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. Use the arrow and magnifying glass buttons along the top of the screen to navigate through the document. All fields that you need to fill will appear in orange. 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.
To fill a field, read through the document and click on orange fields as you come to them, entering the relevant information, and pressing “insert”. If you need to edit or add to this field’s text, you can click on the field again.
Clicking on the “Place Signature” field will take you to a slightly different screen. This field’s box will allow you to “sign” by drawing your signature to create a signature or initials.
When you’ve filled all fields in the document, make sure you’ve clicked through the entire document using the left and right arrows at the top. When you are satisfied, click on the green “Next” button on the top.
After submitting you will receive a copy of the signed document in your email.
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 “Congratulations!” screen and the signed document will be emailed to you.
