Transparency Document

In some workflow scenarios, the signature and/or information gathered during the signing process may need to be printed on special government or corporate approved paper for official filing. In these cases, the purpose of the electronic signature process is to gather and place the signer’s signature and form data in specific locations to match up with the paper version of the document. When the document is printed on the special paper, it is calibrated to the blank paper form in the printer. The Transparency Document is designed specifically for this workflow.

When this feature is enabled, after the document has been signed by all parties, the sender will have an additional attachment called the Transparency PDF along with the final signed contract. The added Transparency PDF contains only the information the signer(s) added to the form fields during the signing process and not the underlying form.
