Q: Can an E-Form be filled out without logging into PaperVision® Enterprise/Radix?
A: Yes. By enabling public access on the E-Form and setting public access permissions, an E-Form can be hosted on any website (or intranet) to allow submission of E-Form documents.
Q: Is the information in a publicly hosted E-Form sent securely to the PaperVision/Radix server when it is saved/submitted?
A: If the web server that hosts PaperVision Enterprise employs SSL, then the transmitted data would be encrypted. Radix only allows SSL connections. It is, however, a good practice to employ SSL on the website that’s hosting the <iframe> tag for the public E-Form to ensure the information is kept secure prior to submitting back to the server.
Q: What are the minimum requirements for an E-Form definition to be valid?
A: In order to have a valid E-Form definition, the entity must contain at least one User Group, since permissions for adding an E-Form is set at the group level. The definition must be assigned to one or more Projects, a Group needs to be assigned “Add Permissions”, and there must be a Group assigned for “View/Edit Permissions”. If these conditions are met, the E-Form can be saved and can also be published (i.e. made active).
A: Yes. In fact, if a customer has an existing web-based form coded in HTML, the .html file can be imported into the E-Form designer to convert it to an E-Form definition. It can then be further modified.
Q: Does the E-Forms feature require additional licensing?
A: Yes. E-Form licenses are purchased on a per-entity basis. Once the entity is licensed, an unlimited number of E-Form definitions and documents can be created. PaperVision concurrent user seats will be consumed when a user logs in to create or access an E-Form document. Public access E-Forms (i.e. hosted on a website or intranet) will not consume a concurrent user seat since no user is logging into the entity. This allows smaller PaperVision installations to generate large volumes of E-Form documents without requiring additional seats.
Q: Can controls be made conditional based on other controls being selected?
A: Yes. Conditional logic is available within E-Forms. For example, a form can hide a section for information on children’s ages until the user clicks the radio button “Yes” to designate they have a child.
