How to create an electronic signature 

Once you have created this, it will be automatically saved to your computer, so you will not have to do this multiple times:

  • Click on the box that requires a signature – Adobe will then guide you through the process of creating a digital ID
  • Select Add Digital ID, click next
  • Select “I want to sign this document using: A new digital ID I want to create now”, click next
  • Select the first option on the next window: New PKCS..., click next
  • Enter your information: Name, Org Name, Email Address – leave the other options as they are, click next
  • Adobe will automatically create a filename/location for your digital ID (seen in the first box) – you will need to create and confirm a password, click next
  • Your digital ID is now created and linked to your email address – now all you will need to do is enter your password each time to sign off on PDF forms using the digital ID you’ve created
