Hello everyone. My name is …. and I am a marketing specialist with PDF Share Forms. Today’s webcast is designated to show integration capabilities between PDF forms and Nintex workflow. We will also have a live demonstration.

It is the only solution of its kind that enables integration of industry standard PDF form format with the Microsoft SharePoint platform and free Adobe Reader.

ARX CoSign gives you possibility to sign documents inside SharePoint without any additional software.Nintex Workflow has an easy-to-use Workflow Designer and PDF Share Forms provide an easy-to-use form designer to integrate PDF forms with SharePoint.
PDF Share Forms allows any type of form to be a PDF form and to be integrated into SharePoint. There is no need to redo forms if they are already developed.We believe that most organizations already have numerous forms. These forms can be in Word, Excel or even already in PDF format. In this example, company employee has a document Travel Advance Request.By few simple steps she is able to design entire process.All she needs is to:Reuse existing formDeploy it to SharePoint environmentMake required changes in workflow schemeStart using and gathering data from the end usersWe’ll see how it works during the live demonstration.
Deploying time for the PDF form to SharePoint depends on the field count.Usually it takes 5 to 15 minutes to deploy new form.What’s more important, a power user is able to do it without any programming skills.
By adding simple actions to new or existing workflow, HR specialist is able to automate form management processes.It’s even unnecessary to store all the data from the form in the SharePoint columns.It’s OK to read it to variables and make all the operations in realtime.
Publish form template online or send it to the end-user. After filling-in the form and pressing submit button,all the form data will be sent to the SharePoint server and saved as a PDF document. Please notice, end users only need free Adobe Reader to fill-in the forms.Incoming request will start workflow automatically.So, for the conclusion:One of the biggest advantages of PDF Share Forms tool ispossibility to run new and edit existing forms without programming.
