Now that you’ve had some time to check out the Adobe FormsCentral service and poke around the form-building environment, let’s get to talking details about how best to use it. Over the next few days, you’ll see some posts come up here that dive into some of the features of FormsCentral. Today, we’ll talk about creating your form and the tools that’ll help you do it; next week, we’ll carry on with testing and distributing your form, and finally we’ll take a look at analyzing all the data you garner over the course of your form’s life. For now, read on for the down-low on form creation in FormsCentral. Continue reading…
A week or so ago, the Acrobat User Community hosted an eSeminar on creating forms in Acrobat and FormsCentral. If you’ve been curious about the differences, or if you just want to see the features of both great forms services laid out side by side, go forth and watch the recording of the eSeminar! It lasts about an hour (a little less, really) and is packed with good information.
And, may I add, if you should have questions about what you see in the FormsCentral portion of the program, you can take part in tomorrow’s Twitterview! Have you tweeted your question yet? If not, it’s not too late: tweet a question with the hashtag #acroview and we’ll answer it tomorrow at 10AM (Pacific time) on the Acrobat handle (@Acrobat).
Do you have questions about FormsCentral that you’d like to have answered in real time? Do you also want to win a Plus subscription to the service? Well, you’re in luck! On Tuesday, March 1, at 10 AM (Pacific time), Acrobat.com’s Product Marketing Manager Todd Gerber and I (Rebecca Staley, your friendly local Acrobat.com Community Manager) will be hosting a Twitterview on FormsCentral! For those of you who aren’t familiar with the term, here’s how a Twitterview works:
- Anytime between now and the Twitterview, you tweet a question to us with the hashtag #Acroview;
- Come Twitterview time (in this case, 10 AM on this coming Tuesday), we’ll be on the handle @Acrobat to answer your questions (via tweet, of course).
Simple, right? And – jackpot – we’ll be choosing one lucky question-tweeter for a Plus subscription to the stellar new service. So get tweeting, everyone! Remember to use #Acroview and to look for answers from @Acrobat (not the Acrobat.com Twitter handle – which, by the way, is @Acrobatdotcom).
