Frequently Asked Questions
DocQ looks great – How do I get started?Signing up is easy. Select the plan that best meets your needs whether Free, Personal, or Business. Free accounts need only register with an email address.
What can I do on DocQ?The first release of DocQ allows users to upload PDF documents from the PC or Web, organize them, edit them, share, and host them in a secure business-friendly environment. DocQ is an online business center giving PDF users an easy to use system to back up documents, share them, as well as modify and change the PDF. Use DocQ instead of the fax machine or overnight shipping when needing to fill and send PDF forms. If a signature is required, be sure to sign with a DocQ Verified Digital Signature.
Does my document have to be in the PDF format?No. While we think the PDF format is the best format to send and share documents, you do not have to upload it as a PDF. If you have a document in any of the office formats (as well as many others) you can upload it and we will convert it to a PDF for you automatically. If you want to create PDF's first and apply additional settings we recommend our PDF creator.
