Dynamic Form Data Template File Names with LuxSci SecureForm

Published: August 15th, 2011

LuxSci SecureForm service uniquely enables web sites and PDF forms to post their data and files to a secure URL and have that data automatically securely emailed to one or more recipients, uploaded to an S/FTP site, archived in an online collaborative WebAides file storage space, and/or saved to a MySQL database.  With a few clicks and minimal changes to existing forms, customers can have sophisticated and secure forwarding, processing, and storage of their form posts, including re-filling the posted data into template PDF, html, xml, and other files.

Dynamic Form Data Template File Names

When using a PDF or other template file with Premium SecureForm, the uploaded data is re-filled back into the template and the resulting file is stored or transmitted to you.  Use of template files enables you to receive the form data in a format or layout that matches your business process.

With “Dynamic Template File Names”, you can now have the name of the template file that results from each form post be created to contain data from the post itself and/or to contain date and time information.  In addition to being able to substitute general date and time information (such as the year, month, day, hour, minute, and second of the post in your preferred timezone, and a general timestamp in GMT), you can substitute the contents of any submitted form field.

For example, you could specify a template file name of the form:

Post-{{month_name}} {{day}} {{year}} - for {{doctor_name}}.xml

and the resulting file would contain the date information of when the file was posted, along with the contents of your form’s “doctor_name” field, e.g.

Post-Aug 15 2011 - for Dr. Smith.xml

Use of dynamic template file names simplifies the process of storing, organizing, and managing your form data files.
