Adobe LiveCycle Forms ES with SharePoint

Filed under: SharePoint — Tags: , — kartickapur @ 1:55 am

We have used the microsoft Infopath forms in the past and understand the limitations very well.

A viable alternative is to use Adobe livecycle forms (ES). Here are some of the benefits:

  • Enable people to complete complex transactions more easily, helping to decrease abandonment rates
  • Leverage the pervasiveness and platform independence of Adobe Flash Player software
  • Enable smooth integration with other systems and services via XML
  • Ability to generate forms that meet your organization accessibility guidelines and styles
  • Create form and document templates and manage changes easily
  • Make it easy for organizations to quickly create new forms using prebuilt fragments
  • Eliminate manual data entry and associated manual processing costs
  • Prepopulate new form instances based on data already captured in the built-in LiveCycle repository or external respositories such as Adobe LiveCycle Content Services ES or your existing ECM system (Like SharePoint)
  • Render W3C WCAG 1.0 Level AA compliant XHTML forms
  • Enable personalization of forms at render time by providing a compliant CSS for the XHTML form
  • Bring the familiarity of paper into the electronic environment
  • Meet compliance requirements in regulated industries by maintaining form fidelity online and offline
  • Leverage the print fidelity of PDF for barcode applications and processing of paper-based form submissions
  • Provide collaborative, live help and application co-browsing during the data capture experience
  • Apply digital signatures
  • Employ client- and server-side business logic
  • Deploy standards-compliant content

SharePoint 2007 or WSS 3.0 document library can be used to store the forms. Workflow can be applied in SharePoint or Adobe livecycle to improve efficiency. Adobe livecycle can be integrated easily with .net (http://whitepapers.silicon.com/0,39024759,60294749p,00.htm) and this provide opportunity for a more seamless integration with SharePoint custom applications.
