    We’re using document extraction to populate a Signature Date field with the date of signing via naming a form field with something like this: [Signer1.Capture1.label1.Date]. We’re not able to use any template as we need to pre-fill client-specific values to the [pdf] document everytime which becomes readonly when presented to the client during signing ceremony.

    Now, we have a new requirement to dynamically populate a separate date field by adding a fixed # of days to signature date, which is to reflect right after signing. Is there a similarly auto-extraction approach (or API means) to achieve this?

    Forgot to mention that we’re still in classic environment.

    Hi Chris,

    You could use Position Extraction in conjunction with Document Extraction to extract a specific form field in your PDF and position a label field populated with whatever date you wish.

    Hi Haris,

    Thanks for the inputs, will look more into Position Extraction. However, still not sure how that will allow me to dynamically populate a date field based on the actual Signing completion date without re-uploading the document?

    Ah yes, I misunderstood your initial post. If you’re looking to populate a field after the signing date has been completed, there isn’t much you can do since documents are not editable after signing has started.
