How Do I Sign a Document

When someone requests you to sign a document via email, you can sign it easily whether you have a CocoSign account or not. 

Simply use your Gmail, Apple mail, or other email clients to open the email and you’ll be able to know who has sent you the invitation for signature and the document name. Hit the Start Signing button in your email to continue. To sign from email as a guest, read our next guide article to learn more.

If it just happened that you didn’t receive the email, you can:

1) Ask the sender to provide a signing link, and click the link to sign directly. The sender can share the document this way:

2) Register a CocoSign account with your email address, and head to your dashboard. Find the document at Documents - I Need to Sign. Then you can sign the document in a few seconds following our Sign from CocoSign Dashboard guide.

Specifically, you can sign a document following the steps below:

Step 1: Check the box I agree to the use of electronic records and electronic signatures and hit Continue.

Step 2: Click the fillable fields and fill in details one by one. When it comes to the Signature field, you can choose to append your signature by uploading, drawing or typing. Click Sign Now to confirm your signature. 

Step 3: After all the required fields have been completed, there will be a reminder at the upper-right corner telling you that you can proceed to the next step. All you need is to click the Complete button.

Note:  If you find errors within the document and refuse to sign the document, you can hit Others and choose Decline.

You will be told that the document will be voided and other signers cannot view or sign if you choose to decline it. You can explain your reason for declining the document or leave it blank. The reason along with the voided notification will be sent to all recipients’ email.
