Hello everyone, I am new to Acrobat community and I have a question. Is there any way to create flows when an action is executed ? For example I need to send an email with all the information from a PDF form to some users from my organization. Is there any way to build a flow or a process that makes an email being sent when a PDF form is filled ? 

 

If the question is not easy to understand, let me know and I will give a better explanation.


Thanks in advance for reading.

 

Regards

This is not a very good idea. What if the user decides to go back and change something after filling in the last field? It would submit everything again? And again the next time they edit it, etc. I would recommend doing it with a button, instead. And yes, you can submit the form to multiple addresses. Just to clarify, the user will have to approve sending the email. It won't do so automatically.

Yeah, you need to better explain what you mean. What should trigger this action?

Hi try67. The trigger of this action should be filling all the fields of a form.

 

For example, I have a form in a PDF which has the fields: 

  • First name
  • Last name
  • Age
  • Address
  • City

 

I want to trigger an action after filling all these fields. 

 

And I want to know if there is any action that allows me to send an email to a group of addresses with the PDF attached to it. 

 

Thanks for your answer.
