How to create a simple electronic signing workflow in SigningHub


SigningHub has been designed to make the sharing and electronically signing of documents quick and easy.

Electronic signatures are ideal to sign documents that do not require high trust signatures like leave claims, memos, attendance registers, visitor forms, expense claims, approvals, etc.


This ‘How to article’ uses an electronic signature to sign the document.

There is no requirement for the Signer to be registered on SigningHub to electronically sign a document.
