Sets the order the party will receive the invitation to sign (or view) the document. For example, if you set the order to 2nd, that party will not receive their invitation until all the parties that you set to 1st have signed the document.
Each party can be either a signer or a viewer only. A Signing party is required to sign the document. A Viewer can only view the document and any attachments. If you (the logged-in user) are not a signing party, be sure to set yourself as a viewer.
Determines the method for the party to receive their signing invitation. Email and SMS invitations allow the party to sign on any device; they only need access to a browser. If you select In-person meeting, the signing party will not receive an invitation and can sign on a device with the Scrive eSign app installed. You, the sender, can also sign if you are logged in to your Scrive account. If you select one of the SMS options, Mobile will become a required field (shaded red). The API option is only available with Scrive API.
Authentication to sign
Require the signing party to authenticate themselves before signing.
PIN by SMS
If you don’t enter a mobile number before sending your document for signing, the signing party will be prompted to provide it during the signing process.
If you select this method, the ID number field will be added. If you don’t enter the party’s personal identity number, they will be prompted to provide it during the signing process.
Authentication to view
Require the party to authenticate themselves before viewing the document and attachments. If you select one of these methods, ID number will be added as a required field (shaded red).
Select how the party will receive their confirmation when the document has been signed.
- If you select Email, the signed document will be attached to the confirmation email.
- For SMS, the text message will include a link to the document so the recipient can download it. If you don’t enter a mobile, you can still use the SMS option; the signing party will be prompted to provide their mobile during the signing process.
- If you (the logged-in user) are not a signing party, None is useful because you can track the signing process in your E-archive.
Quick access toolbar
For quick access to the workflow options, use the toolbar icons (above the Mobile field). Each icon corresponds to the one of the workflow options in the lower part of the dialog. Clicking an icon cycles through the menu options. For example, the first icon on the left (a number) corresponds to Invitation order:
You can use these tools when the party dialog is open or closed. If you make a selection that requires further action in the dialog, a red border will indicate this. For example, if you select SMS invitation, you may need to add a mobile number:
