I am Ready to Sign

What the button for I am Ready to Sign means

ready-2

Whenever a contract matches on both sides, every signing party (including the owner if he is required to sign) will have a button enabled at the bottom of the contract called I am ready to sign.

After the button is clicked, the owner and manager(s) receive a notification that "[Contract Name] is ready to sign".

The button action does not result in any other process change. A user who has edit rights can still edit terms after pressing the button. This only serves as communication from the signatory to inform the owner/manager that signing process can be triggered.

Once the I am ready to sign button is enabled, the owner/manager can trigger the signing process by clicking the signature icon that appears below the top menu bar.
