One great way to capture whether your end-users have interacted with your content is by embedding a PDF form into your document.

Here's how to create your PDF form so that the submitted data goes directly to your server

Create your PDF Form as you normally would. Add in any and as many form fields you need.

(All field names are case sensitive)

Add a "Submit Button" to your form (required)

  1. Add a “Text Field” to your form:
  2. On the “General” tab set the “Name” to “DigitalThirdPartyServer”.
  3. On the “General” tab under “Common Properties," set the “Form Field” value to “Hidden."
  4. On the “Options” tab set the default value field to the URL of your server (e.g. http://server.company.com/form/post.aspx).

Set up a Submission Success Message (optional)

If you don’t add this field to your form, the default value “Thank You” will be used.

  1. Add a “Text Field” to your form:
  2. On the “General” tab set the “Name” to “DigitalFormSuccessMsg”.
  3. On the “General” tab under “Common Properties," set the “Form Field” value to “Hidden."
  4. On the “Options” tab set the default value field to the desired form submission success message.


Thats it! Once you are done creating, save your file and upload into your Mimeo Digital Admin library.
