Hi. I came across the groupdocs website today and demo'd some of the functionality. This appears to be functionality that I've been searching for but looking for further confirmation. My interest in groupdocs is related to a system design proposal that would house and document (via database relationship), in detail, all of the artifacts w/ in our executed customer agreements. At this point, this project is on my own initiative and time and I am collecting information for plausible solutions. Below is a brief overview of functionality and the requirements I'm looking to fulfill:
Overview of Desired Functionality:
All of our PDF agreements are created from printed and signed documents which are scanned and OCR'd. Quality of the documents vary widely.. Essentially a user would open one of these PDF agreements and begin annotating specific artifacts of an agreement (such as contract#, parties involved, products involved, key events/dates, Fees, etc). As the user annotates any specific artifact (possibly by highlighting it or circling it), an API is called and the user is prompted for aspects of identification such as [Artifact Type] <>, [Artifact Value], [Artifact Group (Y/N)], [Artifact Group Name]. The users responses are passed to a Database and corresponding values A and B are passed back to the client interface. Corresponding values A and B are updated in PDF respectively as a Hyperlink value and display text for the annotation just created.
1. Ability to Markup/Annotate PDF documents (obviously Groupdocs api covers this).
2. Ability to prompt user for relative information (free text fields, combo-box, multi-select, etc) at the time of creation of any single Markup/Annotation. Data from prompts ultimately stored in Database (i.e. SQL Server).
3. Ability to update annotation text or a markup based on database generated field value.
4. Ability to update annotation with a hot spot type hyperlink in the actual PDF based on a database generated field value. (Is this possible?).
