Create a contract in Sympa HR

As a Sympa HR and Oneflow user, you can create Oneflow contracts and follow their status directly from Sympa HR. In this article, you will learn how to create in Sympa HR and how to delete them.
Anyone with the reporting candidate account can create contracts in Sympa HR.


Before creating a contract in Sympa HR, ensure you are signed in to your Sympa HR and Oneflow accounts with the same email

Check if the Contract option is available for the candidate


This article shows a sample of the Sympa HR user interface that might differ from yours due to your company setup preferences. Please contact the Sympa HR admin if you have trouble finding page groups and UI elements described further. 

To create a new contract in Sympa HR, ensure this option is available for the selected candidate. 

To check this:

  1. Log in to your Sympa HR account, go to the Personnel section and click the candidate name.

  2. On the candidate's page, hover over the page group with the link to contracts and click Contract.

If the Contract option is not available, please get in touch with your Sympa HR administrator to set it up for you.

Create a contract 

Once you've ensured that the contract Create feature is available for the selected candidate, you can create your first contract in Sympa HR. 

To create a contract:

  1. On the Contracts page, click Create new.

  2. In the New document pop-up window, Electronic document drop-down list, select one of the available templates and click Start Esigning. (Please see the Getting started with Sympa HR article for more details.)

    Make sure your Sympa HR template has the correct Oneflow workspace and template IDs mapped.
  3. The Employee and the Authorized signer's details will be populated automatically based on your Sympa HR configurations.
  4. However, you can update the Authorized signer details. Start typing a new signer name in the Authorized signer field and select one of the suggested variants.
    You can have multiple Authorized Signers for the contract. Please get in touch with your Sympa HR administrator to enable this feature.


    Please ensure that the authorized signer's email is the same as their Oneflow account email and have access to the Oneflow workspace and template ID specified inside the Sympa HR Template; otherwise, the contract creation will fail.

  5. In the next step, update the Subject and Document name fields of the electronic document. 

  6. You can also preview the contract in this step by clicking the corresponding button in this pop-up window. The contract preview will automatically open in a new tab of your browser. If you are satisfied with the contract, click  Send, and the contract will be sent to the candidate for further signing on Oneflow. 


This Document name will be reflected only in the Sympa HR contract table, whereas the name of this contract in Oneflow is set when you open it in the Oneflow app.

The candidate will receive an email invitation to open and sign the contract with the link to access the contract in Oneflow.

Check the contract status

In Sympa HR, a contract can have one of the following statuses:

  • Completedthe contract has been signed by all parties.

  • Deliveredthe contract has been delivered to the candidate.

  • Sentthe contract has been sent to the candidate for signing.

  • Declinedone of the parties marked the contract as declined.

  • Expired: the period within which the parties should have signed the contract has ended. 

You can always check your contract status. To view the contract status:

  1. On the candidate's page, hover over the relevant page group and click Contract (in this example, it's the Contracting page group).

Once both parties sign the contract, the system will change the contract status to Completed, and you will be able to access the signed contract in Sympa HR.

Delete a contract

If you want to delete your contract in the Sympa HR app, click the Actions menu item and Delete
