Step 5: Fill out Spreadsheet. Once the spreadsheet has opened, you will see columns that have the information required from the template filled in.

Fill out the spreadsheet with your signers information. In this example, you will see the same email plus a number as an example but yours should all be unique emails and information. 

Each row is a unique packet that will be sent to the email that you put in. For example, row 5 will have no idea that row 4 or row 6 received this document to sign.

Step 6: Save the spreadsheet and upload it. Save the spreadsheet locally, in a place you will be able to find it later. 

Then go back to ContractWorks and upload the spreadsheet. You can do this by selecting Browse or by dragging and dropping your spreadsheet into the dashed line box. 

Once you have uploaded it, a green box will appear saying "Upload Successful". You can then select Next. 

If you don't receive an "Upload Successful" box you will see a red error box. Fix what is causing the error and try to upload again. Please reach out with any questions you may have about errors.
