Autofill the date field / variable with the date of signing the document
Auto-populate the date field / variable based on the date the document is signed
Lincoln Maurice commented
How is this not a thing?
Doug Ransom commented
Every other signing platform has this.

PandaDoc needs a new Document.SentDate variable. Use case: We create a document and the "Document.CreatedDate" variables is added in several locations. Other departments then edit the document and approve it days later. Before we send it, we must now manually edit all of the "Document.CreatedDate" variables to todays date. We either need a new variable called "Document.SentDate", or the ability to manually edit a Document.CreatedDate parameter in one location so all of the "Document.CreatedDate" variables update together.

For example, on an uploaded PDF where there is a spot for signature, name, and time of signing, can there be a way to input the time there of when the document is signed.
I'm a new user and I am BAFFLED to learn that this is not a standard thing, how is an e-signature to be considered legally binding if there isn't an audit trail and a user can just pick a date out of thin air. Please FIX this ASAP

272 votes and this feature is STILL not part of this very expensive software! It doesn't make sense for me or my client to type in the date of the agreement when it should be prepopulated based on the signing date. The signing date is a generated field within the document, how hard is it to allow this date to be placed anywhere in the document?

Don't understand why this isn't a feature. If it's because of competing products, just know every pair of socks has a hole where your foot goes. To auto-populate the date, the signer signed, is that basic.
Jason Richman commented
any updates here? this seems like an extremely common use-case for all subscription businesses and is causing some major headaches for our sales team.

Getting on towards 2 years since this seemingly basic feature was requested,
Any update please?
Todd Harrington commented
This is such a fundamental feature. It needs to be added or we need a workaround ASAP.
Kateryna Antonenko commented
When signing, a user is able to pick up a date of signing from the past/future/any date.
Please add option that allows choosing TODAY only.
Collin Cadmus commented
First time PD user after years of DocuSign, can't believe I have to ask customers to fill in a date field and it can't stamp automatically at time of signature.... please add this feature!
Aditya Kumar commented
There should be an option to prepopulate of signature date field with a non-editable feature
Jay Mehlman commented
Please do this ASAP
Fiona Campbell commented
Surprised this is not a standard feature given that you can do it in all other electronic signature solutions.
Nathan Polonski commented
System variable with the date signed by each role should be standard and not require a feature request. Please implement immediately.
Ian Ayers commented
A system variable for "today's date" -- populates on load of the doc. if multiple signers, it populates on each load of the doc.

This should be standard - should not be able to backdate a contract.
Ana Galvis commented
Surprise to see this is not a default, more work for the customer that nothing prepopulates but they have to write and select dates and company names across the contract. DocuSign has it and PandaDoc should have it too. Its a must have.
