Using the "Bulk Sign" option

SigningHub provides an efficient, fast and easy way to sign a pile of documents in one go. In this regard, you can use the "Bulk Sign" feature to sign your (multiple) documents (in the "Pending" status) through a single click operation. However, SigningHub does not show those (pending) documents in your bulk signing list, which have:
  • Digital/ Electronic Signature with unprocessed Initials fields, or 
  • Digital/ Electronic Signature with unprocessed In-person fields, or
  • Digital/ Electronic Signature with mandatory assigned form fields, or
  • Workflow initiated with any Reviewer or Editor, or 
  • Electronic Signature with OTP.
