Frequently Asked Questions


1. Is setting up a PIN similar to an access code?

No, a PIN is set up for digital signatures whereas an access code is set up for electronic signatures.


2. Why is the signature button not displaying for the user?

When a signature request has been sent as a digital signature request to an external recipient, the recipient will need to specify the signing Authority in their organization. For more information, please refer to:


3. How many signers can be added to sign a single file within an organization?


4.  How many approvers can be added on a single file sign flow?


5.  How can I update the Admin details e.g. if a user needs to transfer their admin privileges to a colleague before leaving the organization?

  • An Agree user with an Administrator role can create/add new Admin users, by selecting “Users” on the menu and adding new users with Admin privileges.

  • To transfer Admin privileges to an existing user, select the user from existing users under “Users” and update their privileges so they can edit the details / roles of any other users.

8.  How do I import templates and emails while signing the documents?

It is easy to create templates in Agree. Only a user with an Admin role can create templates by selecting the  "Templates" option in the menu. The Admin user will need to upload a standard document that they want to use as a template, select the signing fields for signers and receivers and save the changes for future use.

Once a template has been registered, it can be selected at the time of signing.


9.  How do I extend the validity of an Electronic Certificate?


10.  How can a recipient change the signer if they are not the signing Authority?

  • The requester who is creating the signing request can allow the recipient to change the signer by ticking the “Change Signer” check box during the request signing process. This means the recipient will be able to change the signer and forward it to the correct signing authority.

  • Users who have an electronic certificate for digitially signing will require a PIN code to complete the digitial signing request.
