Get Adobe PDF experience in Microsoft Teams

Now you can set Adobe Acrobat as the default app to view and edit PDF files in  Microsoft Teams. Once done, all PDF files from the chat, channel, and files app will open directly in the Acrobat app within Teams.

Your end-users don’t need an Adobe Acrobat subscription or an Adobe ID to view, search, comment and annotate PDF files. However, to Create, Organize, Combine, or Export a PDF, the tenant users will need an Adobe Acrobat subscription.

Admins can set the Acrobat app as the default PDF viewer in Teams by following the below 2 steps.

  1. Setup the Acrobat app to work in the tenant:
    1. Log in to Teams admin center.
    2. In the left panel, go to Teams app > Manage apps.
    3. Search for the Acrobat app, then click the app to go to the app details page.
    4. All apps are by default allowed; hence, no action is needed. If a preexisting admin setting, an app permission policy, or an org-wide app setting has blocked the app, make sure the app is allowed.
    5. On the Permissions tab, select Review permission requested by the app, then click Accept to grant consent. To know more about app consent, click here.
  2. Make the Acrobat app available on users’ Teams client
    1. Log in to Teams admin center.
    2. In the left panel, go to Teams app > Setup policies.
    3. Select Global (Org-wide default) and then select Edit.
    4. Under Installed apps, select Add apps.
    5. Search for Acrobat app, add it, and save the policy.
    6. If you want to selectively allow the Adobe Acrobat app for a few specific individuals or for a group, you can assign a custom app permission policy.
