  • Click on ‘Sign’
  • Click on ‘Get others to sign’
  • Select the recipients you want to send the document to and click Next. For some documents, you can add additional recipients as well.
  • Send them an email with a link that they can use to access your document and sign it by typing their name into a box or using their fingerprint on an iPhone device (if using Touch ID).

Share the document via email, Facebook or Twitter


Here’s how to send a PDF for signature:

  • Share the document via email, Facebook or Twitter. You can simply share your PDF with your recipients via email, or you can upload it to social media and add a link so that others can access it as well.
  • Add a link in your email. If you do choose to share the document with others via email, be sure to add a link so that recipient is able to download it directly from their inboxes without having to open up another web browser window. This makes it easier for them to review and sign off on what they need before returning anything back again!

Ask other users to add their digital signature by typing, drawing it in the box, or uploading an image of their handwritten signature


You can add a signature to a PDF by typing, drawing it in the box, or uploading an image of your handwritten signature.

If you’re using Google Docs:

  • Go to the document where you want to add signatures from other users.
  • Click “Signatures” at the top of your screen and select “Add signature.” You’ll then see this window pop up:
  • Type or upload an image of each user’s handwritten signature; they don’t need to be signed by hand—you can also use scanned versions!

Track the status of your document after your recipient has signed it


Once your recipient has signed the document, you can see how many people had signed it, who they are and when they signed it. Adobe Acrobat professionals state, “You can track and manage all sign requests.”

  • You can also see if the document has been rejected or accepted.
  • If someone has rejected your document, you will receive an email with instructions on how to proceed.

Now you can send a PDF for signature to anyone. Just open the File on your computer, click on File, then select Save As and the type of File (Adobe PDF), then press save. Your document will be saved as a PDF on your hard drive and you can share it with whoever needs to sign it by sending them an email attachment or attaching it to an existing message thread.
