What are revisions?

Revisions are used to keep track of different versions of the same eSign document and are immutable. This means, that when the revision is sent out for signature, no more changes can be made to the PDF that the signatories see.

Changing a document that is out for signature

When a document is out for signature and changes need to be made to this document, you can start a new revision by selecting Start new revision from the panel on the right side . 

This will increase the revision number of the document and bring you back to the draft step.
Once a document is signed by all parties, no new revisions can be made.

When a new revision is in draft/review mode, older revisions are no longer accessible for signatories. They will recieve an email, once the new revision is send out for signature.

Signing

When a new revision is made, all the signatories need to sign again, even when they have signed a previous revision.

Footer of document

The revision number is printed in the footer that is automatically added to every page. This is to prevent any misunderstanding about the version of the document.
