Microsoft and Adobe have worked together for some time, with their most recent partnership focusing on Adobe Sign integration in Teams. Now, the two companies are taking their partnership a step further (opens in new tab) with new PDF integrations across Office 365.

The main crux of today's announcement is that PDF services will now be available (opens in new tab) across the online versions of Microsoft's Office 365 apps. The integration allows you to convert several files into one PDF from the ribbon in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint online. OneDrive and SharePoint can also now show rich versions of PDFs, combine multiple file types into a single PDF, and convert PDFs into Word, Excel, PowerPoint or RTF files to be edited.

Separately, Adobe is also making improvements to Adobe Sign. The electronic signature solution is now deeply integrated with Dynamics 365 and will also be live on Microsoft Azure "in a few weeks," Adobe says. Adobe Sign will also now be able to access customer information from LinkedIn Sales Navigator to help cut down on contracting errors.

Finally, the Adobe Scan app is getting the ability to process information from business cards and add it to your contacts.

According to Adobe, the new PDF services integrations for Office 365 are available with Adobe Acrobat DC for teams and enterprise now. The Adobe Sign integrations with Dynamics 365 are only available with Adobe Sign for Enterprise.

  • Great idea. Super useful.
  • True except you'll also need some Adobe Cloud subscription to make it available on your office 365 tenant if I understand it correctly. I don't think this will be available to all office users. Or is this what you guys mean with the last paragraph?
  • Next month.
    MS: We bought Adobe.
  • No mention of Outlook integration that I can see. Acrobat used to have a plugin for Outlook and allow batch email conversion, etc. Hopefully this is a sign that that's in the works!
