- Recipient / reader details
- When applicable, details showing when your document was Printed out (on paper) or Saved (a copy made to disk)
- Details on whether or not it was forwarded (and where possible; to whom)
- Which pages of your PDF were read
- Length of time read
- How many times it was opened and re-opened (with optional instant notifications each time)

- Attach your PDF to an email just as you usually would then send your email with tracking.
