Consolidated Signing

This page contains a basic overview of the Consolidated Signing feature for eSignatures.

Note

To use Consolidated Signing, the feature must be enabled in your account settings. Admins or higher roles have the ability to enable Consolidated Signing.

Get Started

The sending process for Consolidated Signing is identical to the standard sending process for eSignatures, save for one critical difference. To send a folder with Consolidated Signing, you must click Yes under Use Consolidated Signing when you are entering the email addresses for your participants. Then, complete the workflow as normal.

Consolidated Signing Experience

Your participants will receive an email inviting them to sign the documents you've sent to them, similar to the typical eSignatures signer experience.

From there, they'll be greeted with a window that explains the signing process. From there, they can click Continue to start the signature process.

They can click Place Signature to apply the signature to the document. From there, they can scroll to each of the next signature documents they are expected to sign, and apply their signature with just one click on each signature field. When they have completed the signatures on the final document, they can press Finish to finalize their signatures.

Caution

The signature process is final and irreversible once Finish is clicked. Advise your participants to ensure they are satisfied with the signature documents and their contents before clicking Finish.

Your participants will then be greeted with a screen confirming the completion of the signature process. They can then close the browser window.
