I have an adobe form that needs to be signed off by the employee, manager, divisional head and HR and should all be mandatory fields. My problem is that I am unable to make these mandatory for each separate person as they use the form and then submit it to the next person. i.e. employee fills out the forms and is required to sign their name and date (mandatory) before submitting this to their manager, when the manager received the form they are required to sign their name and date (mandatory) before submitting this to the divisional head?
That is tricky. If you set the fields as required before submitting the file it will fail the validation. If you do it after the submitted copy will not be affected. The only solution I can think of is to submit the file in a way that doesn't trigger this validation, for example by emailing it using the mailDoc command.
