Field Types

The right-hand column holds the fields available to be placed into the document(s).  Below are some descriptions and explanations of what is located in each.
When you find the field you want to insert, hold left click over the field and drag it over to the document.


Switching between recipients and anyone allows the editor to see what fields will appear for a specific recipient or multiple people.  Note the color changes for various fields that are assigned to different people.

Signature Fields

  1. Signature - Common signature field for signing a document.  Recipient will have the option to use Typed Text, Draw, Image Upload and Mobile Signature. The latter option will ask for a phone number and allow the recipient to draw the signature on their smartphone.
