On the Internet today PDF files are extremely popular. We email PDF files, print PDF files and post PDF files on websites for users to access. Submit forms are also popular on the web. Submit forms are how we interact with a website to submit a contact form or quote request. Now how cool would it be if you can combine these two great things – PDF files and submit forms? We can do that with custom PHP programming to populate PDF fields. Web submit form data can be populated into a nicely formatted PDF file and emailed as an attachment to the client and customer.

Web site submit forms are great. Everyone has to have one for your contact us, free quote, RFP and online applications. What do your submit forms look like when you receive them? Ugly text only email document with no formatting? What do you do with these emails after you receive them?

IDP has experience custom programming PDF form fields to populate form data on the completed PDF. We convert the submit form data into a nicely formatted PDF document and email it to you as an attachment. You can easily save these PDF file web leads, applications and forms or print them.

Populate PDF Form Fields – How Does it Work?

We take your existing web site submit form, save the data to a database and then map the fields to automatically populate a PDF document. You can supply both the PDF documents and the web form, or we can create both for you. When a user on your web site submits the web form, the fields are automatically populated into the PDF document and then emailed as an attachment. PDF explosion is perfect for collecting online applications that are ready to print and file. Do you waste valuable time manually filling out applications that are submitted via the Internet? We can automate this process for you and increase your office efficiencies. Many business application forms, real estate forms and insurance forms have to remain in a nice PDF version and layout. The best way to handle this is to Populate PDF Form Fields right on top of your business PDF application.

Useful Applications for PDF Explosion

PDF explosion is a technique we have developed for our clients so that they receive a usable document when someone fills out an online application on their web site. For example, if you have an employment application on the web, IDP can add custom PHP programming so that when you receive the employment application it is ready to print and file in a human resources folder. Or if you have long credit/loan applications that have to be transcribed onto a particular form, we can automatically do this for you. We have developed a lot of insurance related PDF population projects. For example insurance applications and Accord forms that get populated automatically onto a completed Accord form PDF. We can also program a custom admin page where you can see all applications stored in the database, edit the data and re-generate the completed PDF with the new data.

Other Uses for Populate PDF Form Fields
