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?

  • 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" 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?

  • 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.

  • Acrobat Pro Extended 9.3.1 - Can't use "Send for Shared Review"

    After the last update for Acrobat Pro Extended, I cannot send RoboHelp PDF generated documents for shared reivew. I used to be able to send draft reviews of the help (in PDF) using our public shared drive. The error indicates: "The filename you specified is not valid because it does not include a .pdf extension, contains one or more invalid characters or the path preceding it refers to a protected system location." I have not changed any of the items mentioned in the error and yet after the last software release update to the 9.3.1, the share review option is not working. Has anyone run into this issue and can help with pointers?

    I am surprised the patch allowed you to update from AA9.0.0 to 9.3.1 directly. Almost all patches (updates) for Acrobat are incremental and they must be installed in sequence. I suspect this it true for AA9 also, but I could be wrong.
    I suspect it was the jump that is causing the problem. I would suggest you reinstall AA9 (you may have to be careful about activating and deactivating so you do not lose your number of license installs). Once you are back to AA9.0.0, then either use the "Check for Updates" or download all of the updates and install them in order. You may have to reboot after some of the changes. It looks like you have 7 updates to go through. Folks have complained about the updates not being cummulative for years, don't expect things to change.

  • Acrobat "Send for Shared Review" - Reviewing with Adobe Reader?

    Hello all,
    I am experimenting with Acrobat's collaboration function and I think I am almost there...
    1) I built a webDAV server
    2) Authenticated the document with the webDAV server.
    3) Tested making edits to the document locally... in both Acrobat and Reader (I had to Save As Other the PDF as a Reader Extended Document)
    4) Now, I think I have one last hurdle to overcome.
       When another user received the test file, I was dismayed that PDF asked the user for the webDAV user name and password. Why? This security information should be stored in the document. It should automatically log into the webDAV server.
    Anyhow, once the login information was provided, the reviewer can successfully enter comments into the document. So... sort of success. :]
    I just need to solve that login problem because I can't be giving out the user name and password to the webDAV server.
    Any ideas?

    Yes,  it is.  Especially just about every WebDAV interface uses SSL/HTTPS to authenticate for access. 
    I understand that. Perhaps I am not explaining myself (or not understanding your reply)
    What I am bothered by is that when the reviewer opens the PDF document, in Adobe Reader, the reader is asked to enter the user name and password of the webDAV server and then they are asked to enter their user name, email address, etc. That is a lot of steps I would love to eliminate in order to make the review process as easy and seamless as possible.
    If anything, I would love to embed the webDAV authentication into the PDF.
    Shall I presume that you are using PDF Shared Reviews with a webDAV server? Do your reviewers have to first enter the webDAV's user name and password and then second, enter their personal information, every time they wish to review a document?

  • Acrobat Pro 10.1.13 Hangs when sending for shared review

    Hi all,
    The company where I work has recently upgraded from Design Standard CS3 to CS6. While this has fixed the numerous problems with Indesign, Acrobat's shared reviews still give me trouble.
    In the past if i tried to do a shared review and send the emails from within acrobat, it would crash. I was resigned to a lifetime of never using this feature and saving the files to my hard drive and then manually sending the email with a link.
    After the installation of Acrobat 10.1.3, there is a new problem.
    I can create a shared review and send the emails through acrobat but it never completes the sending. The odd thing is, it does make the review file, copy it to the correct location and sends the email. The only way to get out of Acrobat is to make it crash. It gets stuck at the screen below.
    This is marginally better than what i use to use as it at least sends the email but it isnt ideal.
    I have tried different network locations with different length directory names and also the root directory, but i get the same result. Only once has it done it without a problem.
    Has anyone else had this problem and is there a solution?

    Everyone else has the same problem with sending review emails in Acrobat.
    Do you mean an Adobe profile or Windows 7 User Profile?

  • Captivate Send for Shared Review

    "I use Workspaces with my Captivate software for posting content and for tracking & reporting. Will I still be able to do so?
    The option to upload content and track results in Captivate with Workspaces [] will be retired. At this time we have no alternative solution, but the Captivate team is actively looking for one. Stay tuned."
    Has Abode come up with an answer to this yet.?

    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.

  • Is there an "Access Level" field on the "Send for Shared Review" screen (Pro X)?

    Is this something you can enable?

    It's only available if you select as the review 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...

  • Is there a definitive guide for setting up a web server folder to properly host an Adobe Shared Review?

    In an effort to replace as the host of a shared review file, I have found myself going in circles. I have prepared a folder on our web server, yet I cannot get Acrobat to connect during the send for shared review process. I get the "A network connection could not be created" status message.
    I have found many responses to questions about the change telling me that using a web server folder is an option, but no guide for the requirements of its configuration. Can anyone help? What kinds of permissions, protocols, details must I verify to make sure a web server folder will work?

    I was under the impression that any webdav would do.

  • 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.
