It really depends on what program the users will be using to interact with the form. Adobe Reader normally cannot save a fille-in form, but if you Reader-enable it in Acrobat, it can. If your users have Acrobat (Standard or Pro), this is not necessary since they can save filled-in forms.
They will generally be using the reader and I have no problem reader enabling the form. they aren't high security forms but they do need to have multiple approvals documented.
What you mean by "approvals", exactly. Does this mean a user signing a digital signature field, or something else? What specific problem are you experiencing? If you're using digital signatures, when Acrobat is used to export the form data to a CSV file (using the "Merge Data Files into Spreadsheet" method), it does not include any information about digital signature fields, but you can do so yourself with some programming.
I have internal forms that need to be "signed" by several people as part of our inventory system. So I guess digital signatures are what we will require or mouse scribbles if they want. The thing is, I want all of the signatures on the form before it is submitted back to me.
I guess that just means I tell the users that whomever is last to sign will be the one to hit the submit button.
