Qwilr's digital signatures are here to help you save time and be more productive. They are part of our Accept Block.
Note: This feature requires our Business or Enterprise plans.
They support legally binding documents: Our e-sign functionality complies with the requirements of Australian law which align with the basic requirements provided for by the ESIGN Act and UETA in the USA and are recognized in many countries around the world, including the United Kingdom, Canada, France, Germany, and more.
We recommend seeking legal advice on the effectiveness of e-signatures in your own country, however. Although e-signed documents are recognized as legally binding in many countries, what actually makes the document “legally binding” is in the text your client agrees to, the type of agreement and the context of the agreement. So, an e-signature can support a legally binding contract, but it does not, by itself, make the contract legally binding.In some cases, for example, adding the following text around your accept button might help: "By clicking 'Accept' below and completing the 'Accept' form, I am confirming that I have read and understood the contents of this document/agreement and agree to be bound by them."
They'll work on any browser or device: Like every other part of a Qwilr Page, we've made sure the experience is excellent across all device types. Your clients can sign on desktop computers and mobile devices.
Enabling a signature
To enable a signature, you'll first want to add an Accept Block and then at the top of the block you'll see the signature setting.
And from there you'll enable e-sign.
From within the e-signature section, once it's been enabled, you can set it up to allow for multiple signees. This can be as many as you'd like. The document won't be accepted until you've received the number of signatures you've requested.
You can also pre-fill the signee names. This lets your clients know what signatures are pending. This also pre-fills the name field for them.
You'll do this by toggling "Enable prefilled name" and then filling out the name for each field.
Once your client is ready to accept, they'll now either see the accept form right away (if you only have 1 signee enabled) or a screen that allows them to choose their name.
From there they'll fill out the field and they have the option to click "Create" to generate a typed signature:
Or they can sign their own signature (works on all platforms including mobile):
Once someone has accepted and signed they'll also be prevented from signing again and will see the Accept button grayed out. The Qwilr Page will also show who last signed to any future viewers.
And the next person to sign will have all options pre-selected (they can't select different options from the first signee) and will also be able to see who specifically has signed.
From your dashboard, you'll also see how many signees have accepted.
Once everyone has signed you'll see it only as "Accepted" in your dashboard.
Once all signees have accepted and signed your quote, you be able to access a certified record or each step in the process through the Audit Trail. Every signee that accepts the quote will also receive an email with the PDF copy of the Audit Trail once the proposal has been accepted by all parties.
