Adding Fields & Signing Your Document

You can also share your document with others through the "Share Link" button, or simply click on "Copy Link" to get a copy of the link to the document that you've just signed:
You can disable the share link at any time by clicking "yes" next to the disable share link button, and this will prevent others from viewing the link that you shared:
Lastly, you can email the document that you've signed to yourself or someone else by clicking "send":
With your document signed and either sent or saved, you should be all set!
