How can I sign a contract I received?
If you receive a contract, you will get notified via email and in-app (if you already use our platform).
- Here is an example of what the email notification looks like:
- If you cannot find the email notification in your inbox, search for the request's sender email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- If you are already a user in Contractbook, you can also find the Pending contract on the Home page, under the "Ready for my signature" section:
- You can start the signing process by Clicking on Open contract in your email or Review and Sign from the Home page.
- This will lead you to the Contractbook platform, where you can follow the task line at the top of the document.
- Depending on the type of signature requested by the sender of the contract, there will be either 3 or 4 steps for you to go through.
- In some cases, the sender will allow you to choose from multiple types of signatures.
