eSignature Process FAQs
How do the recipients complete documents and eSign?
Recipients receive a link in the invitation email. Clicking on the link takes them directly into the document if login is not required. If login is required, the recipient creates a login/password for their non-paid account. On the left panel, click on the ‘Orange’ next sign takes the user to the field to be filled out on the document.
Recipient/signer completes the fields to be filled out and signs the document. Upon eSigning completion, a popup message requests acceptance from the signer indicating that eSignature is completely legal and signer accepts the validity of signatures as equivalent to the paper signatures.
Acceptance completes the process for that signer and displays the message if the document is fully signed or still awaiting other signatures.
