Adobe Sign





LSU Health New Orleans provides faculty and staff access to Adobe Sign--an industry leading tool for adding digital signatures to documents. Adobe Sign is one of Adobe's products, but is not part of the Creative Cloud.

Adobe Sign should be used to collect legally binding signatures on documents with limited internal steps, particularly where you are the sender and final recipient of the document. Once a document has been signed, it is locked to any further changes.

Other types of university forms should be built using Microsoft Forms with Microsoft Power Automate if a workflow is needed.


  • Signers and Receivers (no account necessary)

    • Anyone can receive and sign documents created with Adobe Sign. Documents that require LSUHSC faculty, staff or student signatures should be sent to LSUHSC email addresses. You do not need to request an account in order to be able to receive and sign a document.

  • Senders (Faculty and Staff) can sign into the Adobe Sign portal with your LSUHSC New Orleans credentials.

    • Senders can create and send documents for signatures, as well as track the progress of those documents. Senders can also create templates for documents they use frequently. Faculty and staff will be prompted to log into Adobe Sign to complete documents from other LSUHSC senders.

    • LSUHSC New Orleans Faculty and Staff have been licensed for Adobe Sign.

    • If you need access to advanced features like "Workflows" or "Web Forms" please use this form to request access and provide justification.


The Adobe Acrobat Sign for Microsoft Outlook Add-in is the simplest way to get started with Adobe Sign. The Outlook plugin will be automatically enabled when your account licensed for Adobe Sign. Training documentation for this plugin can be found here.

One of the best sources of training and Support is Adobe's online help center, including information in this User Guide:

It is highly recommend that you familiarize yourself with Adobe's guide to creating an accessible fillable form in Adobe Acrobat DC in order to prepare the form prior to using Adobe Sign to request a signature.

There are a number of training videos below offered for a variety of Adobe Sign roles.
