we have Acrobat DC 12 Perpetual deployed on some computers in our business. I'm not convinced that all of those users are using the product to create/edit PDFs, and many of those users could simply use the free Adobe Reader instead, and we could recover the licenses for other users.
I've run a Software Metering report, showing which users are the heaviest users of Acrobat DC 12 - but what I don't know is HOW those users are using it. For example, do they only ever view documents, or are they editing/creating?
Does anyone know how in a Windows 10 environment, how we can identify users who use Acrobat as a 'reader' only, or actually use its intended functions of creating/editing?
The functionality of identifying the users who use Acrobat to create/edit pdf or for reading a pdf only, is not available.
Let us know if you have a further query.
Also, PDF creation may not involve the Acrobat app in any way at all: for example, printing to the Adobe PDF print driver from any other app. You may have to actually talk to people! But unfortunately they may not know whether Acrobat is involved in their workflow either.
