Fillable PDF/XLSX to trigger email?

Is there a way to create a fillable pdf or excel document which will trigger emails?

Scope of the form:
create a form and place it in a shared drive where people can fill in their sections of data
once one department fills in their data we want it to trigger an email letting people know a section has been completed

I tried to do a quick google search, but I'm not sure of what this function would be called

Any help would be appreciated!

I am not sure how automated you want this to be.

Have you considered putting a button at the end of each department's section titled "XYZ completed"?  The department would click the button when it had completed and checked its section.  

The button would then run a macro to send a relevant email to the relevant recipients.  (The macro will depend on what email setup you have: various solutions are available on EE for different systems, see
