Date Stamping in Adobe

Auto Date Stamp Function in Adobe Pro

This function is ONLY available in Adobe Pro (paid version) which the unit has 2 licenses for. One is on the unit’s laptop and the other on the SST’s PC. This will work to combine Word, Excel, Power Point, JPG, PNG, GIF or just about any file type we normally see.

  1. Get an email that has attachments
  2. Save the attachments to the network in the G:Provider Certification & ComplianceAuto Date Stamping in your folder (everyone should have one)
  3. Navigate out to the folder on the network while on the laptop

  1. You will likely see this dialog box simply save the binder in the folder you you’re your originals in as follows.
  2. You will now have the option of replacing the footer or adding a new footer. Depending on the document you have either will work. Replacing will eliminate the current footer and simply have out date stamp on bottom. Adding a new one runs the risk of having multiple layers of text one on top of another.
