Frequently asked questions

Mobile forms are forms that have been specially designed to be easier to view and edit on a mobile device. They exist because more traditional document formats, such as PDF, do not scale easily to fit on a mobile screen and can be hard to edit.

Dropbox Forms converts static PDFs into user-friendly mobile forms. The forms have easy-to-read formatting on smaller screens so anyone can fill them out right from their mobile device.

Those survey tools allow individuals to quickly collect simple data from a small group of individuals, one form at a time. Dropbox Forms allows businesses to string together complex forms, like tax documents or onboarding forms, into an automated workflow for hundreds or thousands of recipients.

Mobile forms can be used to automate onboarding processes and background checks for healthcare providers, to fill out permission slips on mobile devices, to process client intake paperwork, and more. Collect data from thousands of people and automatically map it back into your third-party data systems.
