eSign User Types

You can add two types of eSign users:

  • eSign Senders: These users can initiate the eSign process. Selecting the Contract PDF to be signed and choosing the Internal and External Signatories. 
  • eSign Authorised Signatories: These users are authorised to sign Contracts. 

To add an eSign Sender, select “Add” then “eSign Sender”

Select the user from the dropdown list and click “Save”

To add an eSign Authorised Signatory, select “Add” then “eSign Signatory”

Select the internal user from the dropdown list and click “Save”

Tip: These permissions can also be granted when setting up a new Gatekeeper User within the Add New User screen. See How To - Add a User for more details.
