Supported fields

The following form fields are supported in text tag creation:


Note: Radio buttons and checkboxes can be created only using the definition tags, which are explained in the definition section.

Options and usage

Signer index

The signer index starts from one. The first one represents the first signer of the document. When two or more signers are in the same order, it is still considered as index, and the index for the two signer orders will be different. This field property is required.



The fields required can be marked with the following syntax, "*" or "single empty space".

{{text|1| |}} 


The label or placeholder of the fields can be added with the following syntax.

{{text|1|*|Enter name}} 

Date format

The date format of the editable date fields can be added with the following syntax.

{{editdate|1|*|yyyy,MMM dd}}

The date format only supports editable date fields. This editable date format value is optional; The default value is yyyy,MMM dd.

Supported formats

MM/dd/yyyy, dd/MM/yyyy, dd-MMM-yyyy, MMM-dd-yyyy, MMM dd,yyyy, dd MMM,yyyy, yyyy,MMM dd, yyyy/MM/dd, dd-MM-yyyy, MM-dd-yyyy, and yyyy-MM-dd

Field ID

Field name or ID to identify this specific field within the document. The field name is used to identify the values provided during signing while the data gets exported from the service using the get properties API.

The following are the supported characters:

A-Z, a-z, 0-9, hyphen, and underscore

Note: The field id should be unique, and the value should not be repeated for other fields.


The height and width of the fields can be measured with the text tags width and height. The form field width can be increased by adding more white space at the beginning of the text tag immediately after the "{{" or at the end of the text tag just before the "}}" to text tags. The form field height can be increased by increasing the font size of the text tags.

{{sign|1|* }}
{{@tag1 }}

The field size can be overridden with the pixel values of height and width. This property will override the spacing width and font size with the provided pixel value, and it will be explained in this link.

Note: In order to skip an option, simply leave it empty without making any changes to the order of other options. A field with a field identifier but without a field label would look like this:

{{text|1| |signer_1_name}} 

Hide text

BoldSign will not remove text tags from the document. So in order to hide the text tags from the document, we recommend using text tags color that matches the background color (probably white on white).
