How to create a workflow using a template


Templates are an easy way to recreate SigningHub workflows that Users use often.

For example, an insurance broker often meets prospective new clients. To retrieve the prospective new client’s financial information, the client must first sign an indemnity form.

Since the indemnity form always looks the same using a template can considerably        speed up the sign off process.


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

For this tutorial, the Document Owner must be registered on SigningHub.
