Acrobat Form Email

September 27, 2015

Created a quick test form file for a customer that would include a way for the file to be printed and emailed about to him. The file when the email button is clicked will give two options, one to use the default email program to send out, this works for some email programs, such as Outlook and Mail, it doesn’t work for Thunderbird. The other option is for web based email, where you have to sign into the website to see the email, such as Yahoo. With the web based email it will save a copy of the filled in form that they will need to attached to an email to the customer.

This file I used a generic just for testing purposes (test@test.com), if you want to test it change the address after ‘mailto:’ to your address. You’ll need to go into tools > forms > edit; then double click the email button at the bottom. From there you can decide what information needs to be emailed out, such as all or just the xml file, which is all you need if you’re going to compile them into an Excel file.
