Before you start
To edit a recipient, please ensure that you have the 'Can Edit Document' permission.
Use this endpoint to easily fix typos in a recipient's name or email, or to change any other recipient information in a sent document. Please note that changes made to a recipient within a document will also update their contact information. However, these changes will not update information about this recipient in other documents where they have already been added.
- You can edit a signer in the following document statuses: 'Draft' (
document.draft), 'Waiting Approval' (
document.waiting_approval), 'Approved' (
document.approved), 'Rejected' (
document.rejected), 'Sent' (
document.sent), and 'Viewed' (
document.viewed), but only until they have signed the document.
- You can edit a CC recipient in any document status except for the 'Expired' (
document.voided) and 'Declined' (
Updating a recipient's email after sending a document
Note: If you update a recipient's email address after sending a document, they will receive an instant notification at the new email address, allowing them access to the document. Access via the previous email will be revoked.
- You cannot change emails of PandaDoc users.
- You cannot use the email addresses of existing contacts. If you need to use an email from an existing contact, use the Change Signer endpoint to replace a signer with this contact.
