      • If the string is unique within your account, an option to create a new user is provided
    • Choose the product role (authority level) for the user
    • Click Save
    Add user to Adobe Sign

  4. A success message displays when the user rights have been updated in the Admin Console and the user in Acrobat Sign is updated with the new role authority.

Error When Admin Assigns Seat to a User

If you are getting this error, try delegating again using a different end-user email address, or Contact Support.
