Hi all! Is there a way to upload an interactive PDF to gmail signature? I want to use an interactive PDF because I want a telephone link added so a person can call my number from the gmail signature when reading. My email from their phone. Thanks everyone:)

You don't need a PDF to do that. Just follow the steps here: https://linkedphone.com/blog/how-to-add-click-to-dial-to-website/

It depends on the email program you're using. I'm thinking that you'll save the PSD as a gift, then insert that into the footer of your email. Depending on your email program, you can add the link either to the animated gif, the phone number test, or both.

What's the difference from just adding the number as text and when a person taps the number it dials. Why add an extra step? What's the benefit of a pdf?

Thank you so much for the Link! I have an animated gif that I did in photoshop with added text ( telephone number). I want to use the animated gif as my gmail signature with the clickable telephone number that will automatically call from the email. Do I save my Psd file as HTML and then add the HTML code you suggested to make the telephone clickable? Really appreciate the advice! Thank you

You really can't rely on an email program to do anything at all.

Very few show PDFs at all; even fewer (perhaps none) have a working interactive PDF. 

Zero chance on iOS or Android.

Many email apps block graphics - I never see anyone's sig for sure.
