You can select groups of people based on the stakeholder group they belong to or, search for specific people by typing their names in the search field.
Only people, not legal entities, can be invited to sign a document. You can add a contact person of a legal entity in the stakeholders list to invite them to sign on behalf of the legal entity.

This will save the selected settings for the signing of the document.
