    Analytics in an interactive PDF, possible?

    chrisr38054202

      Hi,

       

      I'm wondering if its possible to track page views and button clicks in a pdf?

       

      I understand that the reader will have to be javascript enabled but google isn't coming up with anything regarding triggering or sending tracking information to a web service.

       

      Is this possible?

       

      Thanks in advance.

          Yes, it's possible, but very very tricky, especially sending back the information. Basically you can't do it without the user's permission.

          And if you save the data inside the form and extract it when that form is submitted back to you, for example, then the user will have to save the file each time for the data to remain there. Otherwise it will be lost.
