Managing Templates

All of your templates can be found in the Templates section of the menu, where you can group and organize them into different categories for better navigation.

Right-click on a template to access a contextual menu with available actions.

Template actions

You have the option to switch between Grid View and Table View when browsing through your templates.

In Grid View, you will get a quick thumbnail overview of all templates while Table View shows you the type of roles/signatories and other participants of the eSigning workflow, both internal and external.

Template roles

Preview Templates

By clicking on a template, the template preview screen will appear. There you can view the content of the template and select actions from the dropdown menu.

Available Actions

Add fields

This action is only available for templates that do not contain any recipients or fields yet. Select this action if you want to add recipients, roles, and fields to the template.

Sign in bulk

Use the template to send multiple signature requests at once.
More about bulk signing here.

Edit template

Easily make any modifications necessary for an existing template (workflow participants, names and roles of signatories, signature and other fillable field placeholders, what’s mandatory or optional, etc.).


  1. Right-click the template you need to change and select Edit.

  2. You will then be able to edit all important settings as if you were creating a new template.

Edit 2


Change the name of the template.

Create document

Just like you can create a template out of a document, you can create a regular document out of a template. Any fields and settings will be removed.


Create a copy of the template.


Download a PDF version of the document from the template. Fields will be removed.

Share Template

Availability: Business and Enterprise

Share the template with other members or teams.

Lock Template

Availability: Business and Enterprise

When using eSigning templates with other members of your team or organization, decide whether you want the recipients to be able to make changes to the template during the signature process or not.

Use the Lock template button so that other recipients cannot add or remove signature or other fillable fields, setting a firm standard and ensuring compliance across all signatories.

Once the template is locked, it will gain a green locked label. You can then navigate to the dropdown menu and Unlock template at any time, should you change your mind.

Template lock

Change Category

By default all the templates are saved to the “root” folder of the Template library without any template category assigned.

Change category

In the Change category window, you can create a New Category or choose from already existing categories. By clicking on Move, your template will be moved to the selected category.

Change category dialog

A category will be automatically deleted once you remove all templates from it.


Unlike documents, templates are not moved to Trash from where they could be recovered. Upon deletion, templates are removed permanently.
