How to perform in-person signing


In-person signing allows meeting hosts to let Users that are in their presence sign a document even though the other Users do not have SigningHub accounts.

This could be useful for an investment broker who regularly meets clients while not at the office. For example, an investment broker meets a prospective client at a coffee shop. The clients indicate they want to continue and must now sign an indemnity form to allow the investment broker to continue.

In this instance, the investment broker will act as a Meeting Host. The broker will load the indemnity form on SigningHub and add the required number of in-person signature boxes for the clients to sign.


  • The Meeting Host must have a SigningHub account.

  • The in-person signers do not require SigningHub accounts.


This workflow will be configured for a Meeting Host to let one or more Signers sign with in-person signing.

For ease of use, automate the document preparation with the help of a template.
