Hi everyone, so I am trying to figure out how I can create a link to a PDF on Acrobat that once it is clicked on a mobile device, it jumps to the Acrobat app and saves it locally as a copy of the original.

 

Context: I am a web designer at my church and the people who attend are not tech-savvy at all. I found a way for people to fill out digital notes on their phones by using the Adobe Acrobat (desktop) to create fillable PDFs.

 

However, the simplest way I envision people using the digital fillable notes is a link that sends the user straight to the Adobe PDF app (that's already installed on their phones) and creates a local copy for the user to fill in the blanks so it does not send me a notification each time there is a change in the shared document.

 

In other words, I want to share a link to a PDF but I dont want the PDF to be a "shared" document. Because when the link is to a shared PDF everyone has the same PDF and when a person fills out the blanks it changes the document for everyone else.

 

Is there a way to create a PDF link that opens acrobat (mobile) and automatically turns it into a local copy of the shared PDF?

 

I hope this isn't to confusing!

I would say that best way to go about this is to publish your fillable PDF as an online form using Adobe SIgn.

 

I just provided this answer for another user  with a similar question. See here:
