Mapping Lead Fields to PDF
To begin mapping your PDF document open the Manage Applications page from the administration menu (E-Signature > Import PDFs):
When the page opens, click the Mappings button on the document you wish to map:

Unmapped fields are shown in grey color in the PDF and the mapped fields are shown in green color both on the lead and in the PDF.
You can now begin mapping your document by dragging lead fields to PDF fields.
The following types of mappings are supported:
- Lead text field to PDF text field
- Lead checkbox to PDF checkbox
- Lead dropdown to PDF text field
- Lead dropdown option to PDF checkbox
You can also autofill the sales rep fields in the PDF with the contact information of the sales rep who is sending the e-signature document to the client.
To have a PDF field automatically filled in with sales rep's information, simply click on the PDF field, select the type of information to populate in the field, and click Add:
After you finish mapping the fields, click Save in the top-right corner to save the mappings:
