Signing Group functionality similar what DocuSign has. Basically they have departments, for example Financial Aid (they are in eduction), and anyone in the department can sign off on the document. So similar to our Approval Groups, they want to assign a group of people to the signature field so that whomever sees it first can sign it.

We use the text fields to allow customers to fill out scoping questionnaires for us - currently, only one recipient can be assigned to those fields. Having a signing group would allow us to get input from an entire team instead of single contacts.
We ran into a use case with a similar requirement. I think it's very common that you send an offer to a customer with more than one contact person and one signature is enough to order and complete the document.

Assign multiple recipients to one signature field and consider the document complete when the document is signed by one recipient WITHOUT action from the others.

I'd also add here the ability to select a signer from a drop down of potential recipients in that department/group. And limiting the assignment of that field to only addresses in that signing group would be useful in reducing human error.

Ability to add multiple signers for one signature. If one of them signs, regardless of who it is, the doc is completed

Possibility to have multiple people assigned to the same role to be able to sign the document. In the client's use case, there are 3 managers, any of which can sign for the manager role.

Be able to create recipient groups. Some clients send contracts to the same group of people every time. Rather than having to add recipients one by one, this would allow for them to create a recipient group before hand, and select that group upon sending.

Example: signing order is enabled. The doc is sent out and signed by the recipient. Then the docs comes back to the sender, and the sender needs anyone within their account to be able to sign this document

It is great that you can put a signing order for individuals, but on my documents I often have individuals sign first for e.g. approval of a certain step and later after some other signatures by other individuals again e.g. for close-out. It would be great if the signing order could be tied to fields too.

Ability to (manually) accept 1 of 2 signatures and receive a certificate for the one. This can even state that the original had two signatures and only one signed officially.

Possibility to add a couple of recipients as the first/second/third one to receive a document. For example:
1 person first
then to 5 persons
then to 3 persons

One field for multiple signers.
