I am trying to create a model rental lease form for my company. Basically, our specialist will fill in the model lease form fields with all the important information, like address, owner name, tenant name, utility allowances, etc.
Then we will send a copy to the PO and the tenant to sign the signature form fields at the bottom. However, how do I prevent the Owner and/or the tenant from editing any other field besides the signature and print name fields? I only want our employees to be able to fill in the other parts of the model lease form.
Also, if the owner or PO doesn't have acrobat, will they be able to sign these signature fields?
Maybe you should incorporate Adobe Sign in this type of workflow.
With Adobe Sign you can assign a specific digital signature field just for a particular recipient.
In addition, this workflow will not require from your users to have Adobe Acrobat nor Reader DC installed in order to fill and sign your forms. They can do that via web browser or even from a mibile device.
How do I incorporate Adobe Sign into this flow?
Adobe Sign is already featured in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC as Individual Plan.
If the frequency of these agreements is not too often, and you only need to share them with a few recipients, the Individual Plan that is already included with your current subscription of Adobe Acrobat should be more than enough.
However, depending on the volume of your signing recipients, and the type of PDF agreements that you need to send out to them, a Business Plan or above will be ideal if you're part of a large organization.
Some features, like assigning administrative roles, managing groups or teams, creating web forms to be published as online agreements, and more are not included with the Individual Plan of Adobe Sign.
If this is something that may fit your business needs check the link below:
You can set the signature field to lock all the fields you don't want the client to be able to edit when it is signed.
