How to add a witness to a document

Adding witnesses to an esign document is easy and fast to do on Legalesign.

Go to the document's PDF edit page (within Docs section) and drag and drop a Signature field onto the document. The field's form will pop up with one drop-down box visible.

Click the drop-down and scroll down until you see Signer 1 - Witness . Select that option (or for other signers as appropriate) and save the field.

Fields allocated to a witness have a dotted border in colour matching the signer, for example, a witness for Signer 1 has a green dotted border while a witness for Signer 2 has a blue dotted border. By comparison, signature fields for a standard signer have a solid border.
