You can get documents signed by others using the Send for Signature tool, which relies on cloud services provided by Adobe Sign. It lets signers quickly sign agreements from anywhere using a web browser or mobile device. Signers are not required to sign up or purchase any Adobe product to sign the agreements.

The Send for Signature tool also helps you track the entire signing process. The tool sends an email to your signers asking them to sign an agreement. Once signed, both you and your signers receive the signed PDF by email.

  5. When you've placed all desired fields in the document, click Send. The document is sent for signature to the recipients and a confirmation notice is displayed.

    Sent for signature confirmation

    You receive an email from Adobe Sign stating that the agreements have been sent to the first signer for signature. The first signer also receives an email with a link to sign the agreement. When the signer adds his or her signature in the signature field and then clicks the Click to sign button, the agreement is sent to the next signer with a link to sign, and so on. Everyone gets a copy of the signed agreement.


    Signers are not required to sign up or purchase any Adobe product to sign the agreements. They can sign agreements from anywhere using a web browser or mobile device.

    All your signed documents are kept at one place and you can access them from anywhere. For more information, see the Track documents sent for signature section below.
