Egnyte Sign Overview and Administration


Egnyte Sign allows you to send an electronic signature request for a document stored in Egnyte.  Recipients sign in their browser and a legally binding signed copy is saved back to Egnyte as a digitally signed PDF. 

Key Capabilities of Egnyte Sign include:

  • Legally binding electronic signature process
  • Sending requests to anyone with an email address
  • Parallel or sequential signature workflows
  • Add signature, initial, text, and date fields 
  • PDF digital signatures with an Adobe Approved Trust List (AATL) certificate with Long Term Validation (LTV) to ensure data integrity
  • A signature dashboard to track sent and received signature requests

Egnyte Sign offers several configuration options for administrators.  Access these options in Collaborate Settings in the Configuration > Signatures screen.


The following settings are available:



Permission By default, any Administrator or Power User in your domain can send signature requests.  To limit who can send requests, choose the Specific Groups option and add up to 10 Egnyte groups.  Any Admin or Power User in those groups will be allowed to send a signature request.
