Making a PDF Form secure for emailing

Apr 5, 2012 7:35 AM

Tags: #email #forms #xml #livecycle #form #submit #email_submit_button_pdf #livecycle_es2 #adobe_livecycle #adobe_livecycle_form #livecycle_designer #livecycle_form

I have created an enrollment form with LiveCyle.  The employer will send the application to a new employee for them to fill out and they would like it emailed back to them.  I tried the submit button but that doesn't work because while the information they input is received in a .xml file the electronic signature does not transfer which is required.  Can I set it up encrypted so that only the information that is input is encrypted?  I am VERY new to creating forms and using LiveCycle.  Thank you!

    What Designer version do you have?

    You can sign, and / or encrypt the data with the email submit button in LC Designer 10.x

    However, it will encrypt the entire dataset, and not just the subset of the data.

    The other option is to send the PDF file, which will retain the digitial signature if that is required. If you chose to submit the PDF, however, the encrypt option will be greyed out, but you can still digitally sign the dataset, or sign the entire submission.

    Hope that helps.

    The way I think you are trying it in Reader won't give you want you need. If you want to hide the data in the XML email submission (from email submit button), you need the newer capabilities in Designer 10.x to encrypt the submission. The XML contents will look like this after it is encrypted:

     

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

    In the Designer version you have (8.2), you only have the capability to sign the data or the entire form, which will not hide its values in the XML file that gets sent.
