Signer editor

Add multiple signers to a workflow

After adding your first signer, you can add unlimited additional signers to a Workflow, then mark which fields they need to sign in order to send completed Workflow submissions for e-signatures. Once a Workflow submission has been completed, signers will automatically be emailed to sign the resulting documents in the order you specify.

1. Signer order: Now that you have multiple signers, you can choose the order in which they sign.
2. Signer nickname: The signer nickname only appears in the Workflow editor to help you quickly distinguish your signers i.e. New Client, Cosigner, or Broker. This will default numerically based on how many signers have been added.
3. Signer name: Manually add a signer name or fill from a webform field. By default, the first available webform name field will be selected.
4. Signer email: Manually add a signer name or fill from a webform field. By default, the first available webform email field will be selected.

Why does my signer need an email?

Emails help Anvil identify and verify individual signers. We also use email addresses in order to send e-signature requests to signers once a Workflow submission has been completed, as well as sending all signers a copy of their signed documents once the signing is completed. Even if your PDF does not have an email field to be filled, you can add an unconnected field to your webform that will collect your user’s email address for e-signature and notification purposes without being present on any resulting PDF documents.



Note:

E-signatures in Workflows are an Anvil Pro feature. If you are an Anvil Free user and would like to request e-signatures on Workflow submissions, upgrade now to Anvil Pro.
