How to Sign Documents On-the-Go with KeepSolid Sign
In the information age, it is highly important to stay up to date. We have smartphones, tablets, and/or laptops, but do we benefit from their capabilities to the full extent? For instance (and for the sake of our today’s article), do you use e-Signature solutions? If you are not familiar with this term, it is a tool which allows you to sign documents electronically and releases you from an old-fashioned print-sign-scan-send routine. If you have to sign over 5 documents per month, or if you work with complex agreements that involve multiple signers, e-Signing becomes essential for you.
One more benefit of electronic signature tools is that you can easily e-Sign any documents on-the-go right from your smartphone or tablet, wherever you are. The key point here is that most decent e-Signature apps’ smartphone and tablet versions provide you with the same high-grade functionality as the desktop ones. That’s why, if some of your partners or colleagues suddenly send you an extremely important contract that needs to be signed ASAP, this won’t be a problem for you. Below are our guides for iOS and Android users on how to sign documents electronically, using KeepSolid Sign as an example.
E-Signing on iOS
Let’s take a look at how you can electronically sign documents on your iPhone and iPad. Once you’ve downloaded the app and created an account, what should you do next? First things first, create your own signature. For this, go to profile settings -> choose My signature -> add your signature and initials. Alternatively, you can draw them right in the app or scan your real-life signature with your camera.
Now you are ready for any eventualities. When you get a document for signing you can open it in KeepSolid Sign from your email clients, Camera Roll, clouds, etc. You also can add new documents to the app from:
- Template tab
- Google Drive
- iCloud Drive
The contract will appear in your Document tab. After that, open it, find the needed page, and tap the Annotation button, as shown below.
After this step, you can choose what annotations to add to your contract. It could be signatures, initials, text, dates, or checkmarks. Next, choose signers and/or observers. By the way, great news – your partner isn’t required to have a KeepSolid Sign account in order to receive or sign your contract, they’ll get it in their email box.
E-Signing on Android
A feature set of e-Signing services on Android is almost the same as that of iOS. The only difference is the user interface. For instance, the box for creating your signature will look as shown below. But the process of creating an e-Signature is the same: open My signature tab in profile settings -> create your signature and initials right there or scan them with your camera.
When you get a document on your Android device, you can also open it from wherever it is, or just import it to the app. The list of storages is as follows:
- Template tab
- Google Drive
- Android Storage
Then you can open the contract from the Document tab, find your page for signing, and click the Annotation button.
The annotation process allows you to add a signature, initials, text, dates, or checkmarks, and choose signers. Once you’ve finished, click the send button as seen below. If your partners don’t have KeepSolid Sign accounts, they will get an email with a link. Following the link, they will get access to the document.
Another essential feature to effectively sign contracts on-the-go is the Offline mode. It happens sometimes that you need to sign a document in the most ill-suited places or situations. For instance, when you are on a plane or enjoying an exotic vacation. In such situations, there is probably little to no internet connection.
That’s when the Offline mode in KeepSolid Sign will come in handy and save your day. You can add your signature to contracts, open your files in the Split view on iPad and Drag&Drop contracts to the Documents tab, annotate other signers and observers, create templates, and a lot more. The only thing you can’t do in the Offline mode is to download documents or send them to someone, this would still require internet connection.
That’s it for today! We hope that this guide was helpful for you. In the end, don’t be afraid to use e-Signature apps on your smartphone or tablet, they really save your time and help to be effective while on-the-go. See yourself!
