SharePoint will soon get eSignature sequential signing feature

Microsoft is developing a new feature, eSignature sequential signing for SharePoint, Feature ID 398990, which can empower users to specify the sequence of recipients for eSignature requests, facilitating a streamlined signing process.

Here is the description mentioned on the Microsoft 365 Roadmap site:

Sequential signing enables the creator of an eSignature request to specify the sequence of recipients. The document is first signed by the initial recipient in the sequence, then forwarded to the subsequent recipient for their signature. This process continues in the designated order until every recipient has added their signature. Once everyone has signed, the signed document is made available to all involved.

This process will simplify the workflow, allowing the eSignature request document creator to designate the order in which recipients will sign the document.

The document is sent to the first recipient in the sequence, who signs it and then forwards it to the next recipient. The process continues until all the recipients sign the document in the set order.

This feature was added to the SharePoint roadmap on June 5, 2024, and will roll out in June 2024. It will be available to all users worldwide on the web.

To conclude, this feature can be useful for SharePoint customers in streamlining their document signing processes, thereby enhancing productivity and improving collaboration.
