Sharing a reusable document

August 16th, 2012

If you’ve mastered creating a reusable form, next step is sharing them.

Why share?

– If you have a company NDA, anyone at your company can access it.
– If you have a common company sales doc, you want to share it with your sales team.

1. Go to the Documents page and click Permissions

2. Check the people you’d like to share the reusable doc with.

3. You’re done! When your team member logs in next, he or she will be able to access the reusable doc.

Frequently sign the same document? Create a reusable form

August 14th, 2012

Do you have a form that you use frequently and want to send it out in a few clicks? Try reusable forms!

Create a reusable doc >

Here’s how it works:

1.) First, create your reusable form. Click on the Create a reusable doc tab on the left-hand side navigation and follow the steps

2.) To use your form, find your newly created form in the Documents tab


3.) Send it off for signature!

That’s it! A process that might take minutes, now takes seconds. If you send out the same NDA several times a day, that will save you a lot of time. Want to share the reusable from with your colleagues? Learn about sharing reusable forms.

Mentioned in Lifehacker!

July 10th, 2012

Check out Lifehacker’s most recent article, The Best Google Features You’re Probably Not Using. The good news is that we got included on that list! Here’s what they had to say:

“With HelloFax installed, every fax you send with the service is linked directly into Drive. Need to fax some forms? Send them from Drive. Waiting on a fax? HelloFax will stuff it right into your Drive folder so you can access it from anywhere. Most of us only need a fax machine on rare occasions and HelloFax is a handy alternative to a big clunky machine.”

Add Team Members for Free!

July 6th, 2012

Our goal is to become the way that companies everywhere sign documents. The problem with that if it costs money for each additional seat, there’s a disincentive to add each team member. So, we’re making it completely free to add up to 50 people on your team.

Ready? Start adding free team members now >

So, how do the new teams work?

1. You can create company documents and share them with your entire team. So, everyone has a access to the official company NDA. Read more about template sharing

2. You can route fax lines however you’d like. So, if you have 1 fax line and 20 team members, no worries! Read more about fax routing

3. If you have a paid plan and want to add another fax number, it’s just $4.99 / fax number / month. Each fax number just pulls on the fax pages of the master plan.

We have a lot more in store! So, if you have any feature requests, email us at support@hellofax.com.

Wish that your fax machine could deliver the fax that was intended for you? Hellofax’s fax routing feature allows you to assign any team members to any fax lines to receive incoming faxes that are sent to that line.

Mention in FastCompany

June 20th, 2012

We just got a great mention in Fast Company! They were hashing through all the cool things you can do with Google Drive – and we were the first tool they mentioned.

“Google Docs was turned into a general purpose cloud storage dropbox called Drive back in April. But in classic Google fashion, no one explained what you could do with your free 5GB of space besides upload and download files.

As it turns out, Drive is much more than just a different name for where you used to store documents and spreadsheets. For example, did you know you can fax people documents and PDFs from Drive?”

Yep! You can, with HelloFax! Good times.
