My office was previously tried using Adobe X Pro to make fillable PDF forms, and in that program two other files were created for every form (distributed, responses) and we tracked responses through the Adobe X Pro software on our computer. Now that we are using Adobe Form’s Central website, I just want to double check and make sure I understand how this is different.
We use our Adobe Forms Central subscription to “save a submission enabled PDF” and we can distribute this PDF through email or our website. When someone hits the “submit” button at the end of the form, it seems like the responses go automatically to our response page on the Adobe Forms Central account. Are the distribute and response files connected with the PDF form stored at Adobe Forms Central? I just want to make sure that our office doesn't need to be responsible for these additional files, since they seemed so essential in making fillable forms work in Adobe X Pro.
Thank you for your help!
You got it right. When you create and distribute a PDF form using FormsCentral the data submitted will be stored on our servers and be accessed from our website. You don't need to worry about any of the files - we take care of everything.
Thanks so much for your prompt response Randy! Once the form is made, is it really as simple as uploading the PDF to our website or sending someone an email with the PDF attached? I just want to make sure that we don't skip any steps and lose the data. Thanks!
Yep, it's as simple as sharing that single PDF with your users. No additional steps :-)
