How to add tracking your PDF's and Documents

  Tracking your Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files

Your PDF's can automatically be tracked by simply attaching them to your tracked email:

  • Note that the tracking in PDF's is not currently guaranteed to be invisible. Due to changes to Adobe, some recipients may receive a warning message about the PDF containing tracking or unknown content.
  • Turn on PDF tracking from within your ReadNotify account (at My Account -> Default Settings)
  • Attach your PDF to your email just as you usually would then send your email with tracking.
  • The tracking will be automatically placed in both your email and the PDF. The tracking is unique to each item; which means your PDF's will still track if removed from the email.
  • log in to your Personal Tracking Page to view the full status of your tracked emails and PDF's. You will also receive ReadNotifications via email when they have been opened.
