Microsoft SharePoint eSignature service will soon expand to the UK, Canada, and select European countries. It enables requesting eSignatures on PDFs via SharePoint online, with signed documents securely saved back to SharePoint. Rollout begins mid-August 2024 and should complete by end of September 2024.

Microsoft SharePoint eSignature allows users to easily request eSignatures on a PDF document via SharePoint online. Signers can easily add their electronic signature. Signed documents are saved securely back to SharePoint.

When this will happen:

We will begin rolling out to the UK, Canada, and the European countries in this message in mid-August 2024 and expect to complete by end of September 2024.

How this will affect your organization:

Before this rollout: Users only had third-party (non-Microsoft) plugin options for eSignatures in SharePoint.

After the rollout: If your region is now supported, you will be able to configure and use SharePoint eSignature in SharePoint.

If you have SharePoint Premium configured before this rollout, you will need to turn on this feature.

If you sign up for SharePoint Premium after the rollout, the feature will be on by default, but you can turn it off.
