We are aware of how important it is to sign your documents in the most private and secure way. With Bounsel you can sign with confidence thanks to our biometric fingerprint and reliable electronic time stamp.
This is how Bounsel helps you sign your docs digitally and quickly.
Open the document you want to sign. The document doesn’t need to be approved in order to be signed.
In the left of the top toolbar, click the "+" icon to add a section. From the pop-up that appears, you can select the option “Add signatures”.
The sign block will be created in your document wherever your cursor was. In case you need to move it, just drag the block to where you need it.
In the right sidebar, click on the “Parties” icon and then, click “Add signatory” to choose who has to sign the document.
In the pop-up window that appears, select or type in the names of the signatories, add them by clicking on the "+" icon next to them and “Done”.
The signatories you added will appear in the Parties section. You can request the signature by clicking "Send" and confirming.
Once you send the document to be signed by the parties you won't be able to edit it further.
The names of the signatories will have a yellow clock next to them and the document will appear as 'to sign'.
If you happen to mistype an email address when adding a signatory, the name will show up red as the request to send will have failed and you will be able to update the signatory's email by clicking on the faulty name.
To sign, click on the space designated above your Name, Bounsel will ask you to confirm that you have read the document and legally validate your signature.
After confirming, you can sign the document.
Congratulations! You have signed a document with the Bounsel signature feature.
Your name will have a green check next to it in the Parties section, and the document will be in the 'signing' phase until all parties sign.
When all parties have signed the contract, they will receive an email with the document in PDF format as well as the Audit Trail. You can also always download the signed document directly from Bounsel.
