Dependent upon your version of Adobe Reader, when you click the submit button, the PDF form either (1) opens a new email message or (2) it opens a dialog box with three options.
If the pdf form opens a new email message, you are using an earlier version of Adobe Reader and have Outlook properly configured. Ensure the message has the file "faculty_profile_rev_2009_data.xfdf" attached and simply press "Send."
If Adobe Reader opens a dialog box with three options, you are using the most current version of Adobe Reader. Please use the directions below.
If you use Outlook to send and receive email:
Within the dialog box, the default option "Desktop Email Application" is the correct option. At this point, if you are using Outlook, please press OK. Another box will open and ask whether you want to send the data file with your email client or print the form. Select "Send Data File." Outlook then opens a new email message, pre-addressed to the Provost's Office with the appropriate file attachment. Now all you have to do is press “Send.”
If you use a web based email client (if you use Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera, etc. to send and receive email):
Please choose the "other" option. A dialog box will open, please choose "Save Data File." Choose a location to which to save this file, and select "Save." This will produce a file that you can attach to an email. This email should be sent email@example.com.
PLEASE NOTE: If you use a web based email client (if you use Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera, etc. to send and receive email) and are using an older version of Adobe Reader, you MUST download and install the latest version of Acrobat Reader, available as a free download at http://get.adobe.com/reader/. Please contact the HelpDesk (x-5959) for assistance if you are unable or unsure how to obtain this update.
If you are experiencing other problems, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the specific details of your concern, and they will diagnose the problem.
