About the review process There are several ways to use Acrobat in a document review process. No matter which method you use, the workflow contains some core elements: the review initiator invites participants and makes the document available to them, reviewers comment, and the initiator gathers and works with those comments. If you post the document or email it manually, you’ll need to keep track of returned comments and merge them on your own. For most reviews, however, you can gather comments more effi-ciently using a managed review process. Additionally, in a shared review or live collaboration, reviewers can see and respond to each others’ comments.
When you initiate an email-based review in Acrobat, a wizard helps you send the PDF file as an email attachment, track responses, and manage the comments you receive. Anyone with Acrobat 6 or later can add comments to the PDF file. Adobe Reader 7 and later to add comments. Through the wizard, you email invitations to reviewers, who then access the shared document, add comments, and read others’ comments using Acrobat or Reader. You can set a deadline for the review, after which no reviewers can publish additional comments. Using Acrobat, you can also initiate live collaboration, through which you hold a virtual meeting specifically connected to a single document.
