Delegating your signing authority

SigningHub provides the delegate signing facility through which you can assign your signing authority to a trusted person (your contact) in your absence. If enabled, when a document is sent to you for signing, a copy of the document will be automatically forwarded to your delegated signer as well.

The delegated signer can then sign the document on your behalf by using his/ her own private key. The signature field will show the delegate signer name, however, the signature verification dialog will show your (the actual signer's) name along with a "Delegate" caption.
To delegate the signing authority,
  1. Click the "Settings" option from the top menu.
  2. Click the "Delegate Signing" option from the right menu.
  3. Tick the "Allow someone else to sign on your behalf" check box to enable it.
  4. Specify the contact to whom you want to delegate the signing authority.
  5. Specify the time period by using the "From" and "To" fields. The delegate signing will be ineffective beyond the specified time period.
  6. Click the "Save" button.
