I have created a form that is used to fill out details from an activity (date, time, person, rating, etc.), I will have a file that will have multiple copies of these forms in one file. The ones I have so far, I have uniquely named each field so that it doesn't duplicate the response across each form. However, as others add more forms to this - they will have to either individually rename each field when they add a new form, or it will just duplicate the response from a like-named field on a separate form.
I want to prevent having to manually go in and rename every time. Is there something that I can do that will cause the form to auto-generate field names on the form each time a new copy is added to the file? It isn't feasible for me to have everyone rename each field each time they add a new form - so I'm hoping there is an easy way (template? script?) that can be in place.
I hope this makes sense.

As mentioned, doing so requires setting up a Template object and then using a script to spawn copies of it. One of the parameters of this script can be set to automatically rename the fields. Do you have any scripting experience in Acrobat?
