During Microsoft Build, Adobe announced the latest step in their partnership with Microsoft. The two companies have come together to improve digital document experiences in Teams, and much more.
In total, there are 5 parts to this new partnership. New advances for Acrobat and Acrobat Sign for Teams, Technology Preview of Live Share with Frame.io, Acrobat and Microsoft Purview Information Protection, Acrobat Sign and Power Automate embed, and Acrobat Sign Graph Connector.
The first of those are new advancements for Acrobat and Acrobat Sign in for Teams. Building on the convenience of Single Sign-On (SSO) and the introduction of a home page for curating all your recent documents, tools, and collaboration into one view, there are two improvements coming for Acrobat and Acrobat Sign in for Teams. In addition to enabling signing from a Teams notification, you now sign off on a document instantly, without breaking stride to open a browser or app.
Second up, there's the Technology Preview of Live Share with Frame.io. with this, Adobe previewed an integration with Teams' new Live Share feature. This integration showed how the combination of Frame.io and Microsoft Teams could be used to enable synchronized, interactive reviews of work in progress. Adobe says future products could allow multiple participants to meet via Teams while simultaneously reviewing content from Frame.io with synchronized video playback on everybody’s system.
Third and fourth on the list are Acrobat and Microsoft Purview Information Protection, as well as Acrobat Sign and Power Automate embed. With Acrobat and Microsoft Purview Information Protection (MIP): Users will soon be able to apply Purview Information Protection labels and policies to their most important documents within the desktop version of Acrobat. And, thanks to Acrobat Sign and Power Automate embed, Adobe made it easier for customers to streamline repetitive tasks as well as connect data and apps by bringing Power Automate directly into Acrobat Sign. No code is needed.
The last bit is the Acrobat Sign Graph Connector. With this, new tasks on active agreements will be indexed alongside data from Microsoft 365 and the broader Microsoft ecosystem. Acrobat Sign users will be able to search for and find agreement tasks right within their Microsoft search results.
