FAQs about bulk requests
How can I download or check the status of a bulk signature request?
How should I format my CSV file?
Your CSV file can contain as many columns of data as you like, but it must include at least a signers’ names column (labelled “name” in the header row) and a signers’ emails column (labelled “email_address” in the header row). The header rows in your CSV file must be the same as the merge fields in your template plus “_field”. For example, if the merge field is “name” in your template, the corresponding header row in your CSV file should be “name_field”.
Why am I getting an error message when I upload my CSV file?
If you get an error message when you upload your CSV file or special characters are replaced, your file may be encoded or formatted incorrectly. To ensure your CSV file is encoded and formatted correctly, save your CSV file as a UTF-8 encoded file, or use the CSV template that you can download when you get to step 6 in the instruction set above.
