Once a document is fully signed and executed, all parties invited will receive a confirmation email linking to their copy of the agreement. To download the agreement:
Open the email and click the "View document" button. (Alternatively, for Concord Users, simply click on the document from your Documents page.)
Click on or hover your cursor over the download icon at the top left corner of the document
- Select "Download as PDF". You may also download the document as a Word document, however, please note that any e-Signatures are only present on the PDF file.
Note: Signatures only appear on the .pdf version when all parties have signed. If you download a .pdf version of a contract that is Status: Pending the download will not contain a signature block.
Once you download the PDF, you will notice that this version contains some additional data applied to the contract to make the eSignature binding, like the Document ID. You will find the contract's Document ID at the bottom of each page of the .pdf file. The Document ID reinforces the security of downloaded contracts as it links each page to the contract's "Audit Trail".
This signature block will display information to make the signature binding including the document ID, Signature ID, Signature Date, IP Address of the Signing party, and the Signing Party's email address all to ensure that the eSignature is legally binding.
*You will always have access to your contracts and their related history through your Concord account, eliminating the need for paper documents.*
