eSIGN AND SEALS

eSIGN AND SEALS

Use the eSign and Seals tab to set up and configure different types of eSigns and their appearances. This is going to be especially useful if you are a regular signer on Leegality’s growing platform; your configurations will be prepopulated when you are attempting to sign the document and you would not have to re-draw/ configure signatures and seals.

Note: In case the document sender has enforced certain configurations on the signature that conflicts with your saved configuration, the sender's configurations will be given priority. 


Using this tab, you can configure the following:

  1. Virtual Signature

  2. Cloud DSC Signature

  3. Document Signer Signature

  4. Default Signature Seal
