Step 3: Add a Text Field and when selecting the role, choose Me(while sending)

Step 4: Choose an appropriate name for your Merge Label, note that this place will be displayed with the value you set in the API request.

Assigning the value to the Merge Label

Step 1: Once you've set up the labels in your template you can map those labels to a value in the API request.

Step 2: You can assign value to this label in the API request on our Envelope API

The syntax for setting a value for a label looks like this.

merge_fields: [{
