Naming the template, selecting language and adding the PDF
Naming the Template
The first thing you need to do is naming the template. We suggest that you name it something unique about what the form is about. You name the form by writing the name in the box:
Selecting a language
The language you select determines what language Penneo is set to when the users of the form are seeing it, filling it out and/or signing the form. You can select between English, Danish, Swedish and Norwegian.
Select the folder you want the forms to be stored in.
Adding a PDF
The Penneo forms are set up by using a PDF document as a template. Only PDF files are usable as templates. You simply add it by clicking Select a PDF File and selecting the document from your computer. The document will be uploaded to the Penneo servers.
Please be aware that the language selected does not affect the language in the PDF that is uploaded as the template for the form. If the language of the text is Danish in the PDF then it will remain Danish. It is only the Penneo part that is translated automatically. If you need a specific language in your PDF you will need to translate that yourself and uploade a PDF with text in that language.
