Three Workflows

👉 Multiple Documents

You have the option to attach multiple documents per item and send them collectively. Each document can be distinct, with customized placeholders.

However, it’s important to note that if you send multiple documents and your client declines even one, the entire set of signed documents will be declined. All documents must be signed to complete the process.
