Who can use this feature?
Staff users only
With e-signatures, you can easily send requests and get documents signed from anywhere, at any time, on any device all within the security of Qwil. There is no additional application, it all happens within the same chat.
Qwil Sign uses encryption and authentication measures to ensure that the signature is authentic, legal and adding a certificate to provide a full an audit trail. Learn more about e-signatures.
Currently only Advanced e-signatures are available with verified participants in a chat thread. We will in the future provide the ability to ask an external participant to sign a document. This will be a Simple Electronic Signature. We however recommend all signers to be invited on Qwil first to ensure the highest level of security.
What to expect?
- You can only create a signature request on desktop via the Dashboard (coming Q4 2023).
- E-signatures for external guest will be sent with a secure link in an email. To send a request you must upload a PDF file and include the sender email.
- Create a templated PDF or send PDF file for signature. A templated PDF enables you to place text fields (we call them Qwil Sign anchors) in any document so you can specify where the signature should be. Learn how to create a templated PDF. It only takes a few minutes and can easily be shared.
- Once completed by all parties, the signed templated PDF will be sent to all participants with all the details you required including a certificate page confirming its legal validity. The signed document will be available on the Dashboard of the requestor and by email for the external signer.
