    LiveCycle ES2 Mobile Applications

    Mattmackenzie Community Member

      Did you know that if you've licensed LiveCycle Process Management ES2, or Content Services ES2, there are mobile apps available for you to use?  For Process Management, you can use your iPhone, Blackberry or Windows Mobile 6.1/6.5 device to approve tasks on the go with LiveCycle Workspace Mobile. 

       

      The apps are available on the App Stores (Apple AppStore, Blackberry App World and Windows Live Market).

       

      For Content Services, there is an iPhone only app available on the Apple AppStore that will allow you to view content on the go.  It also works with Microsoft Sharepoint 2010.

       

      Enjoy!  If you have any questions about the apps, or how you can work them into your LiveCycle deployments, feel free to post on this forum and we'll answer you as soon as possible.

            Thought this would be the best place to post this thread. As a vetran user / developer from 20 years ago using Formflow then Jetform and recent years Acrobat Extended does anyone know of an iPad application that will enable the user to fill in forms created using LC / Acrobat. Someone could make big $$$. I dont have the time or learning curve to create a iTunes App and I dont believe I am alone in searchi8ng for an app that will enable the user to download their created forms and complete them in the field.

              Hello Ken,

               

              Thanks for being a long-time user of Adobe technologies.  That's great to see.

               

              As of LiveCycle ES 2.5, our Mobile applications for iPhone, Android, Blackberry and Windows Mobile are capable of rendering forms!  In order to develop a "form" that will work on the mobile devices, you need to use LiveCycle Guilde Builder, which is a component of the LiveCycle Workbench development environment.  Support for XFA/PDF forms is a feature that we are investigating for Adobe Reader on Android, but right now you can deploy data capture experiences to devices using Guides.  The great thing about what we have done here is that Guides are rendered appropriately for your screen size.  That is something that is harder to accomplish with PDF forms designed for (typically) US letter sized display.

               

              On the topic of iPad, our engineering team is busily working away at an iPad specific version of LC Mobile.  Expect it to appear on the appstore soon.

               

              Take care,

                  Matt:

                   

                  Attached is a typical form we created that we would want to complete in the field using an iPad. Any suggestions.

                   

                  Thank you in advance for your time and cooperation in this matter. Should you have any questions or concerns please call.

                              And here a link to the LiveCycle Mobile Setup Guide, which should get you started: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/LiveCycle/9.5/lc_mobile_setup.pdf. It contains links to the Workench help, where you can find info on creating guides (forms) and processes for use with LiveCycle Mobile.

                                I would like to utilize a dynamic for I created in Adobe Livecycle ES2 (with Acrobat Professional) on an Android Phone and Tablet.  Do I need to sign up for LiveCycle Process Management ES2, or Content Services ES2 to do it?  The Adroid Acrobat Reader X will not recognize a dynamic PDF and will not allow a static one to be filled out...

                                  IMPORTANT: Using Adobe LiveCycle Mobile ES2 specifically for data capture requires the installation, use, and proper configuration of Adobe LiveCycle ES2 software (specifically Adobe LiveCycle Process Management ES2) on enterprise-class server software and hardware. The mobile client will not work without a concurrent LiveCycle ES implementation.

                                    I had already gotten that far.  But when I set it up, it appears that I need to subscribe to a fee service to use the capabilities of a program I already paid for.  Am I incorrect?  If there is a white sheet or instructions on how to implement the LiveCycle ES, I would be appreciative (sorry if I'm being dense)...

                                      I have Livecycle Designer ES2 installed on my desktop (from Acrobat X Pro) and ADEP Mobile on my android device.  However, when I try to start ADEP, it asks for account information I do not have.  How do I create an account and does it cost or is it free because I pruchased Adobe Acrobat X Professional?

                                        Ah, I think I see what you're talking about now.  Sounds like you're running the jar and not starting the document services.  If you go to your services you'll see a mysql for ADEP and a JBoss for ADEP.  If you start those services you'll then be able to use workbench and create a process to deliver the mobile content

                                          OK, now you've really lost me.  Services?  In Android (where?), LiveCycle ES2 Designer or Windows XP?

                                          I've somehow figured out how to make a dynamic form in Livecycle Designer (and I really like it), but cannot use it because Adobe Reader X for Android will not recognise it and I am at about wits end with ADEP and trying to get it running.  I cannot get past the accounts screen (auto or manual).  I assume I need to register for some account, but cannot figure out where, what or how. 

                                           

                                          Beyond Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Standard, Adobe Acrobat X Professional and some photo/video programs, I have not bought or signerd up for any other services...do I need to in order to use the capabilities of LiveCycle Designer?  I do not need the information formatted or collected.  If the form was simply emailed filled out in a PDF form, that would be more than adequate.

                                            Hi,

                                             

                                            Let me try to clear up some of the confusion.  As Matt mentioned in an earlier post, In order to develop a "form" that will work on the mobile devices, you need to use LiveCycle Guilde Builder, which is a component of the LiveCycle Workbench development environment.  Support for XFA/PDF dynamic forms, which is what you are creating with LiveCycle Designer can be viewed using desktop Acrobat Reader/Pro products. and is a feature that we are investigating for Adobe Reader on Android but is not currently supported.  Right now you can deploy data capture experiences to mobile devices using Guides, which will also render appropriately for your screen size.  That is something that is harder to accomplish with PDF forms designed for (typically) US letter sized display.

                                             

                                            Basically, your purchase of Acrobat and the included LiveCycle ES2 Designer based forms are viewable by desktop based Readers and not viewable on mobile devices at this time.  LiveCycle Designer is included for use in designing forms for data capture, but it's real power is when it's used in concert with the LiveCycle ES2 Server and associated suite of tools.  Typically enterprise organizations would buy a license of LiveCycle or ADEP server and a number of Acrobat Pro licences for individuals designing forms to be used in enterprise workflows.  All other users depending on what form capabilities were required would use the free Reader or Acrobat Pro.

                                             

                                            The mobile clients were written to support our enterprise customers who are running a LiveCycle or ADEP Server in their organization.  The account screen you are referring to above for Android, is where you specify the organizations LiveCycle Server, and your userid and password of your account which would be configured by the server administrator.

                                             

                                            If you're still interested in knowing more about the mobile clients you can learn more here http://www.adobe.com/products/livecycle/mobile/

                                             

                                            I hope this helps,

                                            Scott

                                                Adobe  LiveCycle Mobile ES2 is really a great app, it helps organizations to increase employee  productivity, improve brand equity, lower costs, and also improve engagement across  screens and devices, anywhere, anytime. By providing remote task approvals,  mobile content on demand, and on-site data capture, LiveCycle Mobile can  significantly broaden B2B and B2C interactions typically limited to static  desktop and laptop devices and channels.

                                                    I'd like people to look at the mobile data capture capabilities introduced with the ES4 release. Now you can use the same existing xdp forms and get them be filled on the mobile device using the browser. Alternatively, if you use LC Process Management, then the users, with the help of LiveCycle Mobile Workspace, can work on the tasks from the mobile device like iPad and fill the form with no loss of fidelity right from inside the task as one would do it with Workspace.

                                                    Please see http://helpx.adobe.com/content/help/en/livecycle/help/mobile-forms/introduction.html and http://helpx.adobe.com/content/help/en/livecycle/topics/mobile-ws-end-user.html
