  1. 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.

    • Deal Package for Multiple Documents

      It would be nice to have a "package" for multiple documents required like a check of list for a complete transaction that requires more than one document.

      also it would be great to invite humans that need to see the documents but not necessarily need to sign anything.

      • Document Signing - Flow / Wizard

        As an {admin} user, I need the {ability to specify a series of documents to be signed by the end user} so that {I can capture all necessary documents in my businesses enrollment process.}

        Currently, there is no way to specify a series of documents to be signed by an end user. I would like to be able to select a set of documents that the end user has to sign as as part of an enrollment process. Currently, I can create a set of single documents for the user to sign but I can not tie several documents together…

        • 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…

            • Spend some time on your documentation

              You documentation is very much lacking. There's almost nothing that I have tried to find where there was any information on the subject.

                Ability to bulk download signed PDFs of a stand alone document. My clients can have hundreds of PDFs they currently have to download one by one. Bulk download would be fantastic!

                • Re-modification of document after signature

                  I need a way to modify the doc after it is filled out. Currently, I'm having my clients fill out the document then they sign it. But when they fill it our wrong or decide to make a change to the contract later, I have to re-do everything instead of just making a minor change. Changes to contracts happen al the time and this feature would really be helpful for us.

                  • IFTT or Zapier Integration

                    I would love this plugin if it could generate a contract based upon a IFTT or Zapier action. I could fill out a form on my website or in a CRM they support and a contract could be generated from that info and sent out.

                    Also, it would be awesome if it also could generate an action for IFTT or Zapier after a contract is signed. It could add a date on my Calendar or automatically send out an invoice to bill for the amount due.

                    It would be a really great addition to the functionality of this plugin.

                    Thanks.

                      This is a fantastic suggestion. I couldn’t agree with you more. We really need to have the ability to hook into third party providers.

                      With our PDF Upload and 2.0 Front-End Dashboard nearing beta in the coming months the team is most definitely (even now) preparing the code base for a new API that can handle more industrial and enterprise level automations and sophisticated workflows.

                      All that to say… it’s coming! And while we’re not specifically building out the zapier add-on we are building out the API which is required first before creating the zapier add-on.

                      Looking forward to sharing this with you guys!

                      Regards,

                        • Better email notification settings

                          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-on to Integrate with Office 365: SharePoint, OneDrive, Groups, and Teams

                            Short Description: Similar to the DropBox integration, provide a way to store signed documents in the Microsoft Office 365 Platform.

                            **User Story Description**
                            As a {admin} user, I need {to sync my signed documents to my Office 365 tenancy} so that {I can collaborate on signed documents with my team and centrally the store them}.

                            - The add-on will create an "Office 365 Sync" tab to the WP E-Signature administration when installed.

                            - The admin user has the ability to authenticate their Microsoft account from the WP E-Signature settings page.

                            • 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.

                              • Ability to manually sign document

                                In cases where a client prints and hand signs a document, it would be useful to be able to manually mark the document as signed so it doesn't sit forever in the "Awaiting signatures" section of the backend.

                                • 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.

                                      Offering or having this available would spike my interest in your product. I am a tax office having many people out of state that have to sign form 8879. To use e-signature requires having Knowledge Base Authentication, IRS rules.

                                        Not sure if this is already possible, but, after a customer signs the document, it is sent to another person to sign and complete.

                                        • HTTP request after signature

                                          I'd like to be able to create an HTTP request automatically when a document is signed.

                                          I'm using a stand-alone form to collect liability waivers from my students. I'd love to be able to update the student's record in my CRM with the date that they signed. (For new students, I need to be able to know how has/hasn't signed. And when I update the waiver, I need to know who has/hasn't signed the new version.)

                                          To do that, I need to be able to pass at least their email address and the date they signed via an HTTP request.…
