  8. Select ‘Enforce Sequence Workflow’ if needed. When you enable sequence based workflow, you will be able to set the workflow path in series combined with parallel by numbering each signer sequence accordingly. If the serial number against the recipient names are the same, they will get notified at the same time and can sign the documents in parallel.
