Creating Digital Signatures using Adobe Acrobat

We are all doing more and more online now, and the need for digital signatures is growing. Adobe Acrobat offers some tools to help us not only create forms but also create digital signatures that are typed text or an actual capture of your signature. 

To sign a PDF document, you can type the name or insert an image of your handwritten signature. You can also add information lines below your signature such as your job credentials and contact information. When you save the document, your signature and text become part of the PDF.   

OIT Training put together a collection of five short videos from LinkedIn Learning that will walk you through the process of creating a simple form, creating your signature, signing documents, and sending your signature. If you need additional assistance just reach out to the OIT HelpDesk online, we are happy to help!
