[Adobe Experience] Manager Forms helps the organization in distributing complex documents and pdf's which are required by our employees to do their jobs effectively. It allows quick edit of documents whenever required.
  • Ease of distribution
  • Allows custom coding
  • Ease of use
  • Learning curve is steep
  • Limited file sizes
  • Requires training before use
Helps in creating forms that we normally used to create in Excel. For this reason alone it's a huge upgrade. Plus is relatively easy to use once you know how to use it. Also, it works best for forms that you need to fill in.
  • Form submissions
  • Dedicated sections for images, etc.
  • Various types of inputs
  • Reduced costs
  • Increased efficiency
  • Saves a lot of time

It is used to manage employee documents that need to be submitted to administrative or other departments. It is used across the whole organization, to the best of my knowledge. It prevents employees from having to fill out forms manually and submit them electronically.
  • Submit/complete forms
  • Easy tabbing
  • Scrolling
Filling out forms, electronic databases.
  • Accurate recording
  • Ease of use
  • Transmission
  • Easier for employees to fill forms

I own a design company that does a lot of work for real estate agents. The most common way I use LiveCycle is to create flyer templates for clients. Clients like this approach because all they have to do is grab a template and fill in the blanks.
  • Ease of use for end users - the forms made from LiveCycle work flawlessly
  • Adding sections dedicated to pictures or other elements - there is some room for design here
  • Variety of choices for types of input to be added to each form and many options for configuring each of them
  • Works REALLY well for forms that just require text information to be filled in
  • Biggest issue is the user friendliness for the designer. It is hard to get elements to do what you want if you are adding any sort of design to your form. In my case I make flyers which require not only the form fills, but also other elements like pictures and background design elements.
  • The import from PSD or AI function does not work properly most of the time. If you create a document with lots of visual elements, your best bet is to convert as much of that as possible to a rasterized image and then popping that in as the background rather than trying to import elements. They come out very wonky, colors are lost in conversion, and the layout doesn't come over.
If you are creating forms that you might normally create in Excel, this is an excellent upgrade. PDFs are easy to use and relatively easy to create. If you are designing a template for any sort of creative piece, LiveCycle is frustrating to use, but it can be done. It'll just require you to have patience and work around the limitations.
  • Having LiveCycle enables me to offer more products in my lineup, so that is always a good thing. Most clients like the idea of being able to purchase a template and then making changes themselves, so I've had quite a few sales here. However it's not really something that will make me rich overnight or anything. It's just a tool that enables me to have different products.
  • If they could figure out a way to improve the limitations in terms of design capability in the form creation process, I could probably leverage this software a lot better since I would use it more.
Because LiveCycle comes with the Adobe Suite, I've never really looked outside of it because it was something I already had access to.

I use Adobe LiveCycle to manage our PDF forms and create new PDF forms. It allows me to quickly edit and update the forms whenever there is a change in laws or an internal review of our processes.
  • It enables me to quickly update and distribute forms that have been changed.
  • The layout features help ensure that the forms look professional.
  • The ability to preview what the final form will look like and how it will work, while still editing, is extremely helpful.
  • There are so many bells and whistles it can be intimidating.
  • It is not a product you just pick up and use, there is some training needed.
We use PDF forms for our submissions to the USPTO as well as for obtaining signature documents. With LiveCycle, I can update forms, save them, load them into my docketing database, and have them pre-populated with data. This process ensures continuity, less chance for error, and the ability to save the paralegals time when it comes to preparing filings.
  • LiveCycle has ensured that we are able to get a lot done, with little manpower.
I have only ever used LiveCycle for our PDF form creation. I am not sure what other options there are, but we have never needed to look into anything else as LiveCycle works for us.

The Adobe LiveCycle software has immensely helped my organization by being able to distribute complex documents with the right features that are required in order for our reps to do their jobs effectively. The best part is the number of total options and flexibility that LiveCycle offers when compared to other professional solutions.
  • The ease of distributing files among your team is super easy.
  • The flexibility of options while creating documents.
  • The ability to implement custom coding is huge during form creation.
  • A better guide or intro tutorial would have been great to have.
  • The learning curve is very steep.
  • File sizes can be improved upon as complex projects often push limits of this solution.
If you are someone within your organization that is capable or is familiar with coding or JavaScript or HTML then the overall learning curve will be a lot less and easier for you to start and get off the ground running with. If you are expecting an easy out-of-the-box solution to start working immediately without any type of formal training, then this solution is not exactly for you. The initial learning curve does take some time in order to start using LiveCycle effectively.
  • It has lowered overall costs for other tools that we had to have implemented.
  • And saved time and many man hours for our rep Workforce.
  • I've definitely recovered the initial investment for the ROI.
We chose this solution because it offered more flexibility , decreased our overall expenses and is what allowed us to execute our operations and business needs effectively. Adobe LiveCycle is a step above all of its competitors. Your only setback will be the initial training time investments.
