Automatically Create Fillable PDF Forms From Documents
Integrating PrizmDoc's Form Field Detector* allows you to quickly and accurately auto-detect form fields to convert existing documents into fillable forms that are simple to fill out and sign. Convert text, checkbox, and signature fields on AcroForm documents or automatically detect text fields from scanned TIFF or bitmap documents, creating interactive fillable form fields that users can complete through a browser.
Convert AcroForms Into Interactive Web Forms
PrizmDoc's Form Field Detector, an add-on feature, automatically detects form fields within PDF AcroForms and image files. Some of the benefits of our web form API include:
- Automatic form field detection and creation of interactive form fields
- Form field type recognition and identification
- Ability to integrate the web form API into your website or application
Non-PDF Forms Support
PrizmDoc supports form field autodetection in formats other than PDF, such as scanned document images. When you upload a TIFF or bitmap document, the Form Field Detector will recognize an underscore line, a low-dash line, a form field rectangle, or a check box and create an interactive form field. If the Form Field Detector cannot detect a particular form field automatically, you can easily add the field manually.
PrizmDoc supports a number of field types with the appropriate interactive web elements. For example, date fields bring up an interactive calendar. The supported field types are:
- Text Input Field
- Check Box
Once a form is created, the PrizmDoc fillable form API can be used to populate fields with data when some of a customer's data is known. Once a user fills in the form fields, that data can be extracted and returned through for use in a database.
* The Form Field Detector option can be purchased as an add-on for self-hosted PrizmDoc, and is included with PrizmDoc Cloud-Hosted.
