Create a Public Signing Link


Important note: this is an 'early access' feature and specifically intended for when you want to get the same document signed multiple times by different users. It is currently not possible to use the public signing link in a way that one document can be signed by multiple people. 


1. Create a template

To add a signing link or button to your website or email you can use the public signing url.

First you will need to create a template the usual way as shown in how to create templates.


2. Generate the link

After opening the template in “edit” mode you can generate the public signing url in the bottom right corner.



Now follow the instructions on the pop-up.

A very important aspect is that your signer (the website visitor) will be treated as the “Sender” of the template. If you don’t need to sign then add “Contact 1” as copy only. (Like in the image below).




3. Customize the url

3.1 Add a fixed language

Add “&lang=en” to define a fixed language (by default SignRequest will use the browser language of the signer).



3.2 Disable or enable the text message verification

Add “&no_phone=1” if no text message verification is needed. (By default, a text message verification will be used which is charged at an additional €0.20/$0.25 USD per text). This is billed on the next issued invoice for your SignRequest account.



3.3 Add the email address of the signer

Add “&” if the email address of the signer is known. This will prefill the email address form field with ''



4. Email address verification

The signers of documents via a public signing link will be required to verify their email address via an email confirmation link that gets sent to them after signing.  The document will not be finalized until the email confirmation has been completed by the signer.  

The signature will also show as "not verified by SignRequest" until this verification step has been completed. 

The signer can also log in to SignRequest which will also verify the email address, but this is not required.


5. Email notification of document being signed

When a 'Public Signing Link' document is signed and verified, the signer and you will receive a 'Document Signed' email containing the 'signed document' and the 'signing log'.

So, you are notified when someone has first signed a 'Public Signing Link' document, but has not verified their email address yet, you can choose to select the 'Signer signed' notification option from the 'Account' page of your SignRequest account. An email will be sent to you each time someone has first signed the 'Public Signing Link' document.
