PDFs are everywhere! They are the most common document format and chances are your company is using them.
Most companies spend hours filling out the same forms day in and day out, such as leases, invoices, contracts, new employee packets, Tax Forms, Loan documents and the list goes on!

- This course is probably not for you if you’re looking to learn super advanced report authoring, which will be covered in a future course specifically on this topic. We will, however, make sure you know how to make good solid reports from your data and many tricks to make them look good.
- I don't think Office 365 has programming abilities with VBA as of yet, so be wary of this if you only use Office 365. They may release that as a feature in the future, but we're not there yet.
- If you're using Excel for Mac, you will find that this course won't cover all the various differences in Excel Mac, as this course was filmed using Excel for PC. Some Mac users have taken this course, but it's best with Excel for PC.
In this video, we save a basic word document that we have created and learn how to convert it into a PDF document. It's really easy! Check it out.
In this video, we learn about a new tool that makes it really easy to manipulate and edit PDF form fields online. This is a free program that anyone can use! Check it out.
The first form field were going to go over is the checkbox, which is very common on forms. Checkboxes can be either true or false aka checked or unchecked. They are typically square and multiple checkboxes can be selected or deselected freely, independent of one another.
In this video we review a new amazing software called PDFill, an alternative to the very expensive Adobe Acrobat Pro which allows manipulation of PDF form fields and many other facets and a very inexpensive price. This is a desktop software rather than depending on the free version of PDF escape.com (which is limited).
Specifically, in this video we learn how to edit a pre-existing form field using the PDFill software.
PDFill has many features, one of which is the PDFill Recognition Mode. Recognition mode allows you to automatically detect form fields by simply clicking over them. The spacing and the size of the form field typically is in perfect alignment with where you want the form field to actually appear. This is very intuitive, check it out!
In this video we learn a technique for proper naming conventions. It's very important to name your fields carefully so that they are unique and distinct, and yet easily remembered and recognized. There's also an additional benefit to naming certain fields identically that we'll see in the video.
Part two of the merging PDF pages series, we learn how to merge and manipulate pages using PDFill software. This is very important if you are creating or compiling a large document using multiple items such as W-2s, custom employee fields or several lease or housing contract documents in one giant PDF.
In this video, we review the final assignment - involving adding a brand-new field to our template in Excel, manipulating Social Security number field into three chunks, populating a new PDF form another fun adventures!
