How to make optional fields to fill out in signNow

It’s not always necessary for users to fill out all the fields in your document. signNow allows you to add optional or required fields to your forms, depending on your needs. Once you drop the field into the document, go to the right-side toolbar and uncheck Required to let your signers skip it.

How to sign and save Word documents without printing them

Most agreements and reports are first created in MS Word because it’s a perfect file format for working with texts. But Word doesn’t provide a tool for eSigning documents in a way that makes them enforceable in court. Even if you try to create your signature with the drawing tool, it won’t be considered a legally-valid signature. You’ll need to print the document first, sign it, and then scan it back into your computer. That’s time-consuming. To streamline the process, take advantage of signNow, a go-to eSignature solution. Upload a Word file, edit it, and add a legally-binding eSignature. You can either type your name, draw your name, or upload an image of your handwritten signature. No matter which you choose, it’ll be saved in your signNow account. Bear in mind, signNow automatically converts all files into PDF format.
