How to Send a Document for Online Signature?

To send a document for online signing, please follow the next steps:

Only documents containing a valid digital signature field can be sent for signing. If such a field is not present in the form, you won’t be able to email the document for signature, and you’ll see the error message: ‘There is no signature field in this document, hence the recipient won’t be able to sign it and return to you afterward.’

In case a signer has only to sign a document and is not expected to make any changes, choose Sign Only to restrict editing of the document. If you want the signer to fill out other fields:

After the document is dispatched, you will see a new tab, Sent for Signature, where a copy of the sent file is stored:

A signer will receive the following email about a document that needs to be signed:

Once the signer clicks Open and Sign, the document is opened in the browser on any device. To sign a document, the signer will need to type the name in the signature field. From there, the signer has 3 choices under ActionsSend the document back to the sender, Save and Finish Later, or Decline to Sign.

After the document has been successfully signed, a signed version of the document is returned to Fluix and appears in My Inbox marked as Signed.

In addition, the email is sent to both the signer and the sender of the document.

If the signer declines signing of the document, it is pushed back to My Inbox and marked as Declined.

In case the signer didn’t have a chance to sign and return the document back before the link in the email expired, the document will be returned to the sender’s app, My Inbox section, with the status Expired. In that case, a user can send the document for signature once again.

Document retraction

If a document needs to be retracted, proceed to the Sent for Signaturesection-> select the file -> tap Void:

There admins can also void the documents from the Admin Portal, in the Document Status section.

The retracted file will no longer be available for the signer and will appear in My Inbox.

Continue with signed documents in the workflow

Once the document returns to the sender to My Inbox, it can be sent further as per the pre-configured workflow rule: emailed to other participants of the workflow, uploaded to company storage, etc. Once the document is submitted to its final destination, it will land in the Completed tab on the device.

You can also watch a video on how to collect signature online.
