1. SecureForm Setup

With Form Builder, all you have to do is:

  1. Use our web interface to configure what happens to the data that is submitted via your form. There are a variety of options available, allowing you to totally customize how your forms behave and how the data is processed.
  2. Use Form Builder to visually create your form.

Otherwise, getting started with SecureForm is as easy as 1-2-3:

  1. You design your own web site forms and/or PDF forms.
  2. Use our web interface to configure what happens to the data that is submitted via your forms.
  3. Point your form to the web address that we provide to you.

That's it!

2. SecureForm Processing: End-User Perspective

Web Site Forms

If your form is setup as a web page on your site or created using Form Builder:

  1. A user visits your web site and fills out your web form.
  2. When they have completed filling out the form, they press the "Submit" button.
  3. The data they entered is sent to LuxSci via the secure web address we provide to you.
  4. If the data is sent successfully, the visitor is redirected to a "Success" page on your web site.
  5. If the data could not be sent successfully, the visitor is redirected to a "Failure" page on your web site instead.

Note that this process is always the same regardless of where your web site is hosted. Also, unless your web form is misconfigured, the visitor will never be redirected from your web site and will always see your URLs in the address bar. With web site forms, the submission process to LuxSci's servers is always fully transparent to the user.


PDF Forms

If your form is in a PDF, the process is similar:

  1. The user opens your PDF file and fills out the form.
  2. When they have completed filling out the form, they press the "Submit" button.
  3. The data they entered is sent to LuxSci via the secure endpoint web address we provide to you. For PDFs, the user may be prompted to first confirm that they trust the address to where the form data is being sent.
  4. On success, the user is shown your custom "Success PDF".
  5. On failure, the user is shown your custom "Failure PDF".
