Last month we talked about how SignNow is integrated with Microsoft Outlook Office 365, which helps users leverage the app from directly within Outlook to sign, send, and track attached documents without ever leaving their inbox. This has been a great addition to SignNow, especially with so many people moving to Office 365 these days, so it made perfect sense to go ahead and fire up an integration for Microsoft Word for Office 365 as well.
For the initial phase of our SignNow for Word integration, we wanted to emphasize the ease of use for people who use Word as their go-to word processing application. It was important to make it easier for people to access and use SignNow from places they spend a lot of time working in, which in this case is Microsoft Word.
So, how do you get started?
If you’re already running Word 2013 or later, just go to the Microsoft Office App Store and type in ‘SignNow’ in the search field in the upper right and press enter. You’ll see the SignNow for Word app pop up – just click on it and add the app to your Office account. Now you’ll be able to access SignNow from your apps while within Word.
- Easily insert text, dropdown, initial and signature fields into your Word document.
- Place fields among your existing text to be converted to SignNow fields upon upload.
- Name and save your Word document directly to any SignNow account at the press of a button.
- Make edits in Word and re-upload updated documents to SignNow.
- Simply copy and paste the fields in your Word document for easy placement.
Stay tuned for version two of SignNow for Word as we’re working to release more functionality to help users further leverage SignNow within Word – an update that will be available in the upcoming months.
