Visible signatures

Visible signatures

Regulated industries like banking, finance, health care, and others can now have the collected signature metadata visible in the signed document. This will help customers follow their respective industry standards for digitally-signed documents and paperwork.

Visible signature components

  1. Recipient's signature
  2. Recipient's name and email address - Will be auto-fetched from the recipient details provided by the sender
  3. Signing reason - Reason associated with the signature, such as review or approval
  4. Signing time - Time when the signer finishes signing the document
  5. Unique recipient ID
Based on user requirement, they can choose either of the two options offered by Zoho Sign:
  1. Normal - vertical layout of metadata
  2. Wide - horizontal layout of metadata 
This is how a normal signature or a visible signature (either normal or wide) will appear on your signed document.

  1. When controls for life science is enabled, by default, the visible signature gets enabled and the normal signature option is selected. 
  2. Based on the sender's preference, they can choose either Normal or Wide.
  3. The signing time in the visible signature refers to the time when the signer finishes signing the document

Configuring visible signatures

  1. From the left navigation pane, click Settings > Account Settings and check Enable visible signature.
  2. Once enabled, select either Normal or Wide. By default, the Normal style will be chosen.

  3. You can select the details that need to be shown in the signature.
  4. Click Save.
