e-Signature Notifications are the emails that accompany any signable documentation that are sent through Eploy. As you are unable to edit the content of the emails when sending and the reminders are automatic, it is imperative that you set up the e-Signature notifications correctly.
To begin configuring e-Signature Notifications, you can access this within Admin – Email Templates – e-Signature Notifications.
This will allow you to see the existing available e-Signature notifications or create new ones. Due to the content and available merge field options available, you will need to ensure that you have different templates for merging to Candidate, Company or Placements.
To edit, simply click into the title of the notification or click New to create a new template.
