I'll do my best to answer your questions.
First, the "Free" Formscentral account does allow you to create HTML web forms, that is the basis of the product and the Free level account gives you most of the HTML forms creation tools to explore. This page goes into more detail of what you get with the Free versus paid plans: https://www.acrobat.com/formscentral/en/features/compare-plans.html
I'd recommend kicking the tires in the Free account and exploring the list of features you'd get by upgrading.
If you sign up for a "Basic 30 day opt out trial" you should be able to manage your account/subscription information here:
- ) Go to https://www.adobe.com/account/my-products-services.html#MyServicesHeader
- ) Sign in using the AdobeID for your account
- ) On this page you should see your FormsCentral subscription listed and it will show how long until it expires and allow you to manage the account and billing information there.
If for whatever reason you needed to create a new account after approval from the bean counters you could share any forms that you created in the original account with the new account and then "Duplicate" the forms, you would lose the original URL to the form (each form would get a new URL when they were duplicated) but the form would be identical and you can duplicate with the responses. Another option is to "Export design file" from the first account and then import that into the new account.
I hope that answers your questions, feel free to ask follow up.
I think I must have reached a limit in the number of forms in the free trial and that prevented me from creating a web form.
I had at first uploaded a PDF filable form as my intial test, and then created a web form as a second test. I wasn't able to distribute the web form I guess, unitl I deleted the PDF form. But now I'm able to test the web form and I like what I see.
I'm able to embed the form in our website using SSL and there are no browser error messages about two different domains and SSL certificates. (Nice).
I will recommend that we get a full blown account and migrate all our forms to this service.
You made my day!
