When I save this form, for every save I give, it produces new file (i.e, asking to save it new .pdfs), is there anyway that we can update all the saves in the single pdfs.

    How do you compile your document? If you have saved the LaTeX code in a file myfile.tex and compile it from the command line with pdflatex myfile, it will overwrite the same pdf file every time. I suspect what you are doing is to use the preview facility of some editor. – Michael Palmer Aug 19 '17 at 20:04
  • @MichaelPalmer I intent to know the saving characteristics of output PDF file used for grading by the reviewer. Every marks allocated by the reviewer, when saved it ask for saving in a new file. – Ramesh Kannan Aug 20 '17 at 5:39
  • I have not used this, but it seems you can make the form mail the data to you or submit them to a server, see for example tex.stackexchange.com/questions/14842/creating-fillable-pdfs. You would then have to create some sort of script that receives the data and appends them to a single large file or aggregates them by student and/or reviewer. That task is unrelated to LaTeX though. – Michael Palmer Aug 20 '17 at 12:41
