Tip: Clio offers a virtual file drive called Clio Drive, where you can create, access, and edit document files and folders directly from your desktop and make it easier to collaborate across your firm. Learn more here.

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.
