How to collaborate on a PDF.

Work on a single PDF file with others over the internet. Learn how to easily share PDFs for remote file collaboration.

Whether you’re a working professional or a student, chances are you regularly work with PDFs. Doing that is easy enough when you’re completing tasks on your own — but when you need to work with others on a single file, you might face some obstacles.

Luckily, where there’s a problem, there’s a solution. With Adobe Acrobat, you can easily collaborate on any PDF file.

Start collaborating on PDFs.

The first step is to share your PDF from Acrobat. Here’s how it works:

  1. Open your PDF in Acrobat on a PC or a Mac.
  2. Select the Share With Others button in the top toolbar.
  3. Add the email addresses of your recipients.
  4. Select Allow Comments and add a deadline, if necessary.
  5. Select Send.

From there, your PDF will be shared with everyone you specified. They can then review and comment on your file from any computer, even if they don’t have Acrobat. Meanwhile, you can track any comments or changes by selecting Shared > Shared By You in the Acrobat Home screen.

Collaborate on PDFs online.

You can also do PDF file collaboration online with Acrobat online services. Navigate to the Edit PDF tool with any web browser, upload your file, and add your comments, notes, or drawings. When you’re finished, you can download your annotated PDF and share it through email or a file-sharing service.
