Whether you use our web application or integrate our solution into your core business applications, Conga Sign is easy to use for signers, senders, and developers. Discover our product features to get up and running with eSignatures.
Sending documents for eSignature is simple with Conga Sign. There are a number of options available from the time a document transaction is sent to your signers until the eSignature process is completed.
- File type support
Conga Sign supports the following file formats: .doc, .pdf, .odt, .rtf, and .txt.
- Standard and custom fields
Users can easily sign and initial documents in all the right places. Use standard fields to collect the following information from your signers: signatures, initials, names, titles, signing date, company names, and more. You even have the ability to create custom fields and reuse them to capture specific data from your customers.
- Advanced form fields
Design advanced form fields including checkboxes, radio buttons, drop-down lists, text fields, label fields, and more.
- Signer attachments
Prompt your signers to attach supporting documentation during the signing process, such as a photo of a driver's license or additional .pdf documents.
- Retention and archiving
Once the eSignature process is completed, documents can be pushed downstream and archived in your organization’s content management system or other preferred system of record solution for long-term storage and retention.
- Additional documents
Include auxiliary documents to your transaction, such as legal disclosures or terms and conditions for your signers. Signers can easily view, accept, and sign these additional documents.
- File type support
Conga Sign lets you define workflows and gives you control over every step in the process to optimize the customer experience and ensure high completion rates. Build the optimal eSignature process and signer experience based on your business needs.
- Serial and parallel signing
Distribute documents to multiple signers and set the signing order. You have the option to let users sign one after the other or in parallel.
Templates are ideal to use for your frequently used documents. Set up signature and field placements to create reusable templates that reduce the number of steps needed to get documents out for eSignature.
Layouts are helpful for users who frequently send forms that include signature blocks and data fields which remain in the same location throughout the document. Layouts act as a blueprint and can be saved and applied to future documents with the same format and field requirements.
- Document visibility
The document visibility feature allows you to choose which documents your recipients can view and sign. Designate individual document access in a single transaction with multiple documents, instead of having to create separate transactions for each recipient. What's more, this feature saves you from having to process documents your recipients don’t need to see, and it ensures that documents with sensitive information are viewed only by your intended recipients.
- Text tags
Text tags eliminate the need to manually place signatures and fields into your documents. By adding text tags to your document, after uploading to Conga Sign, every text tag is automatically replaced with the signature and fields at the right location.
- Recipient permissions
Define the action a recipient needs to take (like signing), allowing them to change signer or simply approving a document. Conga Sign lets you customize a specific recipient workflow to meet your business needs.
- Reminders and expirations
Set up automated email reminders and expirations for your recipients to complete the signing process on time. Reminders and expirations are powerful features to help you keep track of time-sensitive documents sent to your signers.
- Conditional fields
Hide or reveal data that needs to be captured based on the signer’s response to specific fields. Use if/then conditional logic in documents to ensure signers only see the relevant fields based on their selections.
- Optional signatures
Place optional signatures in your documents to give signers the flexibility to complete a transaction without having to complete every signature field in the document.
- Serial and parallel signing
Identity verification and authentication
Explore Conga Sign’s robust and flexible set of identity verification and authentication options to add an extra layer of security to validate your signer’s identity when conducting transactions online.
Email authentication is the default option Conga Sign uses to verify your recipient’s identity. The identity of your intended signer is verified using their secure name and password when logging in to their email account. The signer simply clicks the link to access the document they need to sign.
- Login credentials
The signer is authenticated through the sender’s system using a unique username and password. This could be an online banking portal, a government services portal, or even a Conga Sign account.
Verify your signer’s identity via a secure one-time SMS code sent to their mobile phone number. The signer enters the code into the login page and gains access to the documents that require signature.
Present authentication questions to your signer. These are commonly referred to as shared secrets since you need to formulate questions based on information you already have on file about your customer, such as the last 4 digits of their social security number or an application ID number. If the signer provides the correct answer, they are verified as the correct recipient of the transaction.
- Government ID verification
Verify unknown individuals remotely using government-issued IDs (e.g., driver’s license, passport, etc.). Conga Sign leverages digital identity verification to capture, extract, and analyze ID data to authenticate government-issued identity documents.
- Biometric comparison
Signers can use the built-in camera on their mobile device to take a selfie and compare it with the photo on their government-issued ID document (see above). Pair with liveness detection (e.g., blinking, speaking, head tilting) to ensure the photo captured is from a real human being. Signers can be verified in real-time within seconds.
- Knowledge-Based Authentication (KBA)
Leverage third-party ID verification services such as Equifax to present the signer with a list of out-of-wallet questions in real time. Conga Sign captures the responses and presents them back to the service provider for confirmation of the customer’s identity and approval to provide access to the documents for signing.
- Government smart cards and derived credentials
Electronic signature forms and documents using a digital certificate stored on a smart card, such as a Common Access Card (CAC) or a Personal Identity Verification (PIV) card. This provides two- and even three-factor authentication with something the user knows (the PIN for their smart card), something the user has (the card), and sometimes even a biometric identifier (something the user is).
- Digital certificates
Leverage digital certificates issued by third-party Trust Service Providers (TSPs) or by your own public key infrastructure (PKI). We support digital certificates stored locally on the user’s system, electronic ID (eID) cards, remote digital certificates stored in the cloud, and hardware tokens to authenticate the identity of signers.
Optimized signing experience
The signing process should be intuitive and easy for your signers. Discover the different ways Conga Sign offers an optimized signing experience anywhere, anytime, and across multiple devices.

