Smart forms solution for SharePoint

4.53/5 (17 reviews)

PDF Share Forms overview

PDF Share Forms is a smart form solution for SharePoint which enables users to manage the complete form lifecycle, with form drafting and version control, attachment support, digital signature, automated field extraction, and more. Cloud-based and on-premise solutions are available, and multiple versions of SharePoint are supported.

PDF Share Forms allows users to create and customize forms, including designing their own form templates and importing existing documents. Users can choose to enable drafting when appropriate, allowing form filling to be paused and resumed. Forms can be integrated with existing business processes, and users have full control over which fields are read-only or required at each stage, whether submission, approval, or archiving. Forms can be pre-populated with data from multiple different sources, and complex cascading dropdown lists can be included to assist users in navigating large information lists.

PDF Share Forms offers automated field extraction for populating SharePoint columns without requiring programming, and allows users to export data to Excel for analysis. Certificate-based digital signatures are supported, and forms can be sent out to non-authenticated users for completion. The system is also compatible with government forms and compliant with Section 508 accessibility regulations.

Our company is a group of highly professional electronic engineers that specialize in lighting systems. We build and design lighting projects ranging from one bedroom apartments to stadiums. Another important aspect of our business is consulting and training and this is where we wanted to step up our game. At same point it has become a real pain to manage internal training for our staff and external training for customers and gather feedback. The management has decided that it would be more practical to invest into PDF Share Forms rather than hire more office people to admin training scheduling and documentation. We also plan to implement this solution in other aspect of the business in the near future. Thanks to PDF Share Forms we managed to automate a lot of processes and put them in one solid workflow. Trainees can easily access training application forms in our SharePoint environment or on our website if they are external users, fill in the forms where they can see the availability of training sessions and book dates. After the training they automatically receive feedback forms that then are routed to trainers for assessment and reporting for higher managers. This really helped to avoid scheduling conflicts, monitor workload for trainers and asses their performance and also gave us a lot of insight on how we can improve our training practices. Cons: Not everything was out of the box and it took some tinkering to set SP workflows and add some custom code. Luckily all tools are there and the support team was very helpful.

We managed to improve handling of order forms significantly with this product. The idea was to connect forms to SQL database where we store all our SKUs and let our customer fill in forms and pick exactly what they need from dropdowns populated from SQL Work with external data sources. We really needed just one - SQL database

My small startup company specializes in consulting businesses that are looking for InfoPath replacement. Fillable and easily shareable forms are vital to any document management systems in any organization. MS InfoPath was a solution of choice for many business till the announcement of the end of support for InfoPath. We took these news as a business opportunity and started to look at potential options for InfoPath replacement. PDF Share Forms stood out as a product with the richest functionality compared to similar products. It cannot replace Microsoft's dying product completely, but what it has to offer right now is already quite impressive. Transition period for InfoPath users can take some time to get used to the product like PDF Share Forms, but I belie it is a good thing overall. It is based on the PDF document format that everyone is familiar with and it makes it more sense to new users. The only complaint would be lack of supporting materials like guides and How-to's. Sometimes we had to ask developers to prepare custom guides for us.

Report generation in PDFs

My company provides commercial property security services. Mainly surveillance, alarms and patrolling. We use PDF Share Forms to generate response and patrol team reports fast and eliminate errors. It is vital for us and our clients to know the details in case of emergency like: what team responded to signal, what time it happened, who was the shift manager, what is the property's address and etc. All our response team cars have built in computers with 4G internet connection that allows reaching our SharePoint site with forms with some prepopulated data. It takes a couple of clicks to generate a report that looks like a proper presentable document and automatically send it to the shift manager for review. Shift manager verifies the document, signs it and the workflow automatically sends it to the client. Nice and simple! Before we implemented this product manual report management was taking far too much time and was susceptible for human errors. Now having a backlog of reports to send to clients is a thing of the past.
