How do we write "she will get it done" or "she will get it signed (by someone)"?

Do we necessarily use "futur proche" e.g. elle va le faire ? However "elle va le signer" is not the same meaning. "Elle le fera signer" - would this be correct?

This relates to:
Conjugate faire in Le Futur (future tense) -

Bonjour Maloy !

For constructions such as "to have/get *something* done [by someone else]", you will use "faire faire *quelque chose*" in French, as follows:
"Elle le fera signer. / Elle va le faire signer." (She'll get it signed.)

Here's a link to our related lesson:

I hope that's helpful !
À bientôt !
