Hi @StaceyH., I'm not expert on this topic but I'm working on a project similar to what you describe and after some research I discovered:
2. Rather than "recreate this each time the client has an edit" what you can do is
(b) when you've made an edit to the Indesign document, export your newly edited pdf, and
(c) open the original pdf (the one from step (a) that has working form) and use Replace pages, replacing with the pages from the new pdf from step (b).
This way you don't have to redo forms each time, but there is that extra step of replacing pages. Someone may know a better way but that's what I've discovered so far.
Thanks foe the tip Mark.
