Foxit eSign aka eSign Genie will allow the user to copy template’s fields on a new document by setting their own rules. According to the rule definition, the system will automatically copy the template field on any newly uploaded form.
Many times companies get prefilled document(s) from other persons or systems that just need some additional fields to be filled out before signing by the end-user. Document preparer can upload the document and apply the template (based on rules like matching file name or file name contains specific words). This functionality was available to our API users however, we are enabling it via the User Interface (UI) now. A common example is in real-estate where is buyer agent gets prefilled/presigned forms from a Seller agent or attorney and needs to complete the remaining part from the buyer side quickly by applying the template fields to prefilled documents.
This feature will benefit all companies and users who use reusable templates and documents. We are making documents uploading more user-friendly than ever before.
