Fill PDF module: Web form data in, completed PDF form out

If you work in or serve a paperwork-heavy industry, such as real estate, the government, education/schools, law, or sports, you may find that the delay between sending out a PDF form to complete and receiving that form back are adding delay to your workflow. What you may not realize is that your visitors could be filling out forms on your Web site/intranet/whatever, and you could be populating your existing (or soon to exist?) fillable PDFs with that data! It'd be an administrative load off your back. Worth a look, right? That's what this presentation will give you. I'm the maintainer of Fill PDF. It's a Drupal module that, in my opinion, not enough people know about. It's called Fill PDF (as you've probably guessed). You can get an initial idea of it here: Fill PDF on Drupal.org. This presentation will start with a demo and lead into a module tour. I'll highlight some cool features. Then we'll have Q&A and a mention of Fill PDF Service, an optional hosted solution to perform some of the functions needed for Fill PDF to work. Lots of people in real estate, as well as some in schools and sports organizations, use this module to ease the work of paperwork. Come check it out!
