Send with Template

Creates and sends a new SignatureRequest based off of the Template specified with the template_id parameter.


Universal Files Templates

HelloSign.SignatureRequestService.sendWithTemplate() can only be used with Templates that use the "Upload File Method".

To use a Universal Files Template (the "File Attached to Record Method"), either use HelloSign.SendWithTemplate.SendWithTemplate() or use HelloSign.SignatureRequestService.send(), building the entire signature request in Apex.

Class: HelloSign.SignatureRequestService

Return type: SignatureRequestResponse


sendWithTemplate()HelloSign__HelloSign_Signature_Request__c record is created immediately.
sendWithTemplate(Boolean createSigReqRecordImmediately)HelloSign__HelloSign_Signature_Request__c record is created later after the apex transaction if createSigReqRecordImmediately is set to false.

Acceptable Parameters

originObjectIdIdSet this if you want your HelloSign__HelloSign_Signature_Request__c record to populate the HelloSign__Related_Object_Id__c field. We will also attempt to populate the lookup field, HelloSign__Account__c for example if the Id is a Supported Object
test_modeBooleanThe signature request will not be legally binding when set to true.
allow_declineBooleanAllows signers to decline to sign a document.
template_idStringHelloSign__TemplateUUID__c field value from the HelloSign Template (ie. the HelloSign__Template__c object) record.

If the HelloSign__TemplateUUID__c field on your template record is empty, make sure the template's status is "Active" and that it's not a Universal Files template. See "Universal Files Template" note above.
titleStringThe title you want to assign to the SignatureRequest.
subjectStringThe subject in the email that will be sent to the signers.
messageStringThe custom message in the email that will be sent to the signers.
signing_redirect_urlStringThe URL you want the signer redirected to after they successfully sign.
signersMap<String, HelloSign.ServiceObjects.Signer>The list of recipients who will be required to sign.
ccsMap<String, HelloSign.ServiceObjects.CC>List of recipients who will receive a copy only.
custom_fieldsList<HelloSign.ServiceObjects.CustomField>Editable custom_fields are only supported for single signer requests or the first signer of ordered signature requests. If more than one signer is assigned to the unordered signature request, any editor value is ignored and the field will not be editable.
fileIdsList<Id>Accepted Id types are ContentDocument, Attachment, or Document.

Setting this will append additional files to the signature request.

Cannot use file_url when this is set.
file_urlList<String>Setting this will append additional files to the signature request.

Cannot use fileIds when this is set
signing_optionsHelloSign.ServiceObjects.SigningOptionsIf signing_options are not defined in the request, the allowed types will default to those specified in the account settings.
