Given a spreadsheet of data, you can produce multiple similar InDesign pages with variant data. See the help for Data merge.
I dont' know about PDF forms. I mean, certainly you can can send out PDF forms and I'm sure you can get the PDF form result data into a spreadsheet, it would be fairly useless otherwise...but perhaps someone else can offer specifics.
I'm new at this so not even sure what to put as the title. Let me know if I should update it to something clearer.
I need to create a small booklet that consists of personal profile pages. I imagine I can design a template layout in InDesign and then populate the fields with data from a form. Something like a mail merge in Word. Is this possible? Can I send out PDF forms to people and then use the forms to populate the InDesign template?
I would also like to have the data feed a separate layout for a digital booklet mobile app. What software would be able to do that?
Thanks in advance for any feedback and assistance.
You can design forms in Acrobat that have a submit button that sends the collected data to a receiving server where a script does the processing. You can also specify that the data is extracted and sent via email to a recipient.
