Getting Started With SignNow

SignNow is a tool used to send documents for signing.  It allows you to configure and deploy legally binding eSignatures for your documents, contracts and web forms.

Once your account has been created, you will probably find the simplest way to get started is to upload your document.

On the left side menu, click the ‘Upload or Create’ button and a sub menu will drop down

Select ‘Upload Templates’ from the sub menu

Browse to your template document, select it and click ‘Open’

Your template document will open in the SignNow page

From the left side menu, select the type of field that you want to add to your document.  If you are sending a contract to someone, you will probably want to start by choosing items from the ‘Fill Out Myself’ section.  For example, select ‘Text’ from the ‘Fill Out Myself’ section, click and drag to where you want the text to go.  Start to type the content and the text field will be populated.  Repeat this process until your document is complete.


If you have any fields that you want to get the recipient to sign, select these from the top left part of the menu (below Recipient1).  For example, if you want the recipient to sign the document, select the ‘Signature Field’, drag and drop it onto the document.

When you have added all of the necessary fields to your document, click the ‘Invite to Sign’ button on the top right of the page.

In the Recipient box, enter the email address of the person who you want to send the document to.

Click the ‘Send Invite’ button
