    Getting the form field names from a template

    Jose E Calderon Level 1

      I loaded a PDF form as a template to Echosign server. Is there a way to get  a list of all the fiedl names in ther template?  My plan is to insert information from by data serer, but I need a feasible way to extract the field names and match tehm accuretly with the external database server.

          Hello Jose,

           

          How exactly did you upload the document to EchoSign server? Did you login to website and then proceeded or did you use any API functionality for it? Also, as of now, its not possible to get the list of field names provided in the template.

           

          But, yes, once that document is sent out and signed, then you can get the form field data along with field names either by going to Manage tab and clicking the CSV file icon for that signed document or by calling getFormData function through API. The CSV file will include the form field names along with the value entered.

           

          As of now, there is no direct method to call to get list of form fields name.

           

          Let me know that helps!
