How to auto-populate multiple fields in a form

Auto-population can be applied to fields with the same data. The user needs to type the text only once, and it will be automatically pulled in other fields. This helps increase data capture speed, and prevents errors and misspelling.

Step 1. Open your PDF form in Adobe Acrobat Pro, choose Prepare Form > Fields and name the field(s) that you need the information to be copied to EXACTLY like the field where the information will be copied from.

The system will then mark it with a “#” sign which means that fields are auto-populated.

Step 2. Save changes.

Note. Fluix supports auto-population for forms created in Adobe Acrobat.
