The End of signature is generally used to set up commercial or promotional offers that are only valid until a specific date (end of the month for example).
When you add an end of signature, you ensure that the signer will not be able to sign the document when your offer is no longer available.
End of signature or expiration date, what it means?
Define an end of signature for a procedure is the same as setting a date in the tool from which the procedure will expire and therefore can no longer be signed by the signers or validated by the validators.
This date is used to stop the signature process.
⚠️ The signer is not informed of this expiration date unless if you add the tag provided for this purpose in the Personalisation of notifications.
⚠️ You cannot change or delete an expiration date once the procedure is created.
Define an expiration date for my procedure
The creation of a signature request is a three-step process:
Step 1 : Add members (signers, validators)
Step 2 : Add the documents that need to be signed
Step 3 : Define procedure settings
Add an expiration date to my procedure is during step 3.
- Go to the Settings when you create a procedure or a template.
- Go the first Menu, Managing the procedure
- Go to End of Signature field.
- Select a date in the calendar
Please note that the End of signature is optional.
My procedure is over, what's going on?
Once the procedure has expired, signers can no longer sign it.
You can find it again in the Signatures menu and then in the Cancelled section.
You can duplicate the procedure to recreate it with the same information if necessary.
