fillable form saved online

Avatar

Level 1

I have created a fillable form and added it to my webpage. Users log in to their account and then can click a link to my pdf form. I am wondering if its possible for people to fill out the form then be able to save it onto the webpage, so when they go back and log into their online account they can open the filled out form and make changes/add things. I have looked at the http submit button, but do not understand if that's what I want and how I would set that up. Any help would be appreciated.

thanks,

Jaclyn

You can save the filled form data XML (not the form itself) at server location (either in a DB or filesystem).

This data can later be populated in the form when the user opens the form next time.

Additional notes:

  • You need to write few web services to retrieve/update form data in DB/filesystem.
  • You will have to use button at form level to Save and Retrive form data.
  • Save/Save As button available in the Internet Explorer plugin cannot be used.

Would users be able to load the data, make changes and then save the form again?
