Sending eSignature Documents and Offers
Updated over a week ago

Sending documents and offer letters to candidates for their eSignatures is a great way to optimize your recruitment and speed up your processes.

After you have previously activated your eSignature provider and you have your offer and document templates ready, it is time to start sending your documents to candidates for their eSignatures.

The main difference between offers and documents is that offer letters can only be sent from the Offer type stage, while documents from all available stages of your job pipelines.

Sending eDocuments to candidates

  • Click on three dots and select the Send documents for signing option.
    ​

  • Select the document template you want to use and send to the candidate for his/her digital signature.
    ​

  • The next step will be to prepare the document before you send it to the candidate. You will need to fill out the default fields and potentially your Internal variables.
    ​
    πŸ’‘The optional Internal variables will depend on how the template was edited under your Offers & eSignature settings.
    ​
    You can also define your eSignature tag values for tags you have previously added to your document template.
    ​

  • In the next stage, you can customize the email message that will be sent to the candidate and to which the eSignature document is attached.
    By clicking the Send button, the document will be sent to the candidate's email address for his/her digital signature.

After a document is sent to a candidate, it will appear as an activity on the candidate's activity feed in the Waiting for candidate signature status.

After the document is signed by the candidate, it will change status to Signed and the updated document will be attached to that activity.
