Signing a draft document

SigningHub lets you sign your personal documents in "Draft" status, even without initiating the workflow. In this way you can optimise your workflow usage and save the available workflow quota (as per your service plan) for other important approvals.

To sign a draft document,
  1. Click the "Home" option from the top menu.
  2. Add a document to sign. The document will be listed in the main grid with "Draft" status.
  3. Open the document to prepare.
  4. Add yourself as a signer.
  5. Click the signature field (on the document with your name). 
    • Select one of the options Draw, Text or Upload for the type of visible signature you wish to apply.
    • Specify your account password. Based on your signature settings, the password configurations may change. For details, see Client Side (Local) Signing,Server Side Signing, and Server Side Signing with OTP.
    • You can optionally specify Signing Reason, Contact Information and Location also, if specified they will become the permanent part of the PDF signature.
    • Once done click the "Sign Now" button. Your personal document is now digitally signed. However, the status of document will still be "Draft", so you can share it with other contacts when required.

1. ‚ÄčThe signature appearances are managed from SigningHub Admin interface, where customized appearances can also be defined based on your business/ organizational preferences.
2. Whenever a document is digitally signed by a signer, the digital signatures quota of respective document owner's account is consumed, and hence the available count is decreased by one.