Run reports on transactions, signers, and overall activity in your Conga Sign account
- Bulk send
Bulk send saves you time when you need to send documents to multiple recipients for signature. This feature helps eliminate the need to prepare individual transactions. Start by importing your list of recipients, prepare documents for signature, and press send. Your recipients receive a unique copy of the document to eSign.
- Fast track
Fast track creates a dedicated URL for your transaction that can be embedded into your website or secure portal. Zero integration or development is required. This feature is ideal for high volume, repeatable processes such as NDAs and standard contracts.
Security, compliance, and audit
Some of the world’s most security-conscious organizations trust Conga Sign for their eSignature needs. Security is our priority. We take the necessary steps and have safeguards to provide a secure solution, meet industry-standard security requirements, and ensure that data is safe at all times.
- Tamper-sealed documents
Conga Sign uses advanced digital signature technology, an encryption method, to tamper seal documents after each signature and visibly invalidate documents if any changes are made. This built-in security guarantees the integrity of the document and helps protect you and your customers from fraudulent behavior.
- Single, unified audit trail
When legal disputes arise involving electronic transactions, Conga Sign creates the best possible evidence. Conga Sign is the only solution in the market to capture a single audit trail of the entire agreement process—from identity verification and authentication to eSignature. This includes the ID and authentication check method used and the detailed results of the verification. As a result, you get a complete picture of the transaction with strong identity assurance to demonstrate compliance.
- Embedded audit trail
Conga Sign also embeds details about the eSignature transaction within the signed .pdf, including who signed, the date and time of signing, and the digital certificate used to digitally sign the document. The digital signature (hashing and encryption) allows verification of the validity of the document from the time of signing to ensure non-repudiation of the eSignedrecord. Easily verify the signed document by clicking the signature block. This opens the audit trail and automatically verifies both signer authentication and document validity.
- Document flattening
Conga Sign removes any dynamic content from the document before processing. As a result, any form field used as a vehicle to replace content via overlay is stripped from the document, and the attack will be automatically neutralized.
- Cloud security
Security-conscious organizations are looking for assurance that the vendors they work with meet the necessary security requirements. Conga Sign is hosted in state-of-the-art SOC 2, ISO 27001, PCI DSS, FedRAMP and HIPAA compliant data centers around the world. Conga Sign meets additional security control and compliance requirements, including: ISO/IEC 27001, ISO/IEC 27017, ISO/IEC 27018, SOC 2 Type II, Skyhigh, HIPAA, FedRAMP, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC), and National Security Agency’s National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP).
- Key Management Service (KMS)
A signed document and its related data is encrypted by Conga Sign at all times using state-of-the-art encryption technology. Conga Sign follows security best practices by offering a best-in-class KMS that includes shared and private key management options.
- Virus scanning of attachments
Documents uploaded as attachments by signers are immediately scanned for malware. If a malicious document is detected, Conga Sign blocks the document and prevents signers from uploading it in the signing workflow.

ID verification and authentication options are fully integrated with Conga Sign, enabling your signers to verify their identities prior to accessing agreements.
Secure access to your documents with strong ID verification and authentication
Conga Sign offers a range of ID verification and authentication options, so you can get documents electronically signed with confidence. You have the flexibility to choose the level of security you need.
We help ensure your agreements are safely accessed and signed only by the individuals they’re intended for with options including SMS, Q&A, KBA, and government ID checks.
Enhanced authentication using government photo IDs
For the highest level of signer identification, Conga Sign’s ID verification option quickly determines whether the signer’s government photo ID is authentic.
Allow your signers to take a photo of their passport, driver’s license, or other government-issued IDs directly from their mobile device. Machine learning algorithms analyze the authenticity and validity of the photo ID to determine whether the ID document is genuine.
Ensure signers are who they say they are
For a higher level of security and confidence, pair ID verification with the biometric comparison option. Signers are asked to take a selfie with the camera on their mobile device. Advanced algorithms extract biometric data from the image and compare it to the image on the authenticated ID document to determine whether the signer is genuine.
Liveness detection involves the signer performing an action, for example blinking or moving their head, to prove that they are genuinely present and that a static image or video is not used fraudulently.
Add a layer of security to your consumer-facing transactions
Conga Sign generates a one-time PIN that is sent to the signer’s phone. The signer enters the PIN into a login page and gains access to the documents that require signatures.
Present challenge questions to your signer before they can view documents
These questions are referred to as shared secrets, because the sender needs to know something about the signer to create the questions. The questions and answers are known by both parties and pre-selected ahead of time. Common questions include the last four digits of a Social Security Number (SSN) or an application ID number. The signer must correctly answer one or more questions before being granted access to the electronic documents that require signature.
Dynamic "out-of-wallet" questions to prove a signer’s identity
Conga Sign can connect to third-party credit bureaus to obtain a multiple-choice questionnaire that is generated on-the-fly and presented to the signer. These out-of-wallet questions are generated in real-time, making it difficult for anyone other than the actual user to answer correctly.
Use personal digital certificates to verify the identity of signers
Conga Sign can leverage local and remote digital certificates issued by trusted authorities and partners to verify the identity of signers at the point of signing. When using a personal digital certificate to eSign a document, Conga Sign verifies the certificate’s status, and the action requires a PIN or password to complete the signing process.
When using a digital certificate issued by a qualified TSP, this creates a Qualified E-Signature (QES) in accordance with the requirements of the European Union’s eIDAS regulation.
