Now you look back, the effort you invested in
adding fillable fields to your PDF forms might seem like a waste of time. The hope was that it would be a step towards
making it easier for your customers to complete the form. In reality, fillable PDF forms are a bit of a
dead end. Even though you can fill them
on screen, they still need to be printed to be signed and returned.
In this last post in our series introducing the
new capabilities of Secured Signing, we’ll show you a way to turn your PDF forms into proper online forms by
adding them to Form Filler.
For those of you just joining us, a massive
refresh of Secured Signing was launched earlier this year. As well as a complete update of the look and
feel, we introduced a range of new features including:
Improved support for mobile devices
Rerouting of invitations
• Ability for an invitee to decline an invitation
• Options for stronger identity verification
Check out the earlier blog posts to learn more
about these great new features. The last
of the big updates we want to make sure you know about is the ability to
directly import your fillable PDF forms into Form Filler.
Secured Signing has always had great forms
capabilities. For simple forms, Form
Filler allows you to convert your existing printable forms to forms than can be
filled and signed online. For more
complex forms with internal rules and data validation, Form Direct allows us to
build dynamic HTML forms your customers can complete and sign online.
With the new improvements to Form Filler, you
can finally get a return on your investment in creating fillable PDF
forms. When you add your PDF form to
Form Filler, it will recognise the existing fields and convert them
automatically for you. All you need to
do is save your new form as a template and invite people to complete it and
sign it. No need to print!
Even better, the people you invite to fill and
sign your form can do so on any browser on any device. This is really convenient for people using
mobile devices that typically can’t
deal with PDF forms at all.
Give it a try yourself! Click the Form Filler button, upload your
existing PDF form and check out the results.
