Wordpress Application Form

I was hired as a freelance WordPress developer for this project to create an online job application form with some complex requirements.  When building WordPress forms, I use the forms plugin  Gravity Forms  to custom code the  form rather than trying to find a plugin that is specific to the task. i.e. a WordPress application plugin.


Requirements included:

Multiple pages application form
Ability to save form and continue later
Applicant had to sign electronically
The form needed the user to upload files to prove certifications
An application fee had to be paid through PayPal before the application could be submitted.
The client needed email notification after the form was paid and submitted.
The form needed to be viewable in admin tools and generated as a .pdf file to download and print.
