PDF Converter Services 10.1.2 - PDF Forms Export

Posted at: 12:03 on 22 October 2021 by Muhimbi


Like our range of SharePoint products, after years of mammoth releases, we are changing our cadence to smaller and more focussed releases. We will still add big features, just fewer at a time, but more frequently.

Version 10.1.2 of the Muhimbi PDF Converter Services is the first of these focussed releases. Don't be thrown off by the small (sub) point release, we are adding a major new feature; the ability to extract data from PDF Forms using the FDF, XFDF and XML standards. Absolute brilliant new functionality for organisations and teams looking to automate PDF Form processing. Extract data using code, and store the results in a database, lists or make decisions based on the value of a field.

For details about this new functionality, check out this blog post.



We love our American friends, but the sooner this form disappears, the better. At least we can process it automatically now.

A quick introduction for those not familiar with the product: The Muhimbi PDF Converter Services is an ‘on premises’ server-based SDK that allows software developers to convert typical Office files to PDF format using a robust, scalable but friendly Web Services interface from Java, .NET, Ruby & PHP based solutions. It supports a large number of file types including MS-Office and ODF file formats as well as HTML, MSG (email), EML, AutoCAD and Image based files and is used by some of the largest organisations in the world for mission critical document conversions. In addition to converting documents, the product ships with a sophisticated watermarking engine, PDF Splitting and Merging facilities, an OCR facility and the ability to secure PDF files. Separate SharePoint and Cloud-based Subscription services are available as well.
