Scanning Documents Directly into an Existing PDF File

Hello,

 

I am looking for a way to quickly scan and attach paper documents to an existing PDF document.

 

I have created a PDF template to replace an old paper system for my employees to utilize more efficiently and with less paper needed. While creating this new PDF template, I have learned about and implemented several buttons, some basic Javascript functions, and several other efficiency features for use in the PDF. Due to the nature of the job, we have a few forms that still must be handwritten on for every case "file" we generate. These physical forms are compiled in a hard-copy packet, which I would ultimately like to eliminate. I would like to create a solution that would enable my staff to easily (idiot proof) insert these documents into a scanner and have them automatically added to the end of the existing PDF file that they generate from the template. I was hoping there was a Javascript out there for this, that I could utilize with a button for the simplest operation for some of our less computer savy staff.

 

If anyone has any ideas on how I can get this to work in the simplest way, I would appreciate any suggestions! 

 

Thank you greatly in advanced,

 

Tony
