A copy of Evenlogic's eForms server package together with master copies of PDF forms are installed on a web server. By clicking on a link from within his or her web browser, a user can obtain a copy of the relevant master form and proceed to fill it in from within their web browser window.
When the user has filled in (or partly filled in) the form, the data entered can either be submitted to the server using a "submit" button or saved to the web server, using a save button provided on the form. Saved data is protected by a user name and password and when that user later requests their form again, the package on the web server fills out the form server-side with their data and re-displays the completed (or partly completed) form in the browser window so that the user can continue working on the form from where they had left off.
Many of eForms solutions provided by Evenlogic incorporate a server-side database to store the form data submitted and in some cases incorporate eCommerce functionality to handle on-line ordering and payment.
A mechanism to create flattened PDFs on the server (i.e. non-interactive copies of the completed eForms) is frequently also incorporated. The flattened PDFs can be emailed back to users as email attachments who can then save them locally for their records. Flattened PDF files are often also used by the form providers work processes as a way of distributing completed forms to relevant personnel.
OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
