AEM Forms on JEE provides the capability of using an adaptive form in HTML Workspace.
As one can select an XDP during Process design, the capability to browse from an existing adaptive form AEM repository has been added. The capability gives the Process designer the ability to configure an adaptive form in Starting Point as well as in Task.
Perform the following to enable adaptive forms to be used in process design:
- In Assign Task and Start Point, you can browse to an adaptive form asset in the CRX repository when assigning a form asset to a task.
- In the Assign Task/Start Point Workbench property sheet, you can hide top-level/global toolbar of an adaptive form.
- You can use new Action profiles for Render and Submit actions in adaptive forms.
Because adaptive forms are in the AEM repository, the LiveCycle application export contains only the references for adaptive forms used. Therefore, the export and import of LiveCycle application is a two-step process. The LiveCycle application includes process definitions, and so on. A separate package containing adaptive forms is exported as a ZIP file from AEM. While importing, the LiveCycle application is imported through Workbench and adaptive forms are imported through AEM.
HTML Workspace provides some adaptive form-specific controls in addition to controls that are available for mobile forms. A user can add attachments, save, sign, submit, and navigate the adaptive forms in HTML Workspace when the user opens a Task or Start Point. The following are the specifics:
Workspace navigation controls for Adaptive Forms: Next/Previous buttons are available along with save, Submit, and Route Action buttons for an adaptive form in HTML Workspace. Click Next/Previous buttons to navigate panels of adaptive forms in HTML Workspace. The Next/Previous buttons provide deep navigation, similar to navigation controls in the Mobile view of adaptive forms.
eSign Services and Summary Component of Adaptive Form: The Summary component is non-operational in HTML Workspace. In other words, if an adaptive form has a Summary component, it is not visible in workspace. Instead of Auto Submit in the Esign component, the workspace user clicks the Submit or a route action in HTML Workspace. After a document is signed, it is visible as a flat signed document. Click Submit or a route action to close/complete the task or Start Point.
The signed document is collected from the eSign services server, and the data xml file is forwarded to the next step in the process.
