With in-person signing, you can use the same simple e-signing process of Formstack Sign for participants that are in the same location as you. The process is simple:

Enabling  In-person signing:

Log in to your account, go to the Account tab then to My Preferences. You will see a checkbox called Enable In-Person Signing. Check this box and the feature will be enabled. (Pro accounts only)

Using In-person signing:

Upload a document like normal and proceed to add participants. Add your participant(s), entering the name and the email address (email address is not required if doing in-person signing). You will see a checkbox labeled In-Person Signer. Check this box if the participant is going to be signing in-person. 

Continue to place fields and click send as normal.

Signing an In-person document:

When it is time for the customer to sign; On your tablet, open your web browser and go to the signing "kiosk" at

There are two ways you can have the participant(s) access their document to sign;

Option 1:

Log in using your email address and password and check the box next to Group Login. 

This will display a number pad that the participant can enter the document code. 

Document code example:

You simply enter the document code and the proper document will be displayed. Follow the steps to get the document signed.

Option 2:

Log in with your username and password, leave Group Login unchecked.

Once logged in you will see a list of all of your documents that are waiting for in-person signing.

Once signed, the document will be removed from the "kiosk" queue!
