Two different technologien in one nice solution
We are using SharePoint 2013 onprem in our company. InfoPath was not an option for us, since we've started using SP when MS already announced its retirement. Still, form, easy forms, easy electronic forms, easy still functional is a challenge. Our IT department is not so big and we don't have C# stars to program custom forms or support "heavy" solutions like K2. We've tried PDF Share Forms, got a lot of support from their team even before payment (nice, huh?). Most of bugs we've met are on Adobe's side or even on browser's side. Form itself, once deployed to SharePoint library, works exactly like expected. Some designing issues found and reported. Team reacted lightning fast - in newly released update they fixed everything we reported.
We use about 10 different form templates and found, that PDF form creation process has its own esthetics :). At least our HR manager now is one of the most powerful form template generators. He likes to create forms. And I am happy we don't need to create boring forms in our IT dept. Let users do their job by themselves. and thanks to PDF Shareforms team for their great job.
- supports workflows
- supports digsigs
- has scripting tools
Just discovered a software diamond
I'm full of positive emotions. Now I know how to eliminate these horrible paper forms easily. With PDF Share Forms I'll just scan and go. Looks like this year my vacation will be twice longer.Yahoo!
Congatulations on award!
Guys, thank you so much for your product! I met you on European SharePoint conference and got a demo version from you. We finished it evaluation and software fully fits into the business process. Now our HR and supplies depts will be really happy, while IT dept will have much more time to work with real problems, not with web forms.

- no need to buy additional form software, licenses such as InfoPath, Nintex Forms, etc
- is able to update forms
- saves previous form generations and revisions (!)
Easy, fast, and clear solution
PDF Share Forms has very simple concept. When installed, you may work with PDF forms in both directions. We use it for collecting data from external users — mostly contests. Within the SP Workflow we generate different form, based on incoming data.
2. No need to install Acrobat Pro
3. Install and forget concept
4. Very personal attitude — support team made me three demo-sessions, created couple of templates, answers on every issue within a day, even on Sundays!
Great paper killer and time saver
We started using PDF Share Forms OnDemand for our client at local university late this season. During the first day after the publication of PDF form on university web-site admission commission got a lot of free time — application data is sent directly to e-mail for reminder/control and to SharePoint. We spent some time to create correct workflow in SharePoint itself, but now client is very happy, because PDF Share Forms reduced even commission working time.
Now they do not need to copy/paste data from Word forms, may correct mistakes in applications easily, etc. What's most important for academic structure new electronic PDF based forms looks exactly as traditional paper forms. So, when printed both forms could be recognized as correct or incorrect in a seconds. Great service.
Great solution when you need forms for compliance
In our organization we use some standard forms for HR process which we normally send to people by email so they could print them, fill-in, scan and send us back. Not the most elegant way of putting things together. With PDF Share Forms solution however, it went to a new level, and now all those forms are filled in and submitted electronically. The beauty of the tool also comes when we need to handle the responses - they are so easy to filter and manipulate as we have all the data we need in the document library already with workflow status info etc. Thumbs up, - great solution, outstanding value. And amazing service, guys really try to be helpful and do provide help with all of our implementation for now extra.
Field mapping for the big forms could have been automated a bit better.
