Signing methods

At Oneflow, we provide five signing methods for your contracts:

  • Standard e-signature
  • SMS-verification 
  • BankID
  • Handwritten signature
  • Manual signing

Standard e-signature

Standard e-signature is the default setting for Oneflow verification and signing. When you click Send in a contract, your counterparty receives an e-mail with a unique secure link to the contract. You can sign the contract from the application using the green Sign button.


(To enable this signing method, you must be an administrator)
If you select SMS as the signing method, your Signatory counterparties will receive an SMS with a 6-digit code, and they will use it to confirm their identity when signing the contract.

Of course, this requires that you provide a recipient's phone number and that you have SMS enabled on your Oneflow account. Please, read more about enabling SMS here.


(To enable this signing method, you must be an administrator)

This method allows you and your counterparty to sign Oneflow contracts using BankID. Signing with BankID will cost 2 SEK per signature (in Sweden).

  1. Go to the Admin tab > Account > Extensions. 
  2. Scroll to Electronic IDs and make sure it's enabled. Then you can choose which BankID(s) you want to activate.

The BankID signing method is only available for user with Swedish, Norweigan, Danish or Finnish bank accounts.

Handwritten signature

(To enable this signing method, you must be an administrator)

The Handwritten Signature method allows you to draw or write your personal signature in any contract. This method has the same legal validation as a regular electronic signature. The signature is made by using the mouse pointer option or by typing in the name and then choosing which font the signature should have.

To enable handwritten signature:

  1. Click on the Admin button at the bottom left of Oneflow, then on account -> extensions.
  2. Browse through the various extensions to Handwritten Signature and Enable.

When you choose Handwritten signature as the signing option for a participant in a contract and they sign, it will look like this:

Manual signing

Oneflow does offer manual signing, and you may still use the benefits of the Oneflow archive and contract life cycles.


It is important to remember that the system will not generate legally binding electronic signatures for the contract.

To sign your contract manually:

  1. Go to your contract, click the three dots menu in the top-right corner > Mark as signed.
