Yes you can. You can add as many recipients as you wish, simply type any email address or phone number or choose from your phone's contact list.
Can I control the order of signatures?
At this point the flow is parallel, meaning that the app sends out the request for signature to all recipients at the same time.

Yes, they can!

Do my recipients need the OP.Sign app in order to sign?
The short answer is No.
We recomend to use the app in order to sign, but it is not a must!
Recipients without the app can open and sign the document on a standard web browser of an Android phone, iPhone or iPad...
In fact, mobile phones of all types as well as tablets and laptops with touch screens are supported.
How can I know the status of the documents I sent out for signature?
To learn about the progress of the signatures you requested, go to the document. You'll notice the list of signers at the bottom pane of the screen.
There will be an icon attached to each recipient with the following icons:
Checkmark - Signed
Clock - Pending signature
X - Declined to sign
In addition, by clicking on this area of the screen, the document status screen will open, giving you a more detailed view on each recipient, including date and time of action.
Send with Passcode
What is OP.Sign's Secure Share?
Secure Share is a secure and private way to send content sensitive documents to recipients.
Each file is encrypted on the server side and decrypted on the recipient's mobile phone.
The user receives a link to the content and a one time code in a separate message. The file is then decrypted on the client side using AES-256 key algorithm and the encryption key that was sent to the user separately.
How do my recipients receive my share invitation?
The recipients receive an email message containing the link to the document.
When clicking on the link and reaching the document, the user needs to click on the "give me passcode" button that generates a one time passcode that is sent in a new message to the same email address.
How long is the passcode valid for?
The passcode is valid for one time use only and can be applied only for
5 minutes after it is sent.
If a longer period of time passes before the user tries to open the link, a new passcode request needs to be sent.
