    How to determine Acrobat user usage types

    warwickn64762594

      Hi all

       

      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?

       

      Regards
