Jotform Sign is our new automated solution to collect legally binding signatures. Now you can use the signing order feature to automate your workflows and effortlessly move through signature collecting processes. Jotform Sign will relieve you of the time and effort it takes to collect wet signatures. Let’s check out how it works:
Create a Signable Document from the Form Builder
- Click the orange Create a Form button on the left side of the Form Builder.
- Click the form layout that says Create Signable Documents.
Create a Signable Document From the Main Menu
- Open the main menu and click My Documents.
- Then, click the green create sign document button on the left side of the screen.
- You will be prompted to upload a document. You can either drag and drop a document from your computer, or click Upload Document to open your file explorer and upload a document. Additionally, you can click Try Demo Document if you want to try it out before you start uploading your own documents.
- Once you upload your document, a banner will come up asking if you would like signing fields to be detected automatically. Essentially, Jotform will scan the document and identify any possible fields that may need a signature.
- After detecting fields, use the add fields menu on the left side of the screen to add different fields to your document. Much like the rest of Jotform’s products, all you have to do to add elements is drag and drop them into the Sign Builder.
- If you want to add multiple signers to your document, click the blue button underneath the signature element, and click the button that says Add a new role.
Toggle the switch on the right side of the Sign Builder to preview your document and make sure it looks good before assigning it.
You can also change your signature font in preview mode too, just click the signature field and click Change Style.
Assign Documents to Signers
Once you designate where you want your users to sign, move into the Send tab to assign your document. You also have the option to create an access code for your signers, and send a message along with your invite to sign. Each signer will receive a unique URL that will expire after 7 days.
- Click the blue + button in the middle of the screen.
- Write the full names and emails of your signers in the appropriate fields.
- Click the key icon to create an access code and click the speech bubble to write a message to your signers.
In the options tab, you’ll be able to send reminder emails, set expiration dates, allow signers to delegate to other signers, and add CC recipients.
We realized it’s important for users to easily see where their documents are in the workflow process. This will help identify bottlenecks, who to follow up with, and make sure signatures are complete. Tracking features are located within the Send tab, where you will see a list of your sent signable documents.
To assign your document as part of a workflow, you can toggle the signing order on and off. The signing order function lets you decide who gets to sign your document first.
Once the workflow is complete, everyone involved will receive a confirmation email with an audit trail. The audit trail is essentially an at-a-glance record of who signed your document and when. The audit trail will be incredibly helpful in tracking workflows and making sure all of the appropriate parties have signed your document. You’ll also be able to view the audit trail in Sign Inbox at any time.
Is there a way to set a limit on Signed Form submissions, like you can within your Form settings?
Recipient receives email from "Jotform" and is reluctant to click on any links for possible phishing. Anyway to change the sender's email instead of it saying "Jotform?" Can I change it to my company name?
this looks good, but what about reading e-mail addresses & names from a table to avoid typing into the form.
what we need to do at alesi for this training is to have multiple students sign a SINGLE document, a 'sign-in' sheet.
does jotform sign support this?
