Prefilling Form for Adobe Sign and making prefill the default option instead of "anyone"

I have a form I use in Adobe Acrobat that I require clients to sign.

I have formatted this form with mathematical functions so I can't use adobe sign as my template form (functions don't work).

This form has several form fields that I fill in before sending it to the client to sign.

When I request e-signatures the form fields default to allow anyone to fill. I do not want clients to be able to fill or change this information. Because I have a lot of fields, it is very annoying having to individually change the cells to "prefill." I only need the client to fill their name and sign. Using ctrl and clicking the other cells does not allow me to change multiple fields at once.

Is there a way to allow the default setting on a form to pre-fill before requesting e-singatures, I cant stand how tedious it is to change each field everytime.

Had I known this would be an issue, I would have just used excel and then converted it to pdf when signatures were required. But I spent so much time formatting this form in acrobat that there must be an easy solution to this problem, any help is appreciated.

Hi Megan,

 

Thank you for reaching out.

 

Would you mind sharing the complete workflow for creating the form and assigning the fields?

Share the steps you do to send the document for signature.

Would it be possible for you to share the PDF form with us so we can have a look? 

 

Let us know if you need any help.

 

Thanks,

Meenakshi
