Advanced Signing Tools support more flexible workflows. HelloSign currently offers 3 Advanced Signing Tools: Decline to Sign, Signer Reassignment, and Variable Signers. Each Advanced Signing Tool is explained in-depth below.
Decline to Sign
Decline to Sign adds the option to halt a signing flow, giving signers more control when things aren’t quite right. Once declined, the signer will be asked to fill in a “Reason for Decline” box to give insight to the sender.
Users who send the document that’s declined will receive the summary of why the document wasn’t signed.
To enable Decline to Sign please include the "allow_decline" parameter in your POST request. Decline to Sign is available on the API endpoints below.
When a signature request is sent out with an incorrect email address, Signer Reassignment allows document recipients to easily route documents to the right person. The original recipient simply enters the name and email of the appropriate person, and then “reassigns” the signature request.
Signer Reassignment is available on Gold API subscriptions and above. To enable Signer Reassignment please include the "allow_reassign" parameter in your POST request. Signer Reassignment is available on the API endpoints below.
Not all document have a static number of signers. Rental agreements, for example, often have an elastic number of signers depending on the number of tenants.
Variable Signers gives users the power to easily adjust the number of signers for a template. It’s a perfect fit for documents like rental contracts, mortgage paperwork, and forms that may require co-signers.
Variable Signers is available on Gold API subscriptions and above. To enable Variable Signers please set up your template with the maximum amount of signers needed. Variable Signers is available on the API endpoints below.
