    Adobe Reader And SharePoint Workflow: How To?

    Vladja

      Hi all,

       

      We are using SharePoint 2010 as our collaboration portal.

       

      Our Marketing department wants to use feedback workflows on PDF documents.

      The PDF documents can be commented and all reviewers should be able to do that in turn or parallel.

       

      We can start the workflow on the PDF document and users can edit the file by entering comments.

      However, as soon as someone has entered comments into the PDF file the corresponding SharePoint workflow tasks are cancelled?!

       

      It appears that when commented, Adobe Reader does not change the exisiting document, but deletes the old one (hence the cancellation of the workflow tasks by SharePoint) and consolidates the comments into a physical new document?!

       

      Does anyone know how to fix this and what is best practice in these scenario's?

       

      Much obliged,
