JetTrac Modules

JetTrac Swiss Army Knife Analogy of Modules

The modular approach to building a set of tasks and processes is one of the key benefits in using JetTrac. Currently the list of modules available is 54 and it continues to grow as new business requirements define new types of automation and integration with mobile and cloud services.

We've compiled a list of common user case scenarios or FAQ's and how JetTrac modules can accommodate them. Click on the Category below to see the list of scenarios, then click again to see details about the module and how it runs the automation.

PDF → Annotations | Bookmarks | XML Data | Highlight | Image Merge | Batch Merge | Combine | Delete | Extract | Print | Trim | XFA

I want to be able to get all the sticky note annotations from a PDF form that multiple people are commenting on as part of a business process
JetTrac AnnotationExtract

Any annotations made in a PDF form can be extracted to a data file containing the date, time, user and annotation text. This file can then be used to update a database, merge the data into another form, use the annotation data as part of logic in a workflow process. This could be a key part of a PDF form Review and Approval process.


I want to create bookmarks for certain parts of my PDF form in order to make it easy for a user to find specific sections of the PDF form
JetTrac Bookmark

Easy navigation through a long PDF form


I want to take XML data from another system with repeating detail lines and merge that data into a PDF form that has unique field names for every field in the form
JetTrac CallForm 

Used for when an XML data file comes from another system with repeated detail fields in a normal XML structure and they want that data to be merged into a PDF Acroform.


I want to visually see the differences in two versions of a PDF form
JetTrac HighlightDiff

Can be used to programmatically identify and highlight the differences between two versions of a PDF or XML


Output with field that is different highlighted in yellow. Note: You may need to toggle ‘Highlight existing fields’ button in acrobat to see

I want to highlight certain fields in a PDF form
JetTrac HighlightFields

Purpose is for a field user to easily find sections of information in a PDF form on a tablet


I want to add images (logo, site diagrams, etc.) to a PDF form
JetTrac ImageMerge

From the server, able to dynamically merge logos and other images into PDF forms very easily.


Inserting a diagram/map into an empty template page

I want to merge data into a whole batch of PDF forms at the same time
JetTrac PDFBatchMerge

Provides the mobile user a single PDF form for fill out which is very time efficient.

I want to combine multiple PDF forms together as part of a production JetTrac job
JetTrac PDFCombine

For documents, e.g. tests/inspections that require multiple forms we combine all PDF forms together into a single bookmarked PDF package. Easier for the mobile user to receive, navigate and fill out the forms as they don’t have to open and close multiple forms.

I want to programmatically remove empty pages from a PDF form package
JetTrac PDFDeleteEmptyPages

This module is the server-side companion to our capability to provide additional overflow pages. JetTrac PDFDeleteEmptyPages will intelligently analyze every field of the overflow pages to determine if there is any data that was added and if none then the page is deleted. The benefit for the supervisor doing the review and approval is that they do not need to even see the overflow pages that were not needed.

I want to extract all the data out of a PDF form and/or I want to flatten a PDF (Acroform)
JetTrac PDFExtract

Extracts every single field and annotation from every PDF form.

The field technicians only receive the number of pages that are neededbased on that facility/dispatch. This makes the dispatched form package smaller in size and a fewer number of pages for the mobile user to scroll through

I want to merge XML data into an XFA PDF form
JetTrac XFAMerge

Meets requirements for populating dynamic forms that flow across pages. Can be used for reporting purposes for dynamic data stored in a database. Note: all fillable PDF forms in JetTrac Field Inspection for UST are AcroForms. Contact ProTechnology for further information.
