I am looking for suggestions on how to create an online form that users can fill out and we can then use to populate a database. This is a student admission application and it is rather detailed. I have created a fillable form using Adobe Acrobat Standard DC. This tool does not allow the automatic population of a database: the user must email it back to us and then we import the data into Excel. The problem is that we want to have this form available on a kiosk computer but since the user must e-mail the form back to us, they would need access to their own e-mail account on the kiosk - not something that we want to do for obvious reasons.
I have ruled out using a web form due to the complexity of the form and the programming that would be required.
Any other suggestions on how I can accomplish this?
I think the simplest way is to have the users who enter the building or the place you wish to keep a database about, and who is attending is to have all users register at a desk then they are given a pass card or something similar that way each time they access the place they have to use the pass card that logs them and the details you already have to your database. It should give you all you need to know.
