Use this job aid to convert a document to the Portable Document Format (PDF) format. The PDF format option allows you to preserve the original formatting of your document without the risk of data in the file being easily changed or altered.
If you are using Microsoft Office 2007 programs you will need to download the Save as PDF add-in first, to be able to convert documents to PDF. Refer to the section below to learn how to download and install the Save as PDF add-in. If you have already downloaded and installed the add-in or are using Microsoft Office 2010 refer to the Convert a Document to PDF Process Steps.
A document is converted to the Portable Document Format (PDF) and can now be added to CCMS through email, fax, or on the Upload Documents page.
To convert screenshots of different systems (i.e. KIDS, ACID, etc) to PDF, simply paste screenshots to a Word Document and follow the steps above.
