How do I Automatically Send a PDF for Shared Review?

I am trying to automate sending documents for shared review. Basically, all my users post PDFs to the same location and so they perform all the same actions. I would like to make it easier on them and automatically trigger all the actions. Currently, I am using Acrobat.dll in a C# program, but I am not adamant about using this particular technology. All I could get was:
Acrobat.AcroAppClass acro = new Acrobat.AcroAppClass();           
This opens the shared review wizard, and I can send keystrokes to the wizard dialog box, but I am hoping there is a more elegant method of doing it. Is there an API that I should be using or some other method to automatically trigger a shered review on a selected document?

It took a while to figure out, but I confirmed it with Adobe staff. The answer is no; sending multiple documents for shared review is not possible with LiveCycle or with any other Adobe software.
The only thing to do would be automate with some kind of clicker application or AutoIt, but that is far from ideal.

  • Can you send a document for Shared Review once you've applied an electronic signature?

    Hi! I'm having troubles sending a document for shared review, I need 3 people to digitally sign it and then send it on a shared review. I keep getting this error message however:
    'The document you have chosen cannot be sent for shared review or collaboration because its current security permissions do not allow modifications. Please choose another document or change this document to allow modifications.'
    I'm not sure how I can 'allow the modifications' - where's this option?
    I've tried 'File/Save As/Reader Extended PDF/Enable Commenting & Measuring' but this didn't help.
    We can't use stamps for signing as we want to be able to verify signatures.
    Any suggestions on what the issue may be?
    Thanks in advance!

    thanks George for your response. Basically what we do in our engineering company is have the author and supervisor sign a document (verfiying that its at a good enough level) to go out on review, and if its something that needs to go to our client for review there'll be a 3rd approver signature before it leaves our office - then the client will put it on shared review amongst their staff.
    when we're having a play around with this trying to get this to work, we aren't going in and locking the document after any of the signatures. but I'm also not sure of what you need to do to 'enable' a document before initiaiting the send for shared review process. Are you able to give me a step by step on how to set this up - and how to see if a signature field is 'preconfigured to lock a document' - that actually might be the root of the problem!
    Sorry I'm not a huge whizz on adobe, I haven't had to use it for a review process in quite a while but my current company is wanting to go electronic.
    Thanks for your help!

  • How to send (larger files) for 'Shared Review'?

    We are unable to get PDF files above 5.5MB to successfully 'Send for Shared Review' to a WebDav server (using Acrobat Pro 9.3.0 on OSX 10.5.8).
    The 'save' process fails at the final stage & the PDF is not uploaded to the server.  Files below that size can be sent for Shared Review without any problems.  Have tested this on different WebDav servers & domains - and with various PDF files.
    Has anyone been able to get PDF files above 5/6MB to successfully 'Send for Shared Review' to a WebDave server???
    Is there a file size limit for individual PDF files for 'Shared Review' using a WebDav server???
    Thanks for your help!!!

    Try creating a review without sending the file and then send the link in a seperate email.
    I used the "Do not send email invitation, just save localy" option and didn't add any reviewers in the wizard. Afterwards I sent a email with a link to the file to all reviewers and it worked.

  • How to configure automatic printing of picklist for an OBD?

    Hi Experts,
    Can you pleae let me know how to configure automatic printing of picklist for an OBD?

    1. To see whether picking list (EK00) is generated:
    VL02n open the delivery -> menu bar -> extrax -> picking output . 
    Is EK00 there? If not, it means that EK00 is not generated for this delivery.
    If EK00 is green -> it means that it has been printed.
    If it's yellow -> it means that it hasn't been printed yet. Now you have to goto VL70 to print it.
    2. To generate a picking output for one delivery, you have to do:
    [1] In customizing of shipping point, (img -> enterprise structure -> defination -> logistics execution ->shipping point), you have to set picking output  (TVST-KSCHL).
    [2] Item is relevant for picking, and plant/storage location is not assigned to a warehouse.
    [3] Set default print parameter in customizing.  (IMG -> Logistics Execution -> Shipping -> basic function -> output control ->define print parameter -> V4 -> for you picking output type -> assign default print parameter to shipping point ).

  • Adobe XI send for shared review is missing option for Adobe online services, where did it go?

    I am using Adobe XI and trying to share a PDF file using Comments --> Review ---> Send for Shared Review.  The option to share via Adobe Online Services is missing.  What is causing this and how do I get that option back? I am working on a Mac in Safari. Screen shot below:

    With Acrobat Pro 11.0.06 I have send more 188 files for shared review with deadline in June.
    After the update (automatically in May) to 11.0.07 Monday June, 2 became a cold shower to me:
    1) to start a new shared review was not possible anymore
    2) tracking of my 188 reviews was not possible anymore, "no active reviews" = empty tracking list !!
    My temporary solution: uninstall 11.0.07 and reinstall 11.0.00 with NO automatic updating: stop updating at version 11.0.06.
    Result: the tracking list is filled with all items.
    Earlier this year Adobe announced end of life of shared reviews at the end of this year 2014.
    My question to Adobe: how long is this type of shared review supported ?
    My complete workflows are based on it.

  • Send for shared review - What type of Web server folder works?

