Hi,

I want to create a "portable media request" form with Adobe acrobat.

Below are the fields for the form and I would like to make it so that when the user hits the send button it will generate a new file name using the fields 'matter_number', 'client_name' and 'Date' and send the completed form with new file name onto an email address.

Is this possible?

Only if you can install a script on the local machine of each user... See: https://acrobatusers.com/tutorials/how-save-pdf-acrobat-javascript

Why not simply rename it on your end, though?

Trying to make it as seamless as possible, so the user can click send and so that all files are saved in a consistent format.

The two are not contradictory.

You can "submit" PDF forms to a web page for additional processing that can include emailing a form or adding the data to a database for further processing. This would also get around users having to install some script or another application. This might not be possible on mobile devices.

Can you expand on the explanation for this?

I need these forms to be submitted to an email address so that the person receiving the email knows someone has requested a portable media device, and then I need the document saved as a record so we can trace it back should we need to.

No, you submit it to a web server. That's what "SUBMIT" means, submitting by email is just a toy for testing. The app on the web server, written by a professional web specialist, can add to a database or other permanent record, and can email if required.

When there is a signature field and you click sign, it pops up with a 'save as' box, Is it also possible to have a default save location on a server for this?
