      We have indeed been working on 2.0 for a while. We were initially planning on releasing it 100% as a fully WordPress ran application… and got very very close to doing so; however, similar to the PCI compliance industry (i.e. the industry that regulates accepting credit cards online) there’s been an uprising of laws and regulations in the document signing industry.

      So while we are very close to having 2.0 release ready we’re in the process of having to re-architect the API and set it up to run a portion of the application in our cloud while still maintaining the overall customer experience so everything still feels seamless and like it’s all taking place on YOUR site. As such there’s still some backend changes that we are quickly working to mitigate.

      The good news is the team is continuing to develop the final screens that remained however, it will realistically…

    • Have a option to password protect a document once signed.

      I would like to see an option to have a password automatically added to the document once signed. Some documents have sensitive information, and it would be good to add an extra layer of protection.

      The password could be assigned based on a combination of field data and wordpress admin info, or an area in the plugin with a code that could be changed. Or something else you can come up with.

          • Ability to use an external certified Timestamp API

            Hello again

            This function is i think essential for European users like me.

            With the new eIDAS law which defines better the law arround the electronic signature, it appears to me that ApproveMe is "almost" okay to be used in a court.

            The eIDAS specifies a "strong" law recognition of the Electronic Signature with an addition to US laws : Only some specific Companies are certified by an official certificate from a country member of the European Union to deliver certified timestamp (like www.universign.eu)

            These organisation delivers Timestamp API (paid by contract timestamped).

            That would be a very strong…

            • REMOVE all the outbound links. at least (until it is signed)

              The SIGNED contract, in my mind, is the accounts receivable I can count on. Having all the disclaimers is great however, in the contract flow there are three or four area that allow Signers to click a link to your website. which is informative, however it is 100% an ad. i dont like it. i would like my clients to see the contract and sign it. let me decide on what links they need to see. i paid for it right?

              • Signing multiple forms at once

                Signing multiple forms at once. I have multiple forms that need to be signed but the only way I can figure out how to do it is to create one "stand alone document" for each form, then have them redirect to each other. But this means that the client has to still enter their name, email address, and sign each individual form. Is there an easier way to do that that I'm missing? (And ultimately I need each form to be its own PDF - or at least its own page in a PDF).

                  • Add multiple Signers to Standalone forms

                    The standalone form is great becuase it truly allows you to get signatures completed on documents online, however it doesn't address the issue that i have multiple parties required to sign each of my documents. Take a lease for example or another contract which has muliple parties... -> Like docusign, an email should be sent to the 2nd, 3rd, ... parties to "generate a login" and/or sign the documents as a guest.

                          Please give us a options to change size of signing area? I mean in height. Now i think height is 100px, but it is too small for smartphones with capacitive displays. Or just make a little bigger size, with 50px more ... And same needs for main admin in E-Signature Admin Settings.

                                We use Gravity Forms to pass data collected in our form, into one of our Stand Alone documents. Once a document is signed, we need to edit the email that is sent to us, the admins. Right now it just says, "Hi Chris, Robert Smith (email) has signed the document."

                                  Hi,
                                  I already have PDF documents created by a different software, I need end user to sign the pdf documents in the signature area that is already in the pdf document. Is there any way I can ask end user sign to that specific pdf document in the specific area. All softwares such sa docusign, esignlive and others allow pdf documents to be signed in the signature field.

                                    So while we are very close to having 2.0 release ready we’re in the process of having to re-architect the API and set it up to run a portion of the application in our cloud while still maintaining the overall customer experience so everything still feels seamless and like it’s all taking place on YOUR site. As such there’s still some backend changes that we are quickly working to mitigate.

                                    We use the Stand Alone document feature as well as the Gravity Forms integration. Once the document is signed, we would like a signed PDF copy to go to the Manager working the file. This email is captured in the Gravity Forms order form before being sent to the Approve Me stand alone doc. Would like to have the signed pdf copy routed to the manager instead of coming to only the Admin email.

                                    • Add the ability to automatically generate a contract number or identifier on a contract.

                                      The contract should have a contract identifier that customers can refer to when they call about a specific item on their order. Printing this number on the contract will allow the customer to keep the contract and have everything they need to contact us whenever they need to make a change or have a question.

                                        • Allow the creation of a new "draft" document from an existing document (either signed or awaiting signature)

                                          I know you can not allow someone to edit a document once it is created but it would be great if you could allow them to create a new "draft" document using the same content as an existing document.

                                          Many times you create a contract, send it to a signer only to have them request edits. If you where not smart enough to same a copy of the html content before you send it, you have to start from scratch.

                                          This is by far the biggest problem I have with your program as it requires me to keep copies of…
