How does eSign work?

Our eSign feature allows you to personally sign PDF documents directly in AXEL Go.

You can sign PDF documents stored in your Secure Storage or retrieved in a Secure Fetch. If you want to request an eSignature instead, you can send a document via Private Share and toggle on the Request eSignature option. When the recipient opens the share, they’ll have the option to sign.

There are two ways to sign a PDF document – On Desktop or Mobile. If you select Desktop, you’ll be able to trace your signature using your cursor. We’ll walk you through how to do it on Mobile below.

How to Sign on Mobile

NOTE: Every time you sign and save the document, a new file version is created and saved in the same location where the PDF file is present.
