How to Decline to Sign?

With SignNow you can send out documents for signing faster. Recipients have the option to sign or refuse signing a document by selecting Decline To Sign. A recipient can also change their mind after declining - if a needed change has been agreed upon - and return to sign the document later.

When a recipient opens your document, the yellow arrow will help them find the field you’ve assigned for their signature:

However, in the dropdown menu of the Options button, a recipient may also choose the Decline To Sign option:

Once a recipient clicks the OK button, confirming their Decline To Sign, you will receive an email informing you of the decline and the recipient’s reason:

Further edits or changes can be made to the document. After 24 hours, your recipient will receive an email reminder informing them that they can still sign the document.
