Users can see the signature certificate at the end of each document PDF if they have selected “YES” for ‘Attaching the certificate to document PDF’s’.
8. Default Signature Option:
Users may select the default signature option for the signer and once they are ready to sign it will display the selected option i.e. from “Type”, “Draw” or “Upload”. If you want to restrict the recipient to sign using ONLY the default option selected, select ‘Yes’ for ‘View Only Default Sign Option’.
9. Select Fonts for the Typed Signature:
If you selected the option to “Type”, you can further restrict the signature option and use only allowed fonts types.
10. Send PDF with Completion Notification:
In order to send the PDF attached in the e-mail notification once the document is executed to the signer party and the sender then we need to select “Send PDF with Completion Notification” as yes else no.
11. Default Fields Navigation:
While signing documents, the recipient fills out the values for the fields assigned to him/her. Selecting the ‘All’ option will make the recipient tab across each field on the document before signing whereas the ‘Only Mandatory’ option will bypass the optional fields while tabbing through.
12. Display Indicators in Document Draft Mode:
If the fields on the documents are too close to each other, the fillable field name indicators may overlap with the next fillable field(s). Selecting ‘No’ will turn off the recipient name indicator on the document under draft status. This option can be changed on the draft document by simply selecting the ‘Display Recipient’ from the ‘More Actions’ menu on the top right corner.
