In business world, you have to exchange documents repeatedly with your partners and workmates, right? And during the process, you should denote the status of the PDF documents by marking the PDF documents every time? This is a formula you need to go through. And sometimes you even need to point out where to sign the PDF. To make it easier for others to know what's going on with the PDF documents, contracts, projects, receipts, etc, the easiest way is adding dynamic stamps to the PDF files. Adobe Acrobat offers the option of adding dynamic stamps to PDF documents. Here are the steps to add stamps to PDF via Acrobat X Pro.

Step 1. Open PDF. Go to the File menu, find and open the PDF file you desired to add stamps from your local hard drive.

Step 2. Select Stamp tool. Navigate to the PDF page you need to add stamps and then click the Comment Menu on the top right of the main interface. In the Annotation panel, click the Add Stamp tool to reveal the pop-up menu. Select Dynamic, Sign Here or Standard Business. And under the submenu, select the appropriate stamp, say, REVISED, REVIEWED, APPROVED, CONFIDENTIAL, etc.

So here, before enter your information, you should consider what information is needed. To edit identity, open the identity dialogue box by going to Edit > Preferences and select the Identity category on the left.
