Adobe Acrobat now integrated into Microsoft Teams
Microsoft has just announced that they have finally integrated Adobe Acrobat software into Microsoft teams.
With this integration done, collaboration professionals will be able to set Acrobat as the default app for PDF files in Teams allowing them to direct access to its functions, including sharing and reviewing PDF documents, inserting comments and annotations, exporting, accessing PDF documents that are stored in Microsoft Sharepoint and One Drive sites.
“Apps that are designed for collaboration can help keep employees in the flow of work by bringing the apps, data, and workflows to the user. With Adobe Acrobat Sign and Adobe Creative Cloud, Adobe has played a vital role in bringing collaborative apps to Teams”, said Microsoft’s Evan Westenberger in a blog post.
“Building on this momentum, we’re excited to announce the new integration of Adobe Acrobat into Microsoft Teams. This new experience helps remove the friction of switching between apps for organizations that prefer to work with their PDFs through Adobe Acrobat. This new integration may help result in more efficiency, improve security and reduce costs”, Westenberger concluded.
Even though this integration offers quite some features, it’s worth saying that access to those features depends on whether the Team user has an Acrobat account. This is especially the case with premium features that require Acrobat Standard or Pro accounts.
