Hello! I want to send a PDF form, which the user can fill in via the browser as you can do via Adobe Fill&Sign. However there a signature is mandatory. If I don't have a signature field, one is automatically generated. Is it possible to skip this step? 

It is important that the recipients of the form do not have to download Acrobat etc. to fill out the form and are able to do it in the browser.

Since this was posted over a year ago, has Adobe added the feature of being able to send a form for filling out without a signature required?

Here is the pdf without the Adobe fill-in boxes. In Adobe, I just inserted
all 'text box' fillers for the blank lines. We want it so anyone can fill
in the blanks, but no one has to 'sign' it. When I go to send it, a notice
pops up saying there has to be a 'signature' line and one will be inserted
if I don't put it in. I tried it, and that is what happens.

Thank you for your assistance.

I am having the exact problem.  If this is not an option in ADobe Fill and Sign, can you recommend a way to do this with a different adobe program or process.  I want to send a PDF form, which the user can fill in via the browser as you can do via Adobe Fill&Sign. However there a signature is mandatory. If I don't have a signature field, one is automatically generated. Is it possible to skip this step? 

I need the user to be able to fill in the required fields and then maybe just initial (the signature really isn't that important).  Many times we have to edit the forms (client may need to change date, room number, times, etc).  How can we both still edit the form and then sent a notification of the edits?  THank you

Considering your prerequisites, you seem to be in a situation where using an HTML form seems preferable.

You must use Adobe Sign for this type of workflow.

 

The Adobe Sign that comes with a subscription of Adobe Acrobat Pro DC has limited features so it may be necessary to upgrade to a teams or business plan.
