Select your options:

Delivery Method

Currently only Email is supported. This will cause the document to be sent via email to the selected signer.

Due Date

You can optionally specify when the document needs to be signed. Once the due date passes the signer will no longer be able to add their signature.

Signers

Lastly, pick someone to sign, you can choose:

  • The carer or client (document owner).
  • A contact of the carer/client; selected from their important contacts
  • Someone else - Provide the name, email address and relationship to the document holder

All three options give you the opportunity to update the email address the document is being sent to.

Signing the document

The person requested to sign the document will receive an email asking them to review the document and sign it. They will need to click the link in the email, where they will see a message telling them what document they have been sent and which person sent it.

Once they click continue, they will be taken to the document, allowing them to read it before they sign it. They will also be able to reject the document if they do not wish to sign it.

The signee will be unable to sign until they have read the full document.

When ready to sign, click Add your signature and fill in the following form.

They will need to tick the box to confirm it being a legal representation of their signature before clicking finish.

Viewing the signature
