How do I make a field un-editable?

Discover the process of hardcoding a field on your mapped PDF to ensure it remains uneditable after creating a customer record.

To make a field un-editable, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the PDF Mapping homepage, then select and open the mapped PDF that you would like to edit.
  2. Select a field that currently exists on the PDF to open the field's properties.
  3. In the field's properties, open the Advanced settings.
  4. In the Advanced settings of the field's properties, check the  Read Only box.

By having a field be read only, it acts as an annotation that cannot be edited by the customer on the merchant application or from the PDF Authoring section of an existing customer record.

Here is a short video that provides a clear explanation of the process mentioned above:
