💬 FAQs

Is SpotDraft’s 'Express Templates' feature compatible with Dropbox Sign integration?

No, the 'Express Templates' feature is exclusively supported with SpotDraft’s eSigning service.

Can I use different eSign services like Adobe Sign, Dropbox Sign, and DocuSign with SpotDraft?

Yes, SpotDraft supports integration with major eSign services including Adobe Sign, Dropbox Sign, and DocuSign. You have the flexibility to switch between these services to meet your eSigning needs. However, it's important to note that only one eSign service can be active at any time. To switch services, you need to update the integration settings within SpotDraft. Note. When you enable a new eSign integration (e.g., switching from Dropbox Sign to DocuSign), the previously active service (in this case, Dropbox Sign) will be automatically disabled. This ensures that your eSigning process remains streamlined and consistent within the platform, using the most recently activated eSign service.

Can I track the status of documents sent for eSignature in real time?

Yes, the SpotDraft Activity Log enables you to track the status of documents sent for eSignature in real-time, providing visibility into every action performed on the Dropbox Sign envelope.
