Designing E-Forms with Adobe LiveCycle Designer

The intent of this course is to illustrate how, both conceptually and technically, Adobe© LiveCycle™ Designer can be used to create static, interactive and dynamic forms as interfaces to an intelligent automation platform. Adobe® LiveCycle™ Designer software enables organizations to intelligently capture information to streamline form-driven business processes through automation. Whether users are online or offline, internal or external, Adobe LiveCycle Platform lets organizations deploy secure XML-based forms as Adobe PDF or HTML over any platform or device — from PCs to handhelds — without requiring any new software or plug-ins. This course introduces and describes various techniques for using Adobe LiveCycle Designer ES to create electronic forms that can complement, or supercede, other means of collecting and presenting enterprise data. After the completion of this course, you will be able to create static and dynamic interactive forms that can reduce data collection and processing errors, and enhance the user experience. The course first introduces the basics of form design and describes how to design your forms for efficient data exchange. As the course progresses, more advanced techniques are covered that enable you to add intelligence to your form and to create dynamic layouts that react to the data or to user interactions.
