This article discusses receiving and signing a Vinesign document. This article is meant for clients who are receiving documents to be signed. For more information about using Vinesign and sending documents to be signed, read Using Vinesign.
Receiving the Link
You will receive a link to sign the document through SMS, email, or both. To begin signing, click on the link in either your SMS app or your email.
If you click a link and receive an error message reading “Document Expired,” the sender marked this link to expire after 24 hours. In this case, the sender will need to resend a new link to you to sign.
Clicking the link will bring you to the document for signing. You will be directed to the first fillable field, which can be filled in-line with the surrounding text. When you finish filling a field, you can click the orange “Next” button in the top right corner to be directed to the next fillable field.
Some fields, like the date and name auto-fields as well as any custom fields named “phone” or “email,” will be filled automatically, and do not need to be filled by the recipient.
Clicking on the signature or initial field will bring up a flyout screen where you can draw your signature or initials. If you need to fill out either a signature or initials multiple times in a document, you will be able to reuse the same signature or initials.
When you’ve filled all fields in the document, the “Next” button will become a “Finish” button. Click this button to finish filling the document and submit it.
If your sender has required gesture authentication, Vinesign will ask you to take and upload a photo of yourself using a specific gesture. For example, you may be asked to take a photo of yourself giving a thumbs-up sign or a peace sign. This photo is used as another layer of authentication.
Click “Submit.” When you hit submit, you will be taken to the “Success!” screen. When all signers have signed, you will receive a copy of the signed document.
