Prepare Document Modal (Quick Sign)

Preparing a document involves adding fields on the document and defining their attributes. You can prepare a document by either:

  • auto scanning fields and manually customizing it, if required.
  • manually adding fields to a document.

Note: Our templates will have the fields already prepared. You can customize it as required.

After you have completed setting up Send and Sign in the Fill or Sign modal and click Continue, the Prepare Document modal displays. The right panel displays the Roles and Form Fields on the document assigned to a role.
