About one year ago, Adobe and Microsoft have officially announced a strategic partnership around Adobe’s Marketing Cloud and Microsoft’s Azure cloud. Well, today the two companies have announced a major expansion of this partnership that sees them collaborating around team communications and e-signatures.
In other words, Adobe Sign will now become Microsoft’s preferred e-signature solution and it will be integrated into Office 365 and Dynamics 365, while Microsoft Teams will become the preferred collaboration service for Adobe Document Cloud, Experience Cloud and Creative Cloud.
Adobe Sign will also integrate with Microsoft Flow, allowing users to build end-to-end digital workflows by adding Adobe Sign to any Microsoft Flow process. In the following months, there will also be other organizations that will benefit from the Flow integration with other Microsoft applications such as OneDrive, Dynamics or SharePoint.
Adobe Sign will integrate with Microsoft Teams, which will help to accelerate electronic agreement creation, approval and signature processes across teams. The Adobe Sign application in Microsoft Teams will include a tab to send documents for signature and a bot that allows team members to manage and track documents.
Adobe Photoshop CC To Receive A New Feature
Adobe is also preparing a new feature that will be added soon to its Photoshop CC application. The new Curvature Pen Tool allows you to easily shape your drawings. By using this tool you will be able to create curved shapes by clicking once or double-click to get a corner point. After drawing, you will be able to move the points, toggle between smooth and corner options, or even delete them without having to change tools.
