Generate a signing link

Click Create Invite Link next to the document or template you intend to share.

fill-guide-illustration

Your signing link appears in the pop-up window. Copy it and share it via any available communication channel. You can also share a QR code instead of a link by clicking Download QR code.

Use the checkboxes below the signing link to set the parameters for your signature invite.

Please note that a signing link created for a regular document (non-template) can only be signed once by a predefined number of recipients. To allow any number of signers to complete their own copies of a document as long as the link is active, click Convert Into Template in the pop-up.

The person who follows your link will open your document in a browser tab where they can sign it online in seconds. All signed documents appear in your Documents folder.

How do you generate a document and apply an electronic signature to it?

The easiest way is to use signNow. The platform allows you to upload a document and apply your eSignature to it in just a couple of clicks. Select the My Signature element from the left-hand toolbar and drag and drop where you want/need it. Confirm its placement by clicking OK. Once it’s placed, create a unique eSignature by drawing one, typing your full name, or uploading a picture of your handwritten one. You can also send a sample for signing to recipients and have the ability to apply more than just your legally-binding electronic signature.

How do I add an electronic signature to a Word document?

You can add electronic signatures to a Word document using the Drawing tool. According to US law, every eSignature you add in Word is recognized as an official electronic signature. Still, this method won't be suitable for many industries that include sensitive data or complex signature workflows. To keep your documents secure and avoid possible problems, consider uploading a Word document for signing to signNow and use its tools for a much more secure and trustworthy signing experience.

How do I paste an electronic signature?

Applying an electronic signature several times is a very straightforward and simple process if you’re using the right solution. After creating a signNow account, upload a document, and make your eSignature: draw it, type it, or upload a picture of it. Create more than one electronic signature if you want. With signNow, you can save up to three examples and insert them any time you need to. Add the My Signature element, select one of your electronic signature templates, drag and drop the element where it needs to be, and confirm its placement by clicking OK. Now, simply export the file as a PDF or send it to recipients for signing right from your signNow account to their emails.
