It’s time to celebrate the Olympics with the anticipated kick-off of the 2014 games in Sochi. While only the most dedicated athletes are rewarded with the opportunity to go for the gold, silver and bronze medals, we at Adobe have been gathering some tips and tricks to help you achieve something much more attainable – going green. After all, a few simple changes within the office will save money and time, foster organization, and most importantly leave a better impact on the environment so generations to come can enjoy the outdoor games. Without further ado, we give you the 2014 line-up on how to “go-green” with Adobe Acrobat.
- Sign documents anywhere, anytime and – most importantly – online- Send a document, get it signed, and track and file the form in minutes instead of days or even weeks. In addition to saving time, you’ll be saving trees when recipients sign electronically.
- Email your PDF file using Gmail or Yahoo- Yeah, yeah, email is green – we know. But Acrobat makes it super easy being green. Just hook your webmail program up to Acrobat for simple message attachments.
- Take your PDF file with you on the go- No need to print multiple copies for clients or for yourself to view on the plane. With 6 billion mobile subscribers worldwide, more and more people are reading PDF files on their mobile devices than ever with the Adobe Reader mobile app.
- Make your PDF files available online- Convert a PDF into an editable HTML file that maintains images, tables, hyperlinks, and table of contents. You’ll be able to share and have access to your PDF whenever you’re connected to the web!
- Share your PDF files on social media- No more flyers and printouts! Whether you’re social media savvy or just getting started, this tutorial teaches you how to create an interactive button in your PDF, making it easier for readers to retweet your work on Twitter.
No matter who takes home the medals these next exciting couple of weeks, everyone wins when the right steps are taken to be more environmentally conscious.
