eSignature additions aplenty

Our previous edition promised that eSignature enhancements were on the way.

And since we’re all about keeping our word, we’re happy to report that linked fields and custom validation for text fields are now available for all to enjoy.

Now you can link fields within a document, as well as validate any type of data required from your recipients.

Small but Mighty

Lower-profile, yet highly delightful feature updates

Submitted for your approval

We’re introducing big improvements to your approval workflow.

Firstly, we’ve made it possible to change an approver while a document is in draft status.

And secondly, in an important noise-reduction development, any document sender can select one specific person among an approval group to notify about their approval responsibility — no need to blanket the whole crowd with notifications.

eSign documents directly within Chrome

Our new eSignatures for Chrome extension is here, and it’s a real wonder.

After you drag and drop your PDF or Word file into it, the extension automatically opens PandaDoc with your documents ready to be eSigned.

Simply add one or more signature fields and you’re good to go. It’s possibly the most brilliant thing since the bread-slicer. Possibly.

Quarterly billing comes to Advanced Quotes

Weekly. Monthly. Annually. Why not quarterly?

Thanks to requests from our customers, Advanced Quotes now has a new billing period option — it starts with “q”, occurs four times a year, and you know the rest.
