Adobe Document Cloud overview

What is Adobe Document Cloud?

Adobe Document Cloud is a secure file sharing and document management app that lets users convert any kind of document into a PDF and then edit it, send it, sign it, and track it. Businesses can create a PDF from Office files, from photos of documents taken with a camera, as well as from scanned paper documents, emails and web pages. A combination of these files types can also be merged into a single PDF document. Users can create standard PDFs of fillable PDF forms with built-in digital signature.

Adobe Document Cloud lets users store files in the cloud and share them securely with colleagues and clients. Passwords and permissions can be applied to PDFs to restrict editing and copying rights and protect them from unauthorized access. All of Adobe Document Cloud's features are accessible from smart phones and tablets meaning users can create, edit, view, sign, send, and track files on the go. The tracking capabilities of the app can be used to automate approval workflows, increase transparency and facilitate compliance.

I Am in love with how simple the user interface is which allows you a quick understanding on how to use and share.

Pros
I really like how easy it loads documents both on desktop and mobile. It makes doc seem lighter and sharing it so easily on almost all platforms.

Cons
To get edit one needs to pay for it, not full free but still the best, the user interface is simple and easy.

The best software for storing PDF documents in the cloud

If you use PDF documents in your work to achieve your goals, I recommend that you use the Adobe Document Cloud, since you can successfully manage your PDF documents from the cloud, allowing you to share them, edit them and add signatures, all with the highest security offered by the prestigious company Adobe.

Pros
Adobe Document Cloud is the best cloud hosting service for creating and saving PDF documents. It has two options, one free to try the software and the paid version in which you can enjoy more storage capacity in the Adobe cloud, you can transform scanned files into PDF documents, you can edit and share PDF documents in real time, you can create personal signatures for your PDF documents, you can integrate Adobe Document Cloud with other Adobe enterprise services and improve your user experience, you can also use this software from android and IOS devices.

Cons
I have no complaints about the options offered by Adobe Document Cloud, it is an extremely easy to use software, and its integration with other Adobe services makes it quite complete and very useful for the development of your work in your company.

Used to Love It, Now Eager to Escape

I was satisfied my first two years. It wasn't perfect, but it was good, certainly better than other options. But now, I hate using it and want to find a replacement ASAP. In fact, I'm searching for one tonight, which is how I came across this review request.

Pros
I liked being able to create electronically signed forms on my desktop computer and send them for signatures, and to have the ability to edit .pdf files and provide tracking when needed. I had another program that could do it, but for twice the price. Plus, the other service provider is a company I didn't want to do business with as they are a threat to my industry (Zillow to real estate industry.) But I'm ready to sleep with the enemy because Adobe DC is constantly getting more worthless and difficult to use.

Cons
1. No option to flow a contract. If I send Client Joe Seller a document to sign, and then want to send to Client Jane Buyer without exposing their email addresses to each other, I cannot do it. I have to print out a document signed by one party, scan it into a new document name, and send to the next party to make this happen. It's a MAJOR problem for real estate contracts! 2. They are constantly changing the interface and how it works, which has caused numerous disruptions. I'm completely fed up with it. Every update makes me work harder to do less, too. The latest update makes it impossible for me to create the contract and then send it. I have to first specify who will sign before I even draft the document. Depending how I draft it, I may need to change who will sign. 3. I cannot change who will sign it once I begin drafting. I'm working with many types of contract forms and some require my signature, some don't, but if I forget that it's one that DOES require it, I have to start from scratch because I cannot add one. 4. Changes and updates cannot be initialed once a party has signed. There should be layers and tracking for this, not a complete roadblock that forces everything to be started again from the beginning. 5. I have called and asked how to reduce security settings, how to remove signatures so I can just re-use the document without signature verification, and how to workflow multiple times in the last couple years and get nowhere with it. I'm beyond disgusted!

Overall, Adobe Document Cloud is beautiful and easy to use.

Pros
Adobe Document Cloud is easy to use. All of the features you want are available. I love how it doesn't use memory on my hard drive.

Cons
I do not use this software too often so paying $12-22 a month is an unnecessary costs for us and adds up by the end of the year.

Makes my work easier, opens up lots of possibilities - but has room for improvement

Pros
Ability to edit PDF's Can create PDFs with content from various sources We use it to distribute documentation to our users - easy to modify and redistribute so they always have the latest version Ability to combine PDF files, re-arrange and delete pages Great tool for research - save web pages as PDF, which you can later edit to combine with other info.

Cons
The editor is fairly primitive, in fact, it says if you want to do a lot of editing, it is better to do that in another app (such as Word) and then copy that content back into the PDF (or create a new PDF). Exporting to Word does not act as you would expect - instead of creating a normal Word document, it inserts sentences and paragraphs into separate text boxes, which may look fine to the observer, but is practically impossible to edit. You're better off with copy/paste functions, which give you the text but not the formatting.
