Fill, annotate and collaborate on PDFs in real-time with your colleagues and clients using Lumin's tagging and commenting tools.

We recommend uploading documents to your 'Organization' or 'Team' space as it this will give members access to the documents automatically

Note: To tag your teammate, type @ and then their name and hit 'comment'. Your tagged teammate will then receive a notification email alerting them to the comment and prompting them to respond.

You don't just have to communicate with 'comment's on your document, you can add text and draw on the document- colleagues will be able to see changes made in real-time.
