SignEasy offers the option to sign documents even when you don't have a connection on your device with our offline signing option.
How can I sign my documents while offline?
When a document is opened in the app, we save it in the device local storage temporarily. In order to enable a document for offline signing, you'll need to download it in the app first.
You can download the document one of two ways:
- Import the document to open it in the app (for any new documents)
- Tap to open the document in the app, which will download it (for previously imported documents)
To sign offline, just download the document(s) you'll need to sign. When you're out of range or have a bad connection, select the document and it will open. You can fill out any necessary info, sign the document, etc. When you've finished, just select Done. You'll be able to save the document as a draft. Once you're back online, open the document to Finalize it.
Note that documents are only kept in local storage temporarily, usually, they are backed up on our servers until you open them. So you'll need to download them to your device in preparation for being offline, for example, if you are travelling to a remote job site, just import the document you'll need in advance to save it locally in preparation for offline signing.
This can also be useful in a situation when you have a weak connection. If the connection is too weak the app might have trouble finalizing a document or syncing a draft, but no worries! Just turn off your connection completely and use offline signing to save it as a draft locally!
