How do I create and apply an E-Sign Template?


Templates will remember the exact placement and type of the signature fields on a document. It will also use the same signers applied to the fields when you saved the template.

This is a bit different than a layout. A layout will remember the placement and type of your signature fields, but it will leave them unassigned. Click here for more information on layouts.

If the E-Sign module is not available for you, you can purchase it here.
