I have recently downloaded Adobe Acrobat Pro in order to shift our companies pdfs into fillable pdfs (sustainability strategy). Some of the documents require signatures so I am wanting to know if there is a way to allow an employee to open the docuemnt and add a signature without "sending and requesting a signature" through email, this way they will be able to use the ofrm and sign it ineneedntly from me?
I tried adding a 'siganture block' however this appears to just add text, very similar if not the same as someone simply typing a name into a name box?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
** this way they will be able to use the FORM and sign it INDEPENDENTLY from me? -- sorry about the typos
Use a Acrobat form and add a signature field.
Thank you for reaching out.
As you require that user can open the form directly from the shared drive and add signature in the signature field, you may add the Digital signature field in the PDF form.
In Acrobat, go to Tools > Prepare Form. Then add the digital signature field in the PDF. For more information, please refer to the following help document: https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/create-form.html.
Let us know if you have any questions or need any help.
Thanks for your help, the digital signatures box was not an option so I looked into why. I needed to click 'More' and revert the form back to Adobe Form and the option magically appeared. Thank you.
You are welcome!
