In any case, with Parallel add a eSignature process is possible. We integrate an electronic signature feature, so that your recipients can enjoy a simple and 100% online experience.
💡 Integration with electronic signature is only available under request.

Add eSignature on a template
The best option if you want to save time in your processes, it's to activate the eSignature in the template. This way, every time that template is used, the eSignature will be activated and configured according to your needs.
Let's see how to activate and configure it step by step.
First, make sure you access the template in which you want to activate it:
You can create a new template, in this article you'll learn how to do it.
or you can select an existing template, and enter in Edit template.
From the template, go to the Settings tab and add an eSignature process.
Configure your eSignature process
When added, a window will appear with the different configuration options:
eSignature provider: This option only appears when there is more than one signature provider in your account. Allows you to change between Signaturit and Signaturit Sandbox, their test environment, which doesn't consume credits and can be used for testing. However, in most cases you will not need to change it.
Title of the document: This title will be use as the header of the document, bellow your organization's logo and will name the signed file.
When you want the eSignature to start?: Here you can choose at which point in the process you want to send the document to be signed.
After the petition is completed: Once all the required information is completed, the signature will be sent directly.
This option is recommended in processes where agility is sought and the review process is not so important.
After reviewing the information: In this option, after completing the information and checking that it is correct, you can start the signature manually. From the Review tab.
This opction is recommended in processes where it is important to check that the information is correct before signing the document
If you selected the first option "After the petition is completed", you will have a second step will to indicate who has to sign the document.
3a. Who has to sign the document?, you have two options:
Indicate once the petition in completed: This option allows you to choose who has to sign later. It is usually the most recommended when you configure from the template, since generally, the signers will vary depending on the process.
Include signers: This option allows you to add emails contacts to sign. In the template, can be used to include a contact of your organization that you know will have to sign off on all the processes in that template.
When adding a signer, a checkbox will appear to allow recipients to add additional signers. you can activate it if you want your recipients to be able to add additional signers.
