Reviewer Role

Reviewer Role


The reviewer role is a non-signing invitee type where the invitee either approves or rejects a document sent to them.

The purpose of this invitee type is to allow the sender to ensure that there is a review of the document before the same is sent for signing to the relevant signatories.
