Document Actions:

  • Quick Sign Document – Opens the Fill or Sign modal where you can choose to sign the document yourself or send it to participants for signing. See Quick Sign for more information.
    • If no fields were placed on the document before sending for signing, a custom signature page will be added to the end of the document with signature and date fields for the specified number of signers.
    • If you decide to add/modify roles and form fields on the document now, use the Manage Roles and Fields option before sending your document for signing.
  • Bulk Start Quick Signs – Opens the Bulk Start Quick Signs modal where you upload a CSV file. You can bulk start up to 250 quick sign instances so your CSV file can have a maximum of 250 rows. Click Bulk Start Quick Signs to initiate the process.
    Note: Click Click here to download a sample to download a sample CSV file. The first row of the CSV file represents the name of all roles on the document. Each row after this header row represents a QS instance containing the email address of each of the recipients for each role.
    You can turn on the following using the toggles:

    • Set Signing Order – When turned on, emails are sent to each signer sequentially. When turned off, emails are sent to all signers simultaneously.
    • Cancel bulk started process on failure – When turned on, it lists failed processes and provides a Download Report button to download the report of failed processes. You can then restart the failed processes.
  • Edit – This action requires Admin privileges and is only available if your document is a DOCX file (a Microsoft Word document). It opens the document in collaboration mode where you can make edits or suggestions. Anyone in your workspace with admin permissions can collaborate on DOCX files in real time in your library. You get the most recent document available anytime you access it while keeping management in one platform.
    Note: If your document is in the older .doc file format, first convert it to .docx before uploading it.
  • Manage Roles and Fields – This action requires Admin privileges. Opens the document and allows you to add/modify the roles and form fields. The right section displays the roles and their assigned form fields that they will have to fill.
    • In the right bar under Roles, click the Manage Roles button to open the Manage Roles modal, where you can add more roles or edit existing ones.
    • Add fillable fields to the document using the fields list on the top row below the document header. The fillable fields available are: Signature, Initials, Date, Textbox, Checkbox, Radio Group, and Request File.
    • In the right section under Form Fields, you can edit the form fields’ settings to suit your input requirements.
    • Only signees associated with a particular role will be able to fill these fields. This feature was created with reusability in mind. Email addresses for these roles can only be provided when sending them for signatures, making the document useful for multiple occasions.
      Note: Each role has a color code, and the fields assigned to each role have the same color. This helps distinguish which field is tied to which role.
  • Stamp Document – This action requires Admin privileges. Opens the document and allows you to apply stamps on it. You can enter content in the stamps that you placed on the document using the following as guidelines:
    1. Enter your data in the stamps and save it by clicking Make Changes Permanent at the upper-right corner.
    2. You are prompted with a message that the changes will be permanent and cannot be edited. Click Stamp Document to confirm or click Cancel to reject.

  • Download – Downloads the document to your computer.
  • Download as PDF – This action is available if your document is a DOCX file (a Microsoft Word document). Downloads a PDF of the document to your computer.
