Acrobat PDF Writer – Create & Manage Forms

Delivery & Duration

General Outline

The Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format (PDF) has become accepted as the standard for distributing documents online. Distribution methods include e-mailing, storing on intranet and internet web sites and distributing on CDROM. This course takes you to the next level of using PDFs (Portable Document Files) for generating and communicating forms. The course focuses on how to create ‘fill-able’ forms that you can send to your contacts, have them fill out the forms using Acrobat Reader, and then send the completed forms automatically back to you. How to collect, collate then analyse the data you receive is also covered.

Detailed Content

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Create the basic ‘skeleton’ for a PDF form from an existing PDF, Word, Excel or hard-copy document.
  • Add, configure and format ‘fill-able’ fields, such as:
    • single-line and multi-line text fields
    • check boxes
    • drop downs (combo boxes)
    • option buttons
    • function and command buttons
    • and more.
  • Use shortcut techniques to create, align, size and format copies of similar fields.
  • Use basic text touch-up tools to edit PDF text and add more text.
  • Implement ‘behind-the-scenes’ scripting/programming to auto-populate fields (e.g., automatically enter the State and Post Code from a selected Town).
  • Process the final form so it can be sent and completed by a user with Adobe Reader.
  • Consider security when deploying fill-in forms.
  • Complete and fill in test forms and submit in a number of ways in a test environment.
  • Collect data from ‘filled-in’ forms, and run batch processing for multiple forms and large data collection.
  • Extract completed data from multiple filled-in forms automatically.
  • Export the collected data to manageable data types (e.g., Excel spreadsheets, Access databases) for later analysis.
