Signing the in-persons fields before signing

In person signatures are very much similar to the initials, but they are done on behalf of someone else. In-person signatures can also be carried out by hand drawing, text filling or image upload (the same as when signing a field). They can also be used as witness digital signatures, if they are generated by using a witness certificate. When you receive a document with in-person fields, then you need to first fill in all these fields. This is to witness that document was signed in the presence of configured persons or on the behalf of all of them. Once you are done, you can sign the document.

To sign an in-person signature,
  1. Click the "Home" option from the top menu.
  2. Open the pending document to sign.



  3. Click the yellow highlighted "Start Navigation" caption and the system will take you to the first in-person field.
  4. The in-person fields associated with you will be highlighted in orange color along with their respective signer name. Click the field to sign it.



  5. The "Fill In-Person Field" provision will appear in the secondary right menu. Select the signature type (Text/ Draw/ Upload) to sign the field accordingly, and click the "Sign Now" button. 



  6. The "Fill In-Person Field" provision will disappear and the specified in-person signature (witness digital signature) will be displayed on the document at the same area.
  7. Click the yellow highlighted "Next Sign" caption to move to the next in-person signature field associated with you. 
  8. Repeat the step 7 till the yellow highlighted "Next Sign" caption takes you to your actual signature field. The system wont let you sign unless you sign all your in-person signature fields. Also you cannot sign the in-person fields which have been assigned to someone else.
  9. Once you are done with in-persons, proceed to sign the document.

In-person Signature with OTP:
If the document owner has configured the OTP security with your in-person signature field, then an OTP will be sent on your mobile when you click the field to sign. In case of OTP, proceed as follows:
  1. When you click the in-person signature field from the document, the "Fill In-Person Field" provision will appear in the secondary right menu. Select the signature type (Text/ Draw/ Upload) to sign the field accordingly, and click the "Next" button.
    An OTP will be generated and sent on your mobile device.




  2. Specify the OTP in the given field, and click the "Sign Now" button. The "Fill In-Person Field" provision will disappear and the specified in-person signature will be displayed on the document at the same area.
    Please contact the respective document owner to change your mobile number, if your mobile number is incorrect on the OTP dialog.
