Adobe Sign is the electronic signature which speeds up the document signing process. The Adobe Sign services allow users to eSign documents and forms, send them to others for signature, keep real-time track of document status, get notified when people sign—or send reminders when they don’t, and maintain an audit trail automatically.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Adobe has released new features and enhancements for administrators, end-users and signers for their e-signature service. All Pace Adobe Sign account holders (document originators) will notice a new user interface for the home and manage pages. However, there is an option to switch back to the old user interface via a “Switch to Classic Experience” hyperlink in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. By the end of the year, Adobe will remove the option to “Switch to Classic Experience”. Therefore, we ask that you take some time now to get familiar with the new user interface.
Adobe Sign services is only available for Faculty and Staff. Only users creating (or Originating) documents that need electronic signatures will need access. Signers do not require access to this system in order to sign documents.
