Adobe Acrobat 9.0 (Data Collection Management)

Adobe Reader 9 IconImage via WikipediaAdobe Acrobat 9.0

The 'Forms' feature allows one to perform data collection by distributing data entry forms (such as registration forms) in PDF format to recipients and have the responses collected and centrally managed.

It is simple, very easy. The steps are summarized as:
  1. Create new form.
  2. Adobe LiveCycle Designer will be launched (which is the real software for this function).
  3. Select a template
  4. Save the form.
  5. Distribute form to Acrobat.com
  6. Email will be sent to recipient.
  7. Email link will connect to Acrobat.com
  8. But you can't fill in the form in Acrobat.com, you have to download the file and open it from local.
  9. Track your responses. Goto 'Form/Track Forms'

    • Check for new responses
    • Filter responses
    • Export responses
    • Archive responses

The good thing of using 'Forms' feature in Adobe Acrobat 9 is that recipients don't need to own Acrobat software to fill up PDF forms. Or other solutions such as www.pdffiler.com
