Approval Stamp on PDF Documents

We are starting to use the Wrike approval process to  streamline our workflow for internal documents such as Engineering change requests. The problem we are running into is we do not have a way through Wrike to put an approval stamp on the PDF for when the document gets printed out. It would be a nice feature if you could customize a stamp by workflow that is automatically applied in a specific location on the form when the file is approved.

Great idea. Something along the lines of a faded 'watermark' type would be ideal.  Even something the printed the title of the document at the very bottom to help identify which version it is prior to becoming the final/approved version.

This would be a great help for Wrike users in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction space. While it seems that Wrike (and most similar tools) focus on use cases in marketing and app development, we have found that Wrike is well suited to AEC needs and I'd encourage you to support that sector.

This is really needed.  It defeats the purpose to "Approve" a document within Wrike, only to have that "Approval" lost when it leaves Wrike.  The PrePress departments don't pull an approved doc from Wrike.  We need this badly.  We download the file and apply an Approval stamp with Adobe but then have to upload the file back into Wrike.  We can export with Approval Comment but this really doesn't display "Approved".  Anyone have any workarounds you can share?

I agree on this as this is a feature that would be helpful also in the media buying process. We have contracts that we need to approve and the digital timestamp/signature would save in the process of having to download and reuploading. I would ask that it be applied to ANY type of document not just PDF as sometimes we have Excel sheets for media expenditures.

Our agency needs to have the details in the document shown with a signature for their records but Wrike Bot only shows "Approved" without a reference to what was approved. Even looking at the approval history - it does show the document title but nothing related to the details inside - there can be multiple versions. Similarly printing the project thread does not reference the document that was approved. Patty Perez we currently are doing the same thing as you with Adobe.
