Is there a way to provide the respondents with a form via a web-link so that it opens in Adobe Reader and then, partially completed, be saved on the desktop and, when completed, submitted via Submit button to a specific email address?
Yes, but you'll have to place the form on a web server yourself since FormsCentral servers don't host them like they do the web forms. When a form is ditributed with FormsCentral, it is Reader-enabled, which allows Reader to save. The submit button sends just the form data to FormsCentral. You can enable email notifications in FormsCentral and then log-in and retrieve a filled-in copy from FormsCentral.
Thank you. This now works fine.
