The e-sign provider, Signable, has made changes to the way candidates navigate from one contract field to another. A help text section has been added to the Signable contract email received by candidates.
Signable release date: 24th September 2020
Reason for the Change
Previously, only required (mandatory) contract fields were displayed when using the “next step” button during the e-sign process of contract envelope documentation. Since Signable’s release, optional contract fields are also displayed when using the “next step” button. This encourages candidates to fill in optional contract fields. It also means that filling in contract information takes slightly longer.
The help text section in contract emails will help candidates understand the new navigation functionality.

Signable has added optional contract fields to the “Next” navigation button.
What is the “next step” navigation button?
A candidate can select the "next step" button to navigate straight to the next field within the contract documents. Alternatively, contract fields can be selected with a cursor and by using the page scroll functionality.

What is the “Item to complete” section?
The section displays how many contract fields are left for the candidate to fill in. This section includes only required (mandatory) fields and updates automatically with each field filled in. Once all fields are completed, the section changes to "All items completed".
