This document contains information on the platform release of Quill v2.1 (March 2023). Quill v2.1 is released on

What's new in this release?

Bulk signing using itsme® Sign

Sign a lot of different documents in bulk using itsme® Sign. You can add up to 70 documents to sign in one cycle. In
case you have selected more than 70 documents, the Quill platform will guide you through more than one bulk sign

Add your initials to one or more pages

We launch the possibility to add initials on a document that you sign. You can define your initials by uploading or in
Quill platform. When requested, you can add these initials on a specific position on a page or on all pages of a
document where no digital signature is already visualized .

Add more than one signature per signer on a document

From now on you can request a signer to put more than one signature on a document. In fact, the document will
only contain one electronical signature, but the visualization of the full signature (including the timestamp) will be
placed on multiple positions as configured by the document owner. You can define your visual signature by
uploading a picture or by drawing it in the Quill platform.

Restart approval/signing flow

After launching an approval/signing flow, you can “pause” the flow, implement some changes and restart or resume
the initial flow. For instance, you can change signing methods, add or remove users, ...without restarting the whole
signing flow.

Extended templating

Templates for approvals : Add specific approval flow in a template so you can reuse this approval flow easily.
Extended templating : More parameters from the signing flow can now be saved in a template and afterwards
applied to a new signing/approval flow, such as the email message, the value of the confidentiality flag and the post

Support for different Identity Providers (IDPs) to enable Single Sign On (SSO)

We can announce that Quill is now accessible by using your own preferred IDP and OpenID Connect. This release
enables a specific Quill login page for your company with your logo and your preferred OpenID Connect instances. It
is up to you which identity providers your users can use to log in. Since you can configure your own method of logging in,
there is also the need to define a company specific sub-domain.
Instead of directing to, you can direct your users to
On the generated login page you will find your configured color theme and company logo, next to the defined company
specific OpenID Connect instances.
It is important that you talk to us when you want to implement this OpenID Connect feature so that we can enable
this feature for your company!

Log in on the Quill platform using your eID card – updated (optional)

When you would like to login on the Quill platform using your eID card, you first need to link your Quill account to
your eID card based on the eID card number.
In case you already previously linked your account to your eID card, the link to your eID card number will be made
automatically the first time you login, provided this is within the next 6 months. If you login for the first time after 6
months from this release, you will need to manually link your eID card number to your Quill account.

Validation of signatures using API

By using this API you can verify the following:

  • Is there at least one signature on a (pdf) document?
  • Is the signature (or multiple signatures) valid?
  • Is - if there are more than one signature - the latest signature applicable on the entire document?

A new Quill manual

We have given the Quill manual a makeover, in the form of a brand new online landing page. This page is ordered by
different feature blocks, enriched with instruction-videos and a brief explanation which will provide you answers to
your Quill related questions.

    whom). In case there is a disapproval, the reason to disapprove is shown as well
  • Adding a personal API key : You can create your very own personal API key in your profile page. This API key
    can be used to integrate with other platforms like e.g., Power Automate.

What else will 2023 bring?

We plan to release a new Quill version by the end of spring. We’re looking forward to enrich our platform with :

    of Dioss Smart Solutions.
