Adobe FormsCentral Retires July 28, 2015

Published on: 07/23/2015

Adobe FormsCentral was a program that designs professional forms using a drag-and-drop online form builder. It provided a customizable template that allowed businesses to fit the form to their business requirements and provided an easy way to receive information online. Due to lack of popularity, Adobe has decided to retire the 3-year-old program on July 28, which means customers will no longer have access to develop new online forms or collect new data.

Adobe expressed its commitment to its customers by releasing the following statement:

“Adobe is committed to delivering exceptional software and services to our customers. It’s in our nature to innovate and try new things, and it was in this spirit that we introduced FormsCentral over three years ago. Unfortunately, not enough people have chosen this path… Our focus will be to continue to provide world-class PDF creation products and cloud-based services that enable our customers to work with PDFs anywhere, on any device.”

As a response to this message and the retirement of Adobe FormsCentral, the Office of Information Technology is asking all University employees to save any FormsCentral data to a PDF or a file type of their choice. After July 28, you will no longer be able to create, distribute, or collect new or existing responses through online forms. The FormsCentral desktop app will be available temporarily for creating PDF forms until the new upgrade to the Acrobat software; however, any online FormsCentral functionality will be disabled. The Office of Information Technology recommends using an alternate solution in place of Adobe FormsCentral to avoid any service interruptions. If you would like assistance in finding an alternate solution to this program, please contact Help Desk by calling 817-272-2208 or sending an email to helpdesk@uta.edu.
