BuildIT PDF document templates and Apple iOS products

Our users have given two enthusiastic thumbs-up to BuildIT’s PDF construction document templates. There are now over 60 templates in BuildIT that instantly take your business to a new level of professionalism.

These templates marry job and contact details into preformatted forms, saving both time and costly errors. And… we’ve created hundreds of customized forms to match users existing forms or take those forms to another level of consistency, clarity, and efficiency.

If the information exists in BuildIT, there's never a need to re-type that information into a document.

With the ever growing use of iPhones and iPads, we've run into some limitations, brought about by the basic PDF reader included with these devices. Some customers have noticed that PDF documents generated in BuildIT would have blanks where data should be displayed.

In response to this, we have modified how BuildIT PDF documents (or PDF "forms") are generated.

  • When viewing or sending locked (uneditable) PDF’s, the fields will now show on iOS (Apple) devices.
  • To create or edit PDF forms, you will need a third-party app that goes beyond the native PDF reader on iOS devices. This will require a 3rd party application such as the excellent “PDF Expert” app to be purchased and installed by the user. This app comes in both iPad and iPhone versions and is only $9.99.
