Let us look at the key capabilities of LiveCycle ES4 through an end-to-end workflow scenario of a sample government organization. For details of the roles and personas that we will use in this walkthrough, see Introduction to the Medicaid Waiver sample solution.
The Demo Application walkthrough includes the following steps:
At each step of this walkthrough, you will assume the role of the central persona of that step.
Heather Jones, the forms administrator, activates the Long Term Care Services form.
Log into the Forms Manager user interface.
Search for the Application for Long Term Care Services (LTCS) form.
The form is not activated.
The website administrator needs to ensure that only active forms are available for users on the portal. For details on how to make only active forms available on the portal, see Searching across forms.
Activate the LTCS form.
You also need to update the text labels on the LTCS form.
Forms Manager also allows you to download, update, and upload forms that are currently hosted on a portal.
Download the LTCS form to your local disk.
Open the form in LiveCycle Designer.
Change the text labels on the form and save the form in the LiveCycle Designer.
Finally, use the Forms Manager user interface to upload the form to the portal.
After the Forms administrator activates a form, the form is available for use on the portal.
Rye Woodard, files an application with Department of Human Services for long-term care services.
Open the web portal of Department of Human Services in the Safari browser on your mobile device. The default location of the portal is http://[LC_host]:[port]/lc/content/demoapplication/portal.html.
Browse to the All Forms section of the web portal and search for the application form for long-term care services.
The application form is available in HTML5 rendition.
Tap the HTML5 icon to open the application form.
The All Forms page uses device-detection to display the application form icon. This implies that, on a desktop, the page displays an HTML5 icon and a PDF icon. However, on a mobile device, the page only displays the HTML5 icon.
The HTML5 form contains functionality and checks to provide ease-of-use when interacting with the HTML 5 forms.
Dynamic subforms support
The PreAdm and In-Home Services radio buttons allow you to show and hide SECTION III of the current form.
Field validation support
The SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER field in SECTION I is a mandatory field. If you do not enter a nine digit social security number and submits the form, you are prompted with an error. You are then directed to the SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER field.
Web services support
If you enter a ZIP code and tap the Get Details button, a web services call retrieves the corresponding state and city. The state and city values are then auto-filled into the STATE and CITY fields.
Dynamic field support
The Other Income subsection in Section V contains a Description field. When you enter the veteran and spouse other income data, the total is computed and auto-filled into the TOTAL field.
You can also use the + (plus) button to the right of the DESCRIPTION field to dynamically add DESCRIPTION fields. As soon as you add a DESCRIPTION field, a - (minus) button appears to the right of the newly added field. Use this button to remove the added field.
The form can contain a maximum of five DESCRIPTION fields.
Fill and submit the form.
After a citizen submits the form, a process is initiated at the LiveCycle server. A task is then assigned to an Intake or Eligibility Specialist in the Department of Human Services.
Frank Bowman, an Intake or Eligibility Specialist at the state department, receives Rye Woodard’s application and assigns it to Conrad Simms for assessment.
On your desktop in the state department, open the web portal of Department of Human Services. Use the login component at the upper-right corner of the portal landing page.

Click Application for Long Term Care Services submitted by Rye Woodard from your task list.
The summary page opens.
The summary page is rendered via a servlet that is configured in process. If the summary URL is not configured in the process, you are directed to the application form submitted by the citizen.
