Our signature settings enables you to configure how your customers interact with the documents you send them for e-signature. By default, there are three different types of signatures your customers can choose from:

  • Draw signature – The most common way of signing a document, involves drawing your signature using your mouse or using your finger when on a touch-screen device.
  • Choose signature – Choose from 10 unique signature styles that we automatically generate using your first name and last name.
  • Upload signature – Upload an image of your signature from your hard-drive. This option may be useful if you already have a copy of your signature in an electronic format.
