    Help needed with forms

    simebradley

      Hi I have created a form for a client in LiveCycle ES and they want the form to have the following actions:

       

      1. Client A will fill the form in and send to the Client B.

       

      2. The form needs to have a password on so Client B can not be alter it.

       

      3. Client B then needs to be able to send the form back to two email address with the submit button to Client A and to a central PC when the database will be stored.

       

      Thanks!

          "2. The form needs to have a password on so Client B can not be alter it."

           

            This means the client B can read the PDF but cannot alter it. Am I correct?

           

            If so you can either:

                     1. Make all fields read-only using scripting

                     2. Flatten the PDF so that it cannot be altered anymore

                     3. Apply Usage Rights and set password so that the client B can read the PDF only supplying the correct password.

           

           

          "3. Client B then needs to be able to send the form back to two email address"

               It is as simple as you route the task back to client A and the central PC.

           

          Hope this will help you.

            Hi $Nith$

             

            thanks for your reply,

             

            I have managed to get hold of a script and alter it so it sends to two email address when you hit the email button.

             

            When I set a password in the form properties it will not let me distribute the form.

             

            What I need the form to do is client A fills in the form, then sends it to client B, client B looks at the data on the form (but is unable to change the data) then sends the form back to the two different email address (which will be client A's & the central PC with the database on). Then the database PC will open the form and be able to create a database of the forms.

             

            Thanks

              So you can flatten your pdf using transformPDF activity.
