Learn how to collect feedback fast from multiple reviewers when you share PDF files for commenting with Adobe Acrobat DC. Reviewers can add comments directly in a shared PDF online, and you’ll receive notifications of file activity.

Open a PDF file and click the Share With Others icon

Open the Bodea Brochure.pdf sample file or other file you want to send for comments. Then click the Share With Others icon to send a shared online file to others.

The Bodea brochure titled Protecting your Financial Legacy appears alongside the Acrobat DC workspace with the Share button selected and the new menu item Send for Comments highlighted.

You can share your PDF document using Acrobat on your Windows or Mac desktop, using the iOS or Android Adobe Acrobat Reader mobile app on your mobile device, or online using Acrobat online services in any web browser. Send any PDF, including PDF forms and converted Microsoft Word (DOCX), PowerPoint (PPT), and Excel (XLS) files.

Enter recipient names or email addresses

The Share with Others window includes a field to enter email addresses.

Allow comments

The Allow comments switch is turned on by default. If you want to share the file only for viewing, click the toggle to turn it off.

The Share with Others window with the Allow comments option enabled, as it is by default.

Add an optional deadline and reminder

Click Send

When you click Send, your PDF file is sent for comments to all recipients, who each receive an email with a link to the shared document online. They can annotate and reply to others’ comments in real-time in the online PDF with no sign-in or software needed.

Manage shared PDF files

To manage PDF files you have sent for comments, go to Home and select Shared by you under Shared in the left pane. You can add reviewers, copy the review link to send to others, unshare the review file, or delete the review file. When a recipient views or comments in the shared file, you’ll get a notification in Acrobat.

You can also share files using the Get Link icon or as an email attachment with the Send by Email icon. Learn more about sharing PDF files.
