How does kiosk mode work on an iPad?

First and Foremost

Kiosk Mode can only be used with templates, so you’ll have to make sure that whatever document you want to use has been made into one. If you have a free trial on the web, download the SignNow app on an iPad, login with the same account, and start Kiosk mode with a template.

Making a Template From An Existing Document

Step 1 – Navigate to Your Documents Folder

Step 2 – Tap On the Document and Select “Template”

Step 3 – Name Your Template

This will be prepended to all the individual documents that are created from it.

Entering Kiosk Mode

Step 1 – Tap on the Template and Select “Kiosk Mode”

Step 2 – Enter a Passcode for Kiosk Mode

This will be used to exit kiosk mode.

Step 3 – Re-enter the Passcode

Just to make sure there are no typos.

Step 4 – Configure Kiosk Mode with Custom Messaging

You can edit all of the messaging to suit your particular needs.

Optional Review Step

This allows you to review the client’s information after they tap Done but before it is finally saved.

Filling Out a Document With Kiosk Mode

Step 1 – Read Welcome Message and Click OK

Again, this text can be customized to say whatever you need it to.

What You See When You Click “How to Sign”

There are three slides that give signers some instructions on how to use to sign.

Step 2 – Fill in the Document and Tap on the Checkmark

Using fields makes it considerably easier for signers and reduces the likelihood of errors while filling out. Learn more about Fields.

Review Step, If Enabled

This is where the Review Step would pop up, rather than the “Are you done signing?”

Step 3 – The “Done” Message Appears

And this, too, can be customized to your liking from the initial settings screen. Once the signer has filled out the document and you click ok, a new document will appear for the next signer.

Exiting Kiosk Mode

Step 1 – Tap the X in the Top Left Corner and Select “Exit Kiosk Mode”

There is also the option to Erase and Restart, which presents the signer with a completely blank form.

Step 2 – Enter the Passcode

This ensures that nobody but those authorized are able to exit Kiosk Mode and access other parts of the app.

Reviewing Documents Created From Kiosk Mode Templates

Step 1 – Navigate to the Documents Folder

Each document created from a template that was used with Kiosk Mode will use the template name with the completion date and time appended to the end.

Step 2 – Review the Actual Document

All of the information that the client entered (in our case, Sonya Chur) is intact.

SignNow. It's as easy as 1-2-3.

Besides making my signature look better than normal, the app was easy to use and intuitive.
