As a 365 specialist at Winxnet, I wanted to share some big Office 365 news, Microsoft’s 2017 partnership with Adobe has finally started showing results.

Last week, Adobe announced new enhancements to Adobe Document Cloud with advancements for Adobe Sign and new PDF integrations across Microsoft Office 365. Once integrated by your administrator, all Office 365 users with a subscription to Adobe Acrobat will be able to create, manipulate, and view high-quality, secure PDFs right from the ribbon in online versions of Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft OneDrive and Microsoft SharePoint.

Here are a few new advancements that Adobe and Microsoft have implemented:

  • Dynamics 365 Integration - Adobe Sign and Microsoft can now leverage a new user interface for quick navigation, access to personal information from LinkedIn Sales Navigator.
  • Access Adobe PDF Services – Users of Office 365 can directly access Adobe PDF services from the ribbon in online versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint and can convert documents into high-quality Adobe PDF files. Users can now preserve fonts, formatting and layouts, combine multiple file types into a single PDF and these services are password protected.
  • Customizable eSignature Solutions: Although PDF signing and the ability to edit/combine PDF’s is great, the real value of this update is building eSignature solutions that are customized to enhance their processes with whatever business systems they have. With this new feature, users can send documents for e-signature and track their status quickly and easily right in Microsoft SharePoint, Outlook, Teams, Word and PowerPoint.

Adobe and Microsoft are changing the world through digital experiences. To see how you can benefit by streamlining your document workflows with approvals and e-Signatures, contact our MCSE Certified 365 experts, we’re here to help.
