How to send documents for eSignature
Organizations and remote workers often go through many manual paper-based steps to get a signature from clients, partners, and other associates on agreements and contracts. This way, the signer receives, prints, and signs the document. They then scan or photographs it, create a PDF, and email it back. But there’s a better, faster way. Try signNow, a trusted eSignature solution for creating, signing, sharing, and collecting eSigned documents remotely. Embedding eSignatures into your workflow with signNow is easy. We’ve put together some questions to help you manage your eSignature business processes more efficiently.
How to set an expiration date for a document
By setting an expiration date and adding reminders, you can make sure your document is signed on time. The Advanced Options feature allows you to set a document expiration date and extend it if necessary (the default expiration date is 30 days). When adding signers, go to Advanced Options and specify the desired period (up to 180 days). Use eSignature capabilities on your own terms, wherever and whenever you need.
Can I send a reminder to sign a document in signNow?
Using signNow’s advanced features, you can set a reminder so that your recipient never forgets to sign the document you sent them. After editing the form, when it’s time to add signers, click Advanced Options. You need the Set Reminders section. Specify the number of days you want the recipient to receive the reminder in their email. Note that automatic reminders, real-time updates, and notifications mean that you can easily control and monitor how your documents are signed.
How to send a Bulk Invite
signNow’s Bulk Invite feature automates the sending of contracts and forms to many people at the same time. First, you need an Excel spreadsheet with a list of signer emails saved in SVC format. Find the bulk send feature in the More menu. All listed contacts will receive a unique link to sign the document. No need to enter multiple emails manually.
What is a shared Signature Link?
A signNow Signing Link is a generated link that you can copy and share (email, direct messages, blogs, websites, etc.) with any number of signers. Recipients click the link to open the document on any device and sign it in a couple of clicks. Signed copies will appear in your account. You’ll also receive an email notification.
How to set multiple recipients
If you need to share a document, such as a questionnaire or a survey, with many recipients, you can use signNow. First, you need to create a document template. Then, select the template you created, click the Create Signing Link button on the template itself, or go to the More menu.
