After you log in your SignX account, you will see your centralized dashboard, just below it will be your contact details and the link saying "Create a Signature". Click on that and you will get a small pop-up that will help you create the signature of your choice.

  • The first option is to "Draw" your signature using a mouse or the touchpad on your laptop or by drawing on your mobile device.
  • If you would rather "Type" your signature, click on "Type" tab next to the "Draw" tab. There you can type your signature and save it.
  • Alternatively, you can also upload a picture or a scanned image of your signature by simply clicking on "Upload signature" tab. You will see "Click to upload" option, click on that to browse for your file on the computer.

After uploading/drawing/typing signature is complete, click "Create" to create the electronic signature and save it.

Step 2: Upload PDF Files

To upload your PDF file, click on "Send New Document" button on your account's home. You will receive a popup with the text "Click to Upload (+)". Click on that to search for your PDF file on your computer. You can also upload from cloud storage that you may have integrated with SignX.

After the upload is complete, you can add access code to add end-to-end security to the document. You can also choose to skip by clicking "Next". Now, add recipients by entering email addresses for each. To enter multiple emails, click on the (+) icon with the text field. Add your email address too, to receive a copy of the document on your email. Select if you want to "Sign First" or "Sign Last".

Step 3: Insert Electronic Signature

After adding recipients, you can assign signature positions to all of them. After clicking "Next" twice, you will reach the window with all names on the left. Click on each to assign a signature location.

To insert your signature to the document, simply "Drag and Drop" the signature at your assigned location.

To set signature location for others, you can enter a customized message for all the recipients that will enable them to understand better. Any specific instructions can also be given through customized message.

Step 4: Collect Signatures and Manage Signed Document

You just need to wait for others to sign the document through the email. After they have inserted their electronic signature into the documents, you will receive the notification.
