Hello.    I have no problems making a fillable single page list for my employees but if I email 

the file to them to save on thier desktop for continued use they are unable to open a fillable version of the file.    

 

How can I get this to other peoples desktops as a template file that they can continually use and be able to fill in the form and then save that files selections?

Did you use Acrobat to make this fillable form? What do you mean they are unable to open it?  What PDF viewer are they using? Do they get an error message?

Can you post the form here so we can look at it?

By the way.  There is no error message the file just acts like a viewable pdf without the ability to fill in the form.

 

The goal here is for each person to have a fillable copy on their desktop and fill out when needed...

They can use the free Adobe Reader (or the paid-for Adobe Acrobat, of course), but if they use anything else it's not likely to work correctly, unfortunately...
