Get to know Experience Manager Forms even better.

We’ve put together a spotlight that give you even deeper details about how you can use Forms to create, protect, and optimize your forms and documents.

Since AEM Forms is a first class module of Adobe Experience Manager, it also integrates with the rest of the AEM platform. This allows you to leverage assets within your forms that the AEM Assets module may be managing. You can also use Adobe Analytics to see how well your forms, or even sections of forms, are being used.

Once you have received a submitted form, you will want to generate some kind of round-trip document of record for a user. The ability to create read-only PDF documents or adaptive documents — which, like adaptive forms, change to fit the device —means you can always create an engaging experience.
