Ability to Batch Certify & Sign Multiple Documents at once
My business requires signature of multiple documents in various places and I'm required to sign hundreds of these documents near deadlines that occur throughout the year. Having the ability to open multiple documents at once to then quickly click to certify AND sign ALL signature fields placed in ALL open documents with only a few clicks would eliminate a lot of time I currently spend having to click through each signature field of each document.
While a batch signature functionality exists, the true efficiency of batch signing does not exist in the current Adobe functionality. Having to manually click through each signature field and the various steps associated to certify/sign for EACH field placed within the documents results in no time saved from doing each document individually. The number of clicks is the same. It would be nice to go through the signature prompts once and the batch signature functionality sign ALL open documents in all signature fields within those documents.
An example of the desired functionality that truly captures 'batch signature' and creates meaningful efficiency in the signature process can be found at the below link.
Example of Bluebeam functionality:

Please add this feature as it is critical to my team's work efficiencies. Thank you!
Adobe, please create this functionality. For someone who will be signing over 1,000 state and local tax returns, this will be extremely inefficient. Bluebeam had this feature and it took seconds to sign returns.
This feature is imperative in SALT practice given the volume of returns given the flow of information and reporting required, especially for tiered partnerships. Often times each of these tax returns will require multiple signatures ie. efile authorization, multiple pages in signature boxes, etc.
This function is extremely helpful when signing multiple documents at one and the current process is too slow.

This feature is very important for someone who signs tax returns with multiple pages that needs to be signed on several returns.
Agree. I used Bluebeam as well and the batch signature option was huge. Provided the signature boxes were already in place (often applied by the documents originator or administrative professional) I was able apply signature and certify all documents saved within a specific folder. Even better, I had the option to select a folder and all of its subfolders as well which helped keep large volumes of files organized more easily but still a single click for me.
