I received a fax this morning of a form that needed my signature on it. I get my faxes by email, so when I open up the file it opens in Microsoft Office Document Imaging.
I just click on the pen icon as shown in this screen capture, then I sign the document, save it and send it back by email. Done!
There are a couple of productivity advantages for this tip:
- It’s the fastest way to sign and return a from
- You don’t need to print it – saves power, saves paper – is environmentally friendly
- You don’t need to walk to the fax (or in my case, drag out the phone cord, run it five meters and connect up the dusty old fax machine).
