Use Conga Sign Signature Tags with PDF Files

Add Conga Sign tags to a PDF file for use with Conga Sign and Conga Sign-integrated Composer solutions. This method allows users to utilize pre-tagged PDF files as Conga Sign documents or Conga Composer Templates.

  Both Conga Composer merge fields and Conga Sign automatic anchor tags populate when the template is sent for signature using this method. These instructions are specific to Adobe Acrobat X Standard. 

To add Conga Sign signature tags to a PDF template (using Adobe Acrobat X Standard):

  1. Create a PDF file or open an existing PDF file.
    • (Optional) Add Composer merge fields to the PDF document.
  2. Open the PDF file in Adobe Acrobat, click Tools, and then click Edit.
  3. Click Add Text and select an area in the PDF template to place a Conga Sign tag. 
  4. Add a Conga Sign tag's tagging syntax to the text field.
  5. (Optional) Repeat Steps 3 and 4 to additional Conga Sign tags. 
  6. Save the PDF template.
