If you have multiple related designations in one document you can group them together for easier processing. This eases the burden on the notary who no longer needs to place the designations during the transaction.

What are Grouped Designations?
Grouped Designations allow you to categorize designations so the signer can select one of many options.
As with individual designations, grouped designations can be assigned to a specific signer. If a designation is part of a group, it can only be assigned to a signer as a group. If you'd like to assign individual designations to different signers, apply them as separate designations.
You can also set a required minimum or a maximum number of selections in a group.
