Powered by eSignature by Dropbox Sign, the E-Signature feature in Greenhouse Onboarding helps your onboarding team automate essential paperwork and start new hires off on the right foot.
Create E-Signature templates and map signature fields to your team's onboarding forms and documents. You can also add counter signers and define rules for assigning documents automatically to specific new hires in their onboarding plan.
Create a new E-Signature template
From your Greenhouse Onboarding homepage, navigate to Settings > Onboarding Plan > E-Signature Templates.
On the E-Signature Templates page, click Add Template.
Use the Create E-Signature Template dialog box to give your new template a name.
Mark the Requires a different public facing name? checkbox if you want a different name to be visible to employees when they sign this document. Enter a public name in the resulting field.
Click Select Source File to upload a PDF of your E-Signature document.
Mark the checkbox for Requires a counter signer? if you'd like another employee in your organization to counter sign on this E-Signature document.
Use the Who should counter sign on this? field to select a specific employee or an onboarding team role (such as Manager or Onboarding Coordinator) as counter signer.
When you're done, click Next.
Configure signature fields
On the next page, you can map any of the following fields to your uploaded E-Signature document:
- Date signed
- Full name
- Job title
- Radio group
Use the Signers dropdown to select whether a field will be required for the new hire or the counter signer (if applicable).
Click and hold a field to drag it directly into your document.
Once you've placed a field in your document, you can then move it around, resize it, or set it as required.
When you're done mapping your E-Signature document, click Continue.
Add template rules
In the last step, you'll set an assign date and apply match rules to configure who should receive this E-Signature document and when.
Toggle the Add to Onboarding Plan switch on if you want this template to be assigned automatically to new hires when they receive their onboarding plan.
Use the Assign Date dropdown to assign this template on the new hire's start date or a custom date relative to their start date.
Use the dropdown fields for Department matches, Location matches, Employment Status matches, and Other Criteria matches to specify which new hires should be assigned this template.
When you're finished, click Save.
Your new E-Signature template will now be automatically assigned to matching new hires on the schedule you've configured.
You can edit this template as needed from the E-Signature Templates page in Settings.
