How to sign a document outside of Autenti document workflow?
In Autenti, you can sign using qualified signature in two ways: as part of the document flow and outside of it.
Signing a document outside of document flow is very useful when your contractors have qualified signatures not supported by AUTENTI, or when you want to sign a document already signed by someone.
Then just log in to the Autenti and go to the Classic Sign section. Then upload the document you want to sign, log in to your qualified electronic signature certificate and place the signature.
The document signed in this way will not be save on the Autenti platform. A signature card is not added to it. You can download it and send it to other people to signature, for example in an e-mail.
