Adobe Sign provides secure, comprehensive e-signature collection and automation from anywhere, including Adobe Acrobat and Microsoft Office.


Adobe Sign makes it easy for individuals or departments to build, send, and track forms for digital signatures. Efficiently and securely send documents for signature without requiring recipients to print and scan. And because Adobe Sign is integrated with your existing BU login, you won't need to create and track external accounts.

Key Features

  • Invite signers to complete documents via through email, even if they don't have an Adobe ID
  • Request signatures from multiple recipients, in any order, a specific order, or a combination of both
  • Designate recipients as signers or approvers
  • Create and share document templates with your team
  • Record a transaction audit trail for each document

What to Expect

Adobe Sign is a cloud hosted solution, for which Adobe promises 99.9% uptime. See the Adobe Status portal for current service status and past incidents.



Adobe Sign usage is measured by the number of transactions made per year, per unit.

In most cases, there is no charge for using Adobe Sign. However, units exceeding 500 annual transactions may be assessed a fee at the end of the fiscal year.
