Automated Forms Creation
FormTool 97 provides an easy way to create and fill any type of form electronically. It gives users the ability to design custom forms, import and trace scanned forms, or use one of the over 400 ready-made business forms. FormTool 97's encyclopedia of forms includes commonly used forms for most of the major business categories: Accounting and Bookkeeping, Production Management, Construction, Real Estate, Human Resources, Sales, Personal Organization, and Small Business.
In FormTool 97, forms can also be customized, through OLE support, with graphs, tables, logos or clip art images. FormTool 97 also offers many new and enhanced design tools to automatically add lines, check boxes, grids, radio buttons, group objects and multiple text styles. Forms can be filled in quickly and accurately by entering the data manually, or importing information directly from an ODBC compliant database. Common user errors can also be eliminated by filling from pre-defined pull down menus and using any of the 100 built-in formulas that do the mathematical calculations automatically.
Electronic Routing and Approval
In addition to electronically filling in forms, FormTool 97 has automated the process of form approval by including an e-mail ready "Sign & Send" feature. Through e-mail, FormTool 97 routes the form to a group of FormTool 97 users for approval through an electronic signature. FormTool 97 will then automatically update the database if changes have been made and also notify the sender when the form has been read. FormTool 97 has high-security password protection for individual data fields or for the entire form. This signature field permits users to secure the form so that confidential data can only be accessed by those authorized. Once a form is signed, this data becomes visible and upon approval the data becomes locked.
