About the text & PDF files

  • When you upload a PDF, you will be asked if you wish to include this form as part of the standard intake forms. Please uncheck this box if you do not. You can always check off any of the forms you wish to include when sending the intake.
  • Text files (that you build in SP by clicking "Add New") are for signature only when you share those documents with clients.  
  • PDF files that you share can be downloaded, but not filled out or signed by clients.
