Can I allow for a recipient to have an optional signer if that person can not sign?

@sarahdeware There is an Advanced Option on an envelope called “Recipients can change signing responsibility or assign a delegate” which can be enabled or disabled on an envelope. If the setting is enabled on the envelope then the Recipient could re-assign the envelope or provide a delegate to sign on there behalf. Is that what you were looking for?
