    Hi Josh, happy to help. Read-and-sign Consent Forms should go under My Account > Settings > Client Portal > Shared Documents and Files > + Consent Forms, downloadable PDFs can go in the same place, and fillable Questionnaires and Assessments can be added and edited under My Account > Settings > Notes and Forms. 

    Let me know if you have any additional questions about this, or anything else SimplePractice. I'm here to help.

    How do I upload my own form that I would like new clients to sign to the client portal?

    Thanks, Kate

    Hi Kate, to upload a form for clients to read and sign, go to My Account > Settings > Client Portal > Shared Documents and Files and click +Consent Form. Then, copy in the text that you'd like to include, and click Save. You'll then be able to share this new Consent Form with clients through the Share button on their Overview page.

    Hello! Is there a way to upload PDF documents for client to sign electronically on the Shared Documents and Files section when +consent form?

    Hi Mallory, no there isn't. In order for your client to electronically sign a document in SimplePractice, it needs to be recreated as one of our templates. You can copy and paste the contents of your PDF document in Settings > Client Portal > Shared Documents and Files > + Consent Document. If you attach the PDF Document to the Read-Only Files section, you can send the document to your client through the Client Portal and they'll be able to view and download it, but they won't be able to sign it electronically.
