  1. Date Picker Dropdown

    Hi guys, it would be great if there was an option to use a drop down date picker for the signer input fields. One of the things I need to have is my students date of birth and in the current format they need to keep pressing the back button to scroll backwards through the months which is very tedious for them. At the moment I have changed this to just a text field so they can just add it there instead but it would be much better is it was a drop down for day, month and year like…

  2. Customize the Back to Main Site URL

    Am testing my first document but after completion of the signing I click Back to Main Site and it goes to the site's root domain, not to the page it left when going to the E-signature document. Why isn't the Back to Site URL a part of the settings for every doc? Have I missed something?

  3. Multiple Signer feature for Standalone addon

    It would be great if you add an option of more than one signers for a standalone document too (same as basic one's).

    or

    If possible provide an automated workflow for basic documents also.

  4. output format

    would like if you could see format of final product, aka, letter/legal printing. Now there's not a way to preserve a format that is also responsive on the site. Ideally I want to have it printed on letter or legal size with an idea of how it will show up on the output. Right now that's just not possible.

  5. 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.

  6. Allow Signer to Delegate or Decline Signing

    I am used to Adobe Esign which allows signers to sign, delegate or decline.

    Here is a link to their video demonstrating this ability: https://helpx.adobe.com/sign/how-to/adobe-delegate-signing.html

    One key benefit would be that this allows signers to terminate the automatic reminder emails in an alternative, more productive way than marking the emails as spam.

  7. Custom Names for Signed Documents

    It would be nice if signed documents created from templates could have the person's name automatically included in the filename when it gets saved as a PDF. This currently happens for stand-alone documents, but not documents from templates.

  8. Add custom message to signer invite email - should be format capable

    IF we're trying to send a form to signed and want it to have greater detail in the custom message, no matter what we do to format, it bunches all of the paragraphs together and looks like a text. It's not very professional and should allow for formatting.

  9. configurable dynamic document title w/ gravity forms

    The current document naming format when configuring with gravity forms wp e-sign workflow is 'Document Title - [input field selected for signee name]'

    We need the ability to differentiate the document title naming convention and the signee name as it is sometimes necessary to name documents based on something other than the signee name.

    I would suggest simply adding an addition field above 'signer name' and 'signer email' to select a separate form field for the document naming convention.

    This would be very helpful.

  10. How can someone sign PDF documents

    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.

    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…

  11. 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…

  12. shareable document link

    It would be greate to have a share-able document link. This is the only reason I am using the Dropbox extension, so that I can send a link to the signed document.

    This is a great idea. One of the challenges though, is that as a security precaution, we don’t store generated documents on our customers servers. The document data is encrypted and stored in the database to prevent tampering or theft. Generating a PDF and storing it in a directory opens on the door for other security exploitations. We are working on new unique ways to solve this challenge. Thanks again for the feedback.

  13. GPS coordinates of signer

    Please add ability in next release, to add in signed pdf documents GPS (geolocation) of signer device, current position.

  15. Customisation of Document Page

    By far the most frustrating part of using your product is the lack of styling options on the Document Page. This is the absolute key part of the process - what our client sees and signs - and by far the weakest part of the product. We need the ability to either supply custom CSS - that works - or format the page with logo, colors, styles, fineprint, etc. The current logo process, combined with the alignment of the document name, just doesn't do much. Please make this a priority - it is literally causing us to consider not using…

    We have completely rewritten how the branding etc works in our 2.0 product. I look forward to sharing more details with you on how this looks… and works. What I can tell you is that you will have significantly more control over the branding option with the agency type plans.

  16. Ability to use WP E-Signature for regular business documents that are not on your website.

    Would love the ability to use WP E-Signature for regular business documents that are not on your website. You pay a lot of money for the plugin and should be able to log into your Approve me account on a desktop and create documents that need signing for regular business use that won't be placed on your website e.g. Non-disclosure agreements, contract agreements etc.

  17. Signer "Initials" Acknowledgement Input Field

    In addition to a final signature, many contracts require the signer to acknowledge certain portions of a contract as well as entire pages by adding their initials in one or more locations through out the contract. For example, Real Estate offers have many initial locations. E-Signature needs this capability. Need a signer "Initials" input field capability.

    Include the Initials in the signature selection dialog when beginning to sign a new document.

    hey guys… this Kevin the founder chiming in. I can definitely see the value in having this feature. And agree it is a very pivotal one.

    ApproveMe has been quietly working on adding this feature… however, it will likely be introduced in our first front-end PDF upload roll out which is still a couple months away.

    I apologize for the delay but we have devoted 100% of our (NEW) development resources to building out this plugin into a Wordpress powered application which will be MUCH MORE powerful and customizable than just your “old wordpress” plugin.

    Because of this… it’s taken a little longer to add these smaller features… but I assure you the new version will not disappoint :-) Thanks for the great feedback.

  18. Export data from signed waivers into an excel sheet

    It's impossible to search for a name of a specific person who signed a waiver online. Instead of having to sift through potentially thousands of documents, there should be a way to export the data from each signed document, such as name of signer, phone, email, or anything else you collect in the waiver. That way, I can easily search for one waiver that I need to find within thousands.

    Almost every other platform that collects information can do this.

  19. Internal File Name

    Can you allow a document to have both a "title" which is displayed to the signer and a "internal file name" that signers do not see but is shown in the admin interface? I would like to be able to add version info to the internal file name (ex. NDA Contract Version 2.2) without it being shown in the document title (ex. Non-Disclosure Agreement). Another way to accomplish this would be to provide a "version" field for each document.

  20. Add parameters to URL redirect from form fields

    Using the gravityforms add-on, I pass a hidden ID (that corresponds to the filename of a PDF that I redirect the user to after signature is completed).

    It would be nice to append the gravityform field onto the URL redirect, such as...

    http://bucket.s3.amazonaws.com/[esiggravityformid=1field_id=8].pdf

    The purpose behind this is that I have hundreds of forms that I need people to sign before they can access them. Instead of creating hundreds of stand-alone wp e-signature forms, I made just one that passes along an id in the URL parameters.

    It'd be nice to pass that ID to the URL redirect.

    Thanks Chris… we’re heavily considering and preparing our 2.0 with a user friendly API in mind. While I don’t yet have a release date it’s looking more and more like we’ll be able to start beta for the first phase of 2.0 sometime shortly after the holidays. The API will likely follow after the 2.0 release.
