Signer editor

Reorder signers in a workflow

After adding multiple signers to a workflow, you can determine the order in which they will sign the resulting documents once a workflow submission has been completed. You can also add logic to PDF signature fields to control when a signer is applicable. If a signer is not applicable for a submission based on logic, the signer will be skipped and e-signatures will continue to be collected by the remaining signers in their respective orders.

Edit the 'signer order' field.

Adjust the ‘signer order’ field to reflect the order in which you would like this signer to sign. Note: from a signature field you can only reorder signers one at a time. Go to the signer editor if you would like to see and reorder all of your signers at once.
