eSignLive Developer: Updating Packages and Signature Types
In this blog, I will go over what you might have missed in the eSignLive Developer Community during the week of April 16th, 2018. Let's get straight to it.
Email Notifications on Package Updates
When creating transactions/packages in eSignLive, as part of the signing process, each recipient/signer will receive an email notification to sign the respective documents. In the eventuality that you need to make modifications to the transaction (e.g. update a recipient's last name), you will first need to change the status of the transaction back to draft. Once you've made the necessary changes, the next step is to re-send the transaction. Each recipient will receive a second email notification to sign the transaction. If you don't want this behavior, below are the steps you can take:
- Disable the activation email, for which recipients will no longer receive automatic emails from eSignLive when you are creating transactions. Note that the activation email can only be disabled with our support team (email@example.com).
- Use the email notify feature after creating your transactions to send the email notification to your recipients
Elsewhere, when making API calls to eSignLive, you will need to make sure that you have the correct API key associated with the right environment. For instance, if you login to https://sandbox.e-signlive.ca to retrieve your API key, then you will need to send your requests to https://sandbox.e-signlive.ca/api. Otherwise, an unauthorized error will be thrown upon sending your requests to eSignLive.
Finally, the signature type (capture or click-to-sign) have to be defined during the creation of the transaction. We do not allow recipients to choose how they wish to sign nor can they type-in their name to sign.
