Why you should use DocuSign over SkySlope's DigiSign for digitally signing documents
After signing digital documents over the last 2 years using both, I have to say I really hate DigiSign and really love DocuSign, for the following reasons:
- PDFs: I can't (meaning: I refuse to) sign a document without at least skimming it and understanding it. I need to mark it up as I go. I use Foxit Reader in Linux Ubuntu (it is a cross-platform program thankfully, and runs in Windows, Mac, and Linux) to digitally highlight, underline, and take notes inside PDFs. This means I need a PDF of the exact document I'm about to sign, in the exact same page order, before signing. Here's the differences between DocuSign and DigiSign:
- DocuSign: I click the "Download PDF" button at the top of the page, download and take notes on the PDF, then go back online and sign. I don't have to bother anyone at all to ask for a PDF copy.
- SkySlope's DigiSign: no option whatsoever to download a PDF unt
