Signing methods

Electronic signatures are a convenient, cost-effective, and secure method for obtaining signatures on electronic documents. E-signatures hold legal validity in most countries worldwide, carrying equal legal weight and effect as traditional ink or handwritten signatures. 

Oneflow provides two types of electronic signatures: Simple Electronic Signatures (SES) and Advanced Electronic Signatures (AdES).

Signing methods we offer

  • Electronic IDs (BankID etc.)
  • Standard e-signature.
  • SMS-verification.
  • Handwritten signature.
  • Manual signing.

Electronic Identification (AdES)

This method allows you and your counterpart to sign your documents using electronic ID. 

Standard e-signature (SES)

The default signature setting in Oneflow is the standard e-signature. This is the most commonly utilized form of electronic signatures, allowing you to sign with a simple click of a button through a secure, encrypted link.

SMS-verification (SES)

The recipient will receive an SMS containing a 6-digit code, which they will use to verify their identity during the document signing process. To utilize this signing method, you need to input the recipient's phone number and have the SMS extension activated in your Oneflow account.

Handwritten signature (SES)

A handwritten signature, often referred to as a wet ink signature, is suitable for cases where you prefer the signatory to provide their signature directly on the same device they are using. With this method, you can physically draw or write your signature, and it carries the same legal validity as a standard electronic signature (SES).
To create this signature, you can either use the mouse pointer to draw it manually or type your name and select the desired font style for the signature.

Manual signing

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

It is important to remember that the system will not generate legally binding electronic signatures for the document.
  1. Go to a document.
