AutoComplete: Making Filling out Forms Faster

September 14th, 2011

If you fill out forms like me, 80% of the information you type is always the same. I always use: 1. My name, 2. Address, 3. Company name, and 4. Title. To save time, we built an auto-complete system, which will suggest text, much like your browser.

How’s it work?

1. Fill & send a document.

2. Then, anytime you fill out a new document, it’ll suggest text that you’ve used previously. For example, when I type “J”, it’ll suggest Joseph Walla (that’s my name) or JN Projects Inc (our company name). It remembers what text you’ve used previously and suggests it for future use.

3. Just your arrow to select the text you need and then click tab.

A note on Privacy:

We know that some people may be concerned about having certain information, like their credit card or social security number, remembered for future auto-fill. So, we built the system to not remember credit card or social security numbers. Our system tests each text field. If it fits certain criteria, the system doesn’t remember it.

How to turn it off.

If you don’t like it, we made it extremely easy to turn off. Just go to the My Account page and unselect “Enable Autocomplete”.

Would love to hear your feedback on how to make this better. Send us an email at support@hellofax.com, if you have any suggestions.
