Article Summary

To get your documents signed electronically, you must assign signers to your document in the Signature block. Depending upon who needs to sign your document, here are the three different scenarios you can choose from:

  1. Assigning only yourself as the signer
  2. Assigning yourself and others as signers
  3. Assigning only others as signers

1. Assigning only yourself as the signer

To assign yourself as a signer, you must be logged in to your LegalZoom account.

When you upload the document for e-signature, by default, you (the document sender) become the signer of your document. Your name and email ID are already added to the Signature block.

Place the Signature block tags on your document with a simple drag-and-drop action and proceed to self-sign your document.For self-signing in LegalZoom, drag and drop the signature tag in your name from the signature block onto your document.

2. Assigning yourself and others as signers

Follow the below steps:

  1. Assigning yourself: When using our eSignature service, the document sender is automatically set as the default signer. You can find your name and email ID placed in the Signature block.
  2. Assigning others: Click the + Add another signer button and add new or existing signer details.Click the Add another signer button to add more signers along with you. Drop the signature tag on your document for signing.

  3.  Once you add all the signers, drag and drop the tags from each Signature block onto your document, where you need the signers to add these details.Assigning%20yourself%20and%20others%20-%202(2)

3. Assigning only others as signers

When using our service, the document sender automatically becomes the default signer of the document. However, if your document is meant for external signers only, please delete the Signature block with your details and add other signers' information.

Note:
You can only proceed to delete your Signature block after adding at least one new block, as there must be a minimum of one Signature block present at any given time. 

Follow the below steps:

  1. Click the + Add another signer button and add new or existing signer details.Assigning%20only%20others%20-%201(2)

  2. Delete the signature block assigned to you. Click the Add another signer button to add more signers, & delete your signature block to send the document to others only.

  3. Once you add all the signers, drag and drop the tags from each Signature block onto your document, where you need the signers to add these details.Assigning%20only%20others%20-%203(2)
