How to Get the Most Out of Signing Links

With the new 6.9 iOS update comes many incredible new features. One of the most useful features in terms of efficiency is the option to send ‘signing links’ through the mobile app. Now, signing links can be used on web or mobile so you can send documents anywhere, anytime.

To do this, first create a template, and then make sure there are fields on the document or add fields if necessary. Next, click on the template you want to send out for signing — a popup will appear with several options. After, choose the ‘signing link’ option in the bottom left corner of the popup.

Lastly, copy the link. If you would like more advanced settings for your signing link, click on ‘more options’. With the ‘more options’ selection, you can allow the signer to send the document to other signers on your behalf, as well as change the settings so your signer can sign the document as a guest.

Once the link is copied, there are a couple things you can do with your signing link. You can send it through…

  1. Text messaging
  2. Email
  3. Groupchats or popular chatroom platforms
  4. Any other platform that you feel is secure enough for your document

We recommend sending signing links through secure platforms because it’s important to keep email confirmations for documents that get signed. However, if anything goes wrong and you lose your confirmation email, SignNow makes it easy to view document history on mobile and web. Click on the document or template, then click ‘document history.’ You’ll receive a full audit trail and information about who signed your document and when they signed it.
