Introduction

Through the use of specialized Adobe Reader Extension software, additional form functionality can be enabled within a PDF form for use with the standard Adobe Acrobat Reader desktop application. Once an e-Form has been 'reader enabled', it may be printed, saved as a file on a desktop computer, and routed to others as an email attachment. The features enabled within a PDF form are determined by the document author and the e-Forms administrator during the e-Form development and the 'reader enabling' process.

The ability to apply digital signatures to e-Forms will be available in the future. Digital signatures require additional tools be built and procedures be developed before this capability can become operational. More information will be available in the future regarding the signature process.
