When sending a Contract, it’s vital that your signers sign in the right place and provide the correct information. This can easily be accomplished by assigning contract fields to your contracts prior to sending. Once you've
added all the fields on your Contract you want to capture from your signer(s), add your Contract to a Request, assign the fields, and send it for Signature. Get the steps here.

Once you've sent your contract, your signer will have an amazing signing flow that works great on mobile. 

Personalize Your Legal Center

Approaching something as binding as an e-signature is only successful if signers feel secure while offering up their personal information throughout the signing process. To ease the tension of online exchange of information,
personalize the branding of your contracts. By using this strategy, your logo, brand colors, and identity will be immediately visible to signers validating the legitimacy of the agreement. Then, when they receive your contract via email, completing the contract will be a no-brainer.

Create a Custom Email Greeting

Contract personalization goes even further when you create a custom greeting for your signers. This greeting will be embedded in the body of your initial contract email where you can reiterate the contents of the agreement and sign your name. Minute touches like this will set the tone for customer acceptance.
