Customizing pdf for multiple users?

I work in a hospital and we use a adobe pdf document where different doctors record genetic tests they order on a page in the pdf. The pdf is very linear where every doctor has to scroll to the bottom of the pdf and add a new page to register information on a new test they ordered (like patient info, test description, etc).

 

My supervisor was wondering, is it possible to organize the pdf in such a way where each doctor can go in the same document and login to their specific section history (which has only the pages they have recorded ordering the genetic tests) and add only to their part without scrolling past the genetic tests ordered by other doctors? Is such a thing possible? Thanks

It might be, if there's a way to identify the last page they entered data into.

How is the form set up, though? Does it use a Template to spawn new pages? Does it have form fields?

It will be easier to help if you could share it with us.

It's basically just a pdf document with each page being the same template and having form fields where we can enter patient information. The only way to identify the last page is to scroll all the way down. My supervisor wants something almost like a website where people login and access the portion of the pdf where they have been entering their specific patients.

 

Unfortunately I am not at work this weekend but when I am I will try to share it.

What your supervisor is asking for is not quite possible (or at least, quite complicated to implement), but what is possible is to add a button that will scan the file and look for the first empty page, and jump to it.

I can create that script for you (for a small fee) but will have to see the file in question first.

You can contact me privately to discuss it further.
