Participants of the eSigning process

Who is sender, recipient, signatory, or participant?

Here's the terminology we use in Circularo and throughout our tutorials, explained. 

Sender - person requesting signatures from other people

Recipient - any person receiving a document from the sender - this can be a signature request or simply a document with viewing rights

Recipients can either be registered Circularo users or external recipients. 

Signatory - any person signing a document, either by directly uploading and signing it or by receiving the document from another person.

Participant - any person participating in the eSigning process, including both the sender and the recipient
