The signer’s invitation link will expire after one week by default if you don’t set an expiration date. But you can resend the invitation by going to Sign Inbox and clicking the Resend button on an expired invitation.

  1. After you designate your signers and add the appropriate places for them to sign, move to the Send tab.
