Description

If you’ve ever had to create an application form, questionnaire or some other document that requires inputs from users, printing and filling them out by hand is not only tedious, but also requires they be scanned or photographed to send back.

In this class, I’ll show you how to take those pdf forms and convert them to fillable documents so that users can type in their responses and email the same document back to you.

You can also create your own documents that you need to send out on a regular basis, such as invoices or quotes, and have fillable areas for cost breakdowns that can be calculated automatically, saving you the headache of doing this manually each time.

The best part is that each form will have your design and branding on it rather than a stock template or spreadsheet, and you can include interactive elements such as links to URLs, etc.

Some of the topics I’ll cover are:

  • Designing your document with fillable areas in mind
  • Exporting it from Illustrator or InDesign
  • Creating fillable areas for text
  • Converting input fields to do calculations and add totals

By the end of the class, you’ll be able to create your own form to use yourself, or send to customers to fill in themselves. So if this is something you’re looking to incorporate into your workflow, let’s move on to lesson 1!

You will learn

For your project, upload a pdf that you’ve designed with form fields in place, explain the functionality of the form, and then let us know how the inputs worked out. If you would like feedback on the fillable areas and for me and your fellow students to test it out for you, be sure to paste a downloadable link to the document.

I’ve attached the document outlining the different formulae used in the calculations video in the Resources section to the right.
