Eversign is all about boosting your business workflow and efficiency, and getting day-to-day tasks like scanning, printing and manually signing out of the way.
Hidden Tags is a feature that allows text to be used in documents as a placeholder for signature, initial and other tags for a particular signer.
A hidden tag is a text element wrapped in square brackets
[ ] containing a series of options in a specific order, all divided by
| symbols. You can specify a total of 9 options, such as field type, signer ID, required/non-required, field label, field identifier, and more.
Example: Here's a hidden tag using all available options:
In the example above we are creating a required 125x50px text field, prefilled with the value "Paul McSign", with "letters_only" field validation enabled. Additionally, the field label is set to "Name" and the field identifier is set to "name_1".
