What is the signing order of my contract?
The first setting related to the signature process of your contracts is located at the top of your contract draft.
Unless you choose Only me signing option for the contract, you can choose between having a predefined by you as the creator of the contract signing order or letting everyone sign at the same time, once you send the finished contract.
Specific signing order
If "Should signees sign in a specific order?" is toggled on (colored in green), the signees (including yourself if you are one of them) will sign the contract exactly in the order in which they appear in the Signatures section. You can change the order by appointing a number to a Signee in the drop-down menu Signing order.
Why one of the Recipients has received the link to the contract while the rest have not?
If there are multiple recipients of your contract sent for signatures, they will receive the contract one at a time only after the signee before them has already received and signed the document.
For instance, the third recipient from the Signing order will not get the contract before the second recipient has signed it:
No signing order
If "Should signees sign in a specific order" is toggled off (colored in grey), all the Signees will receive their individual link to the contract at the exact same time.
If you turn specific signing order off, you can choose to sign first by clicking Send and sign or sign later by clicking Send now and sign later:
