In-Person Signing allows a signer that is physically present for signature or someone who may not have an e-mail address to electronically sign a document. An Administrator with an Foxit eSign aka eSign Genie account will need to facilitate the in-person signing and assist the signer. This will allow you to create legally binding, electronically signed documents without having to hassle with using an e-mail address if it not required or available to use. Listed below are the steps explaining how to create a document with the in-person signing feature enabled as well as a video.

For in-person signer email address is not required.
6. Once the in-person signing administrator clicks on the “View Document”, he will be redirected to the In Person Signing Administration Session where the user will have two options: 1) give control to the in-person signer and 2) continue as an in-person administrator.
