SAVE TREES AND SAVE TIME
Last night I received a message from my 21 year old sister asking if she could come over and use my printer/scanner.
I messaged her back “Yes, what do you need it for?”
She had received a new agreement from work, and had to email the signed agreement back that night.
“Do you have a printed version of this agreement?” I ask her
She responded “No, I have a soft copy on email. I need to print, sign, scan, and email it back“.
Amused, I invited her over “See you at 7pm“.
THE MILLENIAL ARRIVES.
My sister arrives with her Macbook Air in tow, ready to print off her agreement.
“You’re getting a tech lesson” I told her.
I grab a piece of blank paper, and asked her to sign her name.
1. I opened up the PDF agreement (On Apple Macs, the default program to view PDF documents is Preview program).
2. I click on Tools (Top Menu)3. Choose Annotate
4. Choose Signature
5. Choose Manage Signature
6. Choose Create Signature7. Choose Camera, and hold that piece of paper which my sister signed her name on, until an imprint of her signature appears on the screen
8. Click Done
|This pops your signature onto the PDF Document, where you can move the signature to the location where you need to sign.
You can also add text so you can write your name, and the date
SEND IT OFF!
To email the agreement off, click on the Share icon, choose Mail, and voila!
The signed agreement shall be emailed off…. all this done without printing or scanning!
The Millennial looked at me in amazement…
SEE…. Even millenials can learn a thing or two when it comes to technology! =P
