Whether you’re a nonprofit needing more volunteer registrations or an HR department wanting to simplify employee form submissions, providing universal or commonly requested forms readily and accessibly is key.
AssureSign’s Static Links feature empower nonprofits, HR departments and your business to make registrations, inquiries, form submissions, and other universal processes available to your audience on a self-service basis.
What is AssureSign’s Static Links Feature?
When enabled, AssureSign Professional and Enterprise customers can generate a Static Link (URL/link) within the Simple Setup > Template environment. You can then embed that URL/link onto your organization’s intranet or website or send the link to signers by email or by leveraging AssureSign’s Bulk Send function.
Signers can click the link to complete/sign your forms and documents. Once submitted, the completed forms are sent back to you (or the document originator) and individually stored with the rest of your “Completed Documents” in the AssureSign Portal.
How Can I Activate and Start Using Static Links?
To activate the Static Links feature, you must currently be an administrator on an AssureSign Professional or Enterprise account (AssureSign Business customers: contact our customer success team to learn how you can upgrade to activate the Static Links feature!)

To generate a static link for one of your existing templates, navigate to the template’s editing environment (AssureSign portal main page > select the “VIEW TEMPLATES (SIMPLE SETUP)” option from the main menu > click “EDIT” on the extreme right-hand side of the desired template).
Once you’re in editing mode, follow these steps:

- In the “Redirect URL” field, enter the website signers will be redirected to once they’ve finished the signing process (e.g. https://www.yourbusiness.com)
- Once you’ve adjusted the options and settings as desired, click the “VALIDATE” button and wait for the “Validation Successful” message to appear.
- You can now copy the Sharable link (or iFrame code) and embed the link on your business’s website, intranet, email message, or wherever desired! (Click the ‘SAVE CHANGES” button when finished)
