    Combine Data across multiple forms

    MindMeltpro

      I'm using the trial so I realize it only allows for one form, but my goal is to have multiple forms that share the same data.

      For example, a customer fills out a 'request form' and we will then create internal job or quote forms from that data- would not want to have to re-enter all the same fileds (customer name, address, job, description, etc).

       

      Can you link forms by a specific field ?

       

      Also, do the forms allow for automatically creating a sequential ID# / any type of reference number.

       

      This seem sort of basic database features, hopefully they are available with Formcentral

       

      Appreciate your help,

          Jon,

           

          Unfortunately neither of the workflows you are looking for are currently supported by Formscentral. Specifically there is no way to pre-populate form fields for users. Your second request for unique/sequential ID's is also not currently supported. In general I would suggest looking into using full Acrobat and or Livecycle for these types of transactional workflows. As we may support these features in the future I suggest you check back with us from time to time.

           

          Yours
