One of the biggest advantages of Scribus is the possibility to create PDF forms with embedded JavaScript scripts. Usually, PDF forms are meant to be filled out by users on their computers and then printed out. Information in a PDF form can also be submitted online to a remote location for further processing.

There are still some issues with PDF forms creating in Scribus, which have to be addressed to make Scribus a full featured PDF forms tool. E.g., there is an issue with radio buttons behaviour (see the feature request 866), and Scribus seems to be lacking the possibility to define globally executable JavaScripts (e.g. to execute on document loading).

Nevertheless, Scribus already is an useful PDF forms tool for many people, and it's been becoming better in an incredible pace. Enjoy!
