Prepare and send documents in Clio Grow

Once you have document templates uploaded into your Clio Grow account, you can prepare the document files and send them out to gather eSignatures. You can also continue to upload and share one-time PDFs rather than prepare document files from previously created document templates. Learn more about preparing and sending documents for signature here.

Tip: After all signers have signed the document, and if you have both Clio Grow and Clio Manage, you can export and convert the matter to Clio Manage and then view and manage the document directly in Clio Manage. Learn more about exporting matters here.

Note: A document signature link is valid for seven days. Once expired, your client can click the link in the document email to receive a new email with an active link.


Share documents in Clio Manage

In Clio Manage, you can create new documents from previously created document templates or upload completed document files and folders directly into Clio Manage. Once the documents are prepared, you can send them for electronic signatures or share them via secure link, Clio for Clients, or Clio for Co-Counsel.

  • Secure link: Documents sent via secure link are sent to your client's email address, where your client can then download the shared documents. Use this method if you do not want your clients to create login credentials to use Clio for Clients or if you want your clients to be able to access and download documents directly from Clio's secure server. Learn more about how to share documents via secure link in the instructions below.
  • Clio for Clients: Clio for Clients is a secure online portal for law firms and clients to communicate and share documents and other resources. You can use this portal to keep your clients up-to-date on their matters and view documents uploaded by your clients. Learn more about setting up the client portal here and more about sharing documents with clients here.
  • Clio Connect: Clio Connect is a secure online portal for law firms and external solicitors to communicate and share documents and other resources. You can use this portal to work on matters with solicitors who are not users on your firm account. Learn more about setting up the portal here and more about sharing documents with external solicitors here.
