Set up dynamic document naming via the API

Establish a naming formula to be applied upon document completion. Let’s say your document contains fillable fields for a date and a recipient's full name. Simply create a general name for the document, e.g., “Contract”, and configure the API to display the values of the full name and date fields in a completed document’s name. Once your recipient submits the document, its name will appear as in the example: “Contract John Smith 2023/01/21”.

The BEST Decision We Made
Laura Hardin

What do you like best?

We were previously using an all-paper hiring and on-boarding method. We switched all those documents over to Sign Now, and our whole process is so much easier and smoother. We have 7 terminals in 3 states so being all-paper was cumbersome and, frankly, silly. We've removed so much of the burden from our terminal managers so they can do what they do: manage the business.

Easy to use, increases productivity
Erin Jones

What do you like best?

I love that I can complete signatures and documents from the phone app in addition to using my desktop. As a busy administrator, this speeds up productivity . I find the interface very easy and clear, a big win for our office. We have improved engagement with our families , and increased dramatically the amount of crucial signatures needed for our program. I have not heard any complaints that the interface is difficult or confusing, instead have heard feedback that it is easy to use. Most importantly is the ability to sign on mobile phone, this has been a game changer for us.
