Learn how to get the most out of the API signatures with SignNow

Today, API serves as the backbone for many successful companies. Even when using apps for your own individual needs, you almost certainly interact with APIs daily in one way or another. For example, when you ask Alexa to play music on Spotify, a lot happens behind the scenes to get you what you want. Much of that depends on APIs.

How electronic signature API works in SignNow

As in the example above, APIs serve as communication bridges between apps, enabling data sharing and action execution. The SignNow electronic signature integration employs this concept, allowing you to use SignNow's capabilities within your application or CRM. It facilitates such processes as self-eSigning, sending eSignature requests, tracking status, and saving signed documents to your records system.

Whether you need to approve a document with your own autograpgh or collect a similar written endorsement by your counterpart, the flow goes very simply. To sign a paper, you just need to upload it to your account, open it in the editor, and choose the Signature instrument to affix your approval. If you need a file signed, open the sharing option and insert your recipient's email. They can eSign it right from their mailbox.

Once you open your document in SignNow, you have several options to sign your file. You can create your signature using your mouse or a trackpad, upload a picture of your handwritten autograpgh, or generate it by typing in your full name or initials.

Usually, the online approval workflow in SignNow begins by creating or uploading the document, followed by adding the signature field(s), specifying the persons to fill them if needed, and finally sending out the file for eSignature. On the other end, the recipient gets the eSIgn invitation in their email and can endorse the file in a few clicks.

An electronic signature in business usually accompanies a wider solution organizations implement to manage their paperwork more effectively. An organizational-scale solution like SignNow provides all the instruments to provide effective management of your online signatures in business.

SignNow lets you create your online signature by drawing, generating, or uploading a picture. Once generated, it will appear on the documents you sign by default. To make your correspondence and documentation more professional, you can brand it with your organization's logo in SignNow’s settings.
