HelloSign Announces eSignature API Feature Updates

HelloSign, an eSignature Platform, has announced several feature updates to the HelloSign API. The HelloSign API can be used by developers to integrate document e-signing, embedded signing, auto-fill documents, major eSignature laws compliance, and other HelloSign platform capabilities with applications. The API updates include features designed to improve the experience of developers, requesters, and signers.

According to the press release, the API updates announcement represents HelloSign's commitment to innovation via continued support and improvements to the HelloSign API. Last July, the company announced the public beta of an eSignature API dashboard for developers. Developers can view detailed information about API usage using the dashboard.

Updates to the HelloSign API include (but not limited to):

Updates for Developers

  • Improved coordinate system for specifying field locations
  • An auto-generated email to developers alerting them of API errors
  • Unlimited templates for testing

Updates for Requesters

  • White labeling for embedded and non embedded signature requests
  • The API Request limit per hour has been increased
  • Data validation — Specific rules can now be set to each text field in documents

Updates for Signers

  • Added translation support to the signer page
  • Custom redirect capability — Signers can now be redirected to a custom website after signing a document
  • Elimination of rendering documents into images

"Investing in thoughtful and deliberate innovation of our API is a top priority for us as we see more and more businesses wanting a seamless experience for their customers to sign documents online," says Neal O'Mara, Co-founder and CTO at HelloSign, in the press release. "HelloSign's agile development practices combined with our unparalleled focus on user and developer experience make it possible for businesses to take advantage of the many benefits of eSignatures and to innovate quickly and painlessly."

The HelloSign API is REST based and there are SDKs available in Java, Python, Ruby, PHP, and NodeJS. Developers interested in using the HelloSign API can find more information on the HelloSign Developers Website.