    Hello all,
    Can someone please explain to me what type of web server folder works with "Send for shared review"?
    I have created a folder on my GoDaddy server account with full permissions... but after clicking Next, I see the error, "The Shared Folder Location is not valid. Click OK and check the Status field for more information."
    1) It isn't valid? What are the valid server requirements?
    2) "...check the Status field for more information."? What Status field?
    It would have been great if I could use a Google Docs folder but that failed as well.
    What must I do to unlock this neat feature?
    Thank you

    Thanks CtDave.
    I ended up building a WebDAV server and I am now encountering a bunch of new issues. Such as:
    From my workstation, working with Acrobat.
    - After making comments. I click the top button "Publish Comments" - this works well - no errors. But when I attempt to exit the PDF, Acrobat wants to save the document. Attempting to Save results in a read-only error. After trying this, Acrobat gets into a loop where there doesn't appear to be a way to exit Acrobat (other than by Save As new file name):
    Even worse... I understood that reviewers only required the Adobe Reader in order to comment. This doesn't seem to be the case.
    When I emailed a test document for review, this is the message that pops up:
    All that is available is the original content (none of the review comments are available).
    Any ideas?

  • "send for shared review" cannot connect to server

    I'm trying use the "Send for Shared Review" feature in Acrobat 9. I want to send a pdf document to and share with others for review and comment. I first used this feature about 2 months ago and it worked without a hitch.
    Every time I try it by clicking in the menu "Send for Shared Review", I'm asked for my user name and password to connect to I type it in (I know it's correct because I can go to using my browser and the password works), the dialog box comes up telling me it "can't connect to server." It has my correct log in information. If I use my browser to go to, I can log in fine, but then of course I can't get the mark-up feature for my shared pdf files. Any ideas what I can do to troubleshoot? I'm at a loss.

  • Can you Send for Shared Review in Batch Processing JavaScript?

    Hello! I am new to javascript and Acrobat 9 Pro. I have multiple documents emailed to me in a day and need to send/track each one individually. Can this be done using the Batch Processing javascript as a Shared Review?
    I have tried adding a button to the "Add-On" toolbar and start a shared review but can't automate manual key entries for the dialog windows that opens for  a Shared Review.
    What I am looking for is a js file to add a button to execute Send for Shared Review, Select multiple files dialog window, open the standard dialog windows for Shared Reviews one time and then do the same to all other selected files.
    Can you please help, and maybe supply some javascript examples?

  • Sending File for Shared Review

    I want to send a number of captivate files for shared review. Do I need to create a seperate email for each file and log in each time. Or is there a way to bundle a few of the captivate files together and jsut send them in one email.
    Or can I give someone access to a folder on my workspace in the Adobe area.

    Is the bundled Reviewer not waht you want? The reviewers do not need to have Captivate installed, just have to download the reviewer which is free.
    You can post files on and share the workspace or files with other people. Or you can use the service SendNow to send files as well.

  • Adobe Captivate 8 Send For Shared Review link to Adobe Captivate Reviewer provides no download for Captivate 8

    In Adobe Captivate 8 if you use the feature "Send for Shared Review" and select the option "Send Email" and "Attach Adobe Captivate Reviewer" the end result is a link generated in the email to download Adobe Captivate Reviewer (doesn't attach it as indicated).
    As noted in the email Adobe Captivate 8 Reviewer is REQUIRED to review the file. No big deal there is a link to it in the email : the download link -
    Unfortunately that link redirects to another page and on that page there is no Adobe Captivate 8 Reviewer link to download. *screenshot of the page below*
    Anyone know the correct link location to download Adobe Captivate 8 Reviewer?
    I am still searching but so far have been unable to find it.
    Thank you in advance to anyone that can help.

    When sharing the link for people to review use the same link but just give instructions to use the one specified for 7.0 (mac or windows).
    Sorry to ask again but want to make sure before I send this out to people.
    Thank you.

  • API for Shared Review in Acrobat SDK

    I would like to implement the functionality for Shared Review programmatically.
    Right now we need to open each pdf file select Comments -> Send for Shared Review in Acrobat Professional and follow the steps in wizard.
    I am looking at achieving the above steps programmatically so that I need not open each pdf individually and run through the wizard. For this, is there any API available either in Acrobat 8.1 or 9.0 SDK which I can make use of and build an automatic service.
    A swift response is appreciated.
    Thanks & regards,

    is there (today - 2011) really still no API for that?
    Also not in LiveCycle Server?

  • Acrobat XI will not access contacts for shared review

    I started having this problem yesterday after updating to Acrobat DC and then realizing we weren't ready for DC, so I  uninstalled DC and re-installed XI.
    When I try to send for shared review, collecting on our internal server, as soon as I click on the "To:" or "CC;" buttons, a window pops up like normal where Acrobat is trying to connect to Google (we manage our email through Gmail) to access my contacts. However, neither the "allow access" or "no thanks" buttons are clickable. I have to manually close the window which then kicks back an Authentication Failed message.
    I did a full uninstall of Acrobat DC and a full re-install of XI a couple times, but still get the same errors and have the same issues.
    I am on a networked environment, newer MacPro, 10.10.3 Yosemite, as I said before, using Gmail to manage company email.
    Please help - Our process relies heavily on Shared Review, and without it, I am dead in the water.

    This is the error I am now receiving and I cannot click the Allow access or No Thanks buttons...

  • Seeking Options for Workspaces for Shared Reviews

    Can anyone tell me if an owncloud site ( can be used as a web server folder for shared reviews?

    Search the forum for RAID and see what you get. We state this a lot.
    BEST? Or AFFORDABLE? Or a mixture of both? What format of HD will you be working with? Not all formats require a raid, like HDV. That can be editing off of firewire drives as it has the same data rate as DV.
    Look at CalDigit, G-Technology, Sonnet. I highly recommend eSATA Raids.
