Google Workspace will soon have a new feature that allows individual business owners to generate electronic signatures in Google Docs.
New Google Workspace features for individual business owners
Google Docs’ new electronic signature feature will be integrated natively so users can quickly execute agreements from the Docs interface without having to change tabs or open a new application. It will take advantage of the same secure design infrastructure and built-in protections that Google currently uses to help protect and safeguard other privacy data.
Google helps individual business owners
Google said in a statement that the electronic signature feature has been implemented specifically to help individual business owners. It should help these entrepreneurs struggling to keep up with the contracts and agreements with customers that need to be signed, as they constantly change context and switch between different applications to get the job done.
The new feature will also allow business owners to collaborate on document changes directly to Google Docs, including comments and suggestions, without having to export the file to email a draft contract. Users will also be able to easily drag and drop signature and date fields into any branding document they create.
Google Individual Workplace for soloists
Google’s statement on eSignature explained, “Over the last few years, we’ve seen more people go their own way and turn their personal passions into business. These individual business owners, sometimes called‘ soloists ’, bring many hats as they run and grow their businesses: salesman, saleswoman, accountant, the list goes on.
“That’s why a year ago, we launched Google Individual Workspace as a new offering to help these sole proprietors grow their businesses with the familiar apps they’re probably already using in their personal lives. We’ve heard from customers that Google Workspace Individual helps them focus their time on doing what they love, such as meeting with clients and designing personalized services, and less time on recurring tasks such as scheduling appointments and sending emails. we’ve made a number of improvements to add even more value to customers, and today we’re announcing what’s to come next: electronic signatures directly in Google Docs ”.
More electronic signature functions
Additional aspects of the new eSignature to be able to request a signature once all comments and suggestions have been resolved, as easy as sharing a file in Google Drive. Users can also add signatures, that is, when a document is ready to be signed, the signer can easily add his signature without having to download it. Once the signature has been added, a complete PDF contract is emailed to both parties.
The eSignature will allow users to monitor and track the progress of pending signatures, as well as easily find completed and signed contracts. In addition, users will be able to create copies of contracts. This will be especially useful for signature workflows that need to be repeated regularly. The new process is streamlined by using created copies of existing contracts that can then be modified as needed.
The Google Docs electronic signature feature will soon be in beta for Google Workspace Individual users.
