Sign a PDF file - using a flow

Hello everybody, 

 

I want to create a flow for a library, where we want to store all our PDF documents which need to be electronically signed.

 

I have tried to create a flow as follows:

 

1. For a selected file (SharePoint) - the file status is "Not signed"

2. Initialize a variable: "Signee"

3. Get file properties (SharePoint)

4. Set variable, "Signee" where the value is "Signee Email"

5. Get file content (SharePoint)

6. Create a file (One drive for Business)

6. Send an email (Microsoft Outlook)

7. The "Signee", opens the pdf file sign it, save it and rename the file by adding at the beginning "SIGNED"

8. Condition: If the filename startsWith SIGNED

If YES

9. Get file content ((One drive for Business)

10. Create file 2 (SharePoint)

11. Update file properties (Sharepoint) - the file status is "SIGNED"

12. Send an email to the user who triggered the flow - the user is informed that the file is signed.

 

The problem is that the file which is created in SharePoint (after the SIGNEE signed the document) does not contain the digital signature.

 

Any ideas are more than welcome!

 

Thank you and stay safe!

Hi @claudia,

 

Unfortunately, if you have no license for Adobe, there is no free action that could sign the doc.

Re: Sign a PDF file - using a flow

Hi @claudia,

 

What connector did you use to sign the file?

Generally, I use Adobe sign most to sign a file, it is a standard connector, you could have a try with it:

Thank you for your suggestion, but I cannot use this connector, because we don't have a license for Adobe Sign.
