ESignInitialHere – XpressDox

Click here to learn about DocuSign integration, alternatively keep reading for more information about the ESignInitialHere() command.


This command is very similar to the ESignHere() command, except that it inserts an inserts an initial point into the document rather than a full signature. Once the document is initialed in DocuSign, those initials are placed in the position where the ESignHere() command is located in the template. The command also takes 4 parameters; the name and email address of the signatory as well as the size (in width and height) of the signature point. The width and height can be specified in either pixels, or inches.

Command structure:


Integrate Docusign into XpressDox Document Assembly Automation document templates

Add initial points for as many signatories as required, and as many initial points as required for each signatory. This will be the initial as specified in DocuSign.
Note that the ESignInitialHere() command should be placed in white text in the document, or at least the first chevron of the fillpoint should be. That will ensure that the XDINITIALHERE tag is hidden in the assembled document. This will be the same for the ESignHere and ESignDateSigned commands.
If the command is not in white text, you may experience a scenario such as the above. Note the commands pictured above where the first chevrons are colored in white text.
