Use two separate files. You can extract pages from a signed file and have the signature still remain in tact.
Thank you try67. Just to confirm, what you are suggesting is that I send it out to the first set of users.
After they all sign, I use the signed file, removing few pages and then send it out to the next set ?
Is there any way or setting in which I can make one send and yet achieve this ?
For example if I could keep my two files separate after the last internal signatory, I want to be able to just forward the second file for next steps.
If this is not possible, we will be doing what you stated.
No, that's not what I suggested. You have two options:
- Either use two completely different sets of files, one for each person that needs to sign them (what I suggested), with the pages they need to see.
- Or, send the same file, including all the original pages, to both people.
The key thing is that a signature applies to the whole file, always. Any modification of a signed file is forbidden (a bad person could for example be removing critical terms from a contract, changing the whole meaning). I recommend you keep the whole file for everyone. If confidentiality prevents that, the internal part needs two documents to be signed.
