How to Request a Signature

To use the 'Send to Sign' feature you must be subscribed to the Advanced plan. If you are subscribed on the Essentials plan, just upgrade your account subscription to the Advanced plan. The Send to Sign feature allows for signatures, initials and dates to be requested by up to five (5) signers in a specified order from both the Documents page of the web portal and directly within the document in the app on the mobile device. The information below will provide details on how to perform a Send to Sign through the iOS app on a mobile device. To see how to perform the action via the Documents page of the web portal see Send a Document for Signature (Web Portal). Note: Currently the feature only supports the iOS operating system using the 3.3.0 or newer version of the naturalForms app. Support for Android planned in a future release.
