Can I create forms with LuxSci SecureForm?

Yes! Now SecureForm includes our Form Builder service at no extra cost, a tool that provides a WYSIWYG interface for creating secure web forms. Create powerful and secure forms with no programming experience! All forms can include built-in field validation (i.e. check for email address/phone number format, etc.), drop in Ink Signatures to capture handwritten signatures easily, and benefit from automatic form spam protection without needing to use CAPTCHA.

I'm not a programmer. What can I use to build a web (HTML) form?

Our new SecureForm Form Builder service is the perfect tool to build secure and powerful web forms with no programming experience necessary! It offers a WYSIWYG interface for creating secure web forms that can include built-in field validation (i.e. check for email address/phone number format, etc.), drop in Ink Signatures to capture handwritten signatures easily, and benefit from automatic form spam protection without needing to use CAPTCHA.

Can LuxSci make my PDF form interactive?

Yes, we offer this as part of our Professional Services, which are billed at $250/hour in 15 minute increments. Please contact us if you would like a quote for having your static PDF form converted to an interactive format so that it is compatible with SecureForm's feature to re-fill in template files with posted data.

How do I create a fillable, interactive PDF form?

Interactive PDF forms are commonly made using Adobe Acrobat Pro or Adobe LiveCycle Designer. Both applications enable you to create forms from existing static documents such as Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel files, or create fillable PDF forms from scratch. The major differences are:

Adobe Acrobat Pro is that it enables you to create a fillable PDF from a website, LiveCycle does not.

Adobe LiveCycle enables you to create dynamic PDFs, which are interactive PDF forms whose content can flow and change based on user interaction (i.e. show/hide pages with additional fields). While Adobe Acrobat Pro provides the ability to do a variety of actions based on user choices, dynamic PDF forms offer more flexibility for certain uses.

It is important to note that dynamic forms cannot be refilled server-side by LuxSci's SecureForm. Dynamic forms must be posted as the full PDF file, meaning you can only receive the filled-in PDF file, not the raw data in CSV or plain-text as you can with a static PDF form.

Can SecureForm work with forms built and/or hosted by a third party like FormStack, Wufoo, JotForm, or GravityForms (Wordpress plugin), etc?

Yes, most of these companies offer API 'webhooks' that allow form data to post to an external server and they provide documentation and support for this functionality. However, we do not recommend using them if you need HIPAA compliant form services because they are generally not operating a system secure enough to meet HIPAA Technical Safeguards, nor do they generally offer the BAA required of HIPAA.

Instead, we recommend using our new SecureForm Form Builder service to build and securely host HIPAA compliant web forms. It requires no programming experience and offers a WYSIWYG interface for creating secure web forms that can include built-in field validation (i.e. check for email address/phone number format, etc.), drop in Ink Signatures to capture handwritten signatures easily, and benefit from automatic form spam protection without needing to use CAPTCHA.

Note, if you are considering linking up a 3rd party form service to LuxSci SecureForm, posting data to an external server may negate some of their form service features. We recommend you investigate the integration capabilities of the company you wish to use to be sure it will meet your needs.
