How to Create Online Form Links or Embedded Online Forms

One of the best things about electronic signatures is flexibility – flexibility to create, flexibility to send, flexibility to sign, and flexibility to store digital PDF documents. Because we understand that different signing options are necessary and often preferred, flexibility is at the core of Foxit eSign’s design, this is why we offer multiple ways to provide documents to signatories for completion.

Many businesses choose to provide signing capabilities through URLs or embedded online forms. With URLs, users can generate signing links and place them directly on their website or send via email. Alternatively, pre-generated code allows easy embedding of forms in an iFrame directly on websites or applications. Online forms are a simple solution for when mass signatures need to be gathered.

Online form code or URL links can both be automatically generated from any reusable PDF document in a few clicks. Additionally, online forms provide complete branding functionality, including the capability to customize signing to your website theme.

Below, we’ll review the processes for creating both URL signing and embedded online forms using templates in two ways: Quick Online Links perfect for single signer templates and Online Form Creation for customized and reusable forms.
