How Does a Signer Attach a Document While eSigning?

In BoldSign, we have made it easy for signers to attach documents while signing. When you are sending out a document for someone to sign, like maybe a contract or a form, you might need them to include some additional stuff, like their ID proof or supporting documents while they sign. That’s where our customizable form fields come in handy.

As the sender, you can easily request these attachments from the signers within the document itself. It’s extremely convenient because you can specify exactly what you need, all in one place. With BoldSign, simplifying document signing is just a click away.

Now, let’s walk you through how signers can add attachments during the signing process.

How to make a Signer to attach a document?

Attachment field in BoldSign lets signers upload essential documents. Senders can add several attachment fields in one document before sending it to signers. This attachment field enable signers to upload files in most common formats like PDF, Word, or in image formats.

Further, senders can give the attachment a clear name, guiding signers on its purpose. Clear instructions make attaching documents easy, and specifying supported file types ensures everything aligns with the necessary formats, making the whole process smooth and hassle-free.
