    Default Preplans: anyone entering data using a laptop (Adobe Acrobat/Reader)?

    Hi all,
    I am trying to make an electronic form (Adobe Acrobat/Reader) to collect preplan data in the field with a laptop. We can't afford commercial preplan software (FireZone).

    Anyone else doing this? Or collecting preplan data witout paper? How? Thanks.

    I got a few copies of FireZone somewhere. Let me see if I can find them and I'd be glad to send it to you.

    Is that all you need is just a copy of Firezone to use it?? Doesn't it need to be licensed or registered? If not, I would be interested, too, if you have more.

    The thing is, for collecting the data, ya almost don't need it.

    I'm not that tech-saavy, but I was able to make an electronic form a guy can fill out on a laptop at the address using Adobe Acrobat. Making the form if pretty easy, and it feels like filling out a form on a website.

    But what to do with the data once you've entered it for 500 addresses, how to change the form and not screw everything up, that i can;t do. i was hoping someone had tried to do something like that.

    Would you be able to send me a copy of the form you are using?
