Roles in a document

When you have created a document, you're ready to send it to your colleagues and/or counterparties.
Every time you add a participant to your document, that person must be assigned a role that will determine what the person's rights and duties in the document will be.


The role list will differ for colleagues and counterparties.

Document roles
