“Adobe Sign is the new word in digital document management. With tight integration with your Microsoft tools and processes, this solution offers the best return on investment.

However, Adobe Sign app has its downsides. There have been some glitches and crashes reported by some users while trying to place a signature, which required of repeating the step. Adobe also doesn’t let you purchase the Sign app alone. It requires a subscription to multiple Adobe apps at once and the price starts at $24.99 per month.

The dashboard in the new app update doesn’t show who a form was sent to, and it doesn’t show whether they signed it. Tracking is available only via email confirmations. One used to be able to open the dashboard and see who signed or didn’t sign forms that were sent, but the update offers just a long list of form names

Some of the users have expressed their privacy concern about Adobe cloud services. It is not always clear what, if anything, Adobe does to protect any documents used in Adobe Sign and stored in the cloud.


Overall, the user experience with Adobe Sign app for Teams has been reported as positive. If you or your colleagues have to sign a lot of documents, you need to have Adobe Sign. You can save multiple signatures for all kinds of occasions so you can use in the appropriate one into a document. The backgrounds of the signatures are clear, so the signatures will go over the signature line, making it appear like a real-life signature. It’s so much more convenient to do rather than printing out a document and having to scan it back in, which is sometimes not possible if you’re traveling or do not have access to a printer and scanner.
