The portal enables the electronic signing of documents, either for a single person or for multiple signatories.
If a document has been uploaded for you to sign, you will see the words Click to Sign or Secure Sign appear in the task column next to the document name.
When a document has been set-up up for Click to Sign, you will receive an email with a link to the document and a pin code. Clicking on the link in the email will take you to the portal to sign in and access the document.
Click to Sign enables you to click and accept the document without the need to enter signature images throughout the document. This method of signature is very secure and just requires you to confirm that you accept the entire document.
Select the document, click the Sign tab and enter the PIN code you received. Once you have read the document and are happy to sign, click on Confirm Signature and you will be presented with a box which is prefilled with your name and email. Click on Continue and you will be asked to confirm, select Yes. Once the document has been signed, your signature footprint details will be added to the document.
When a document has been set-up up for Secure Sign, you will receive an email with a link to the document and a pin code. Clicking on the link in the email will take you to the portal to sign in and access the document.
Once in the portal, select the document and select the Sign tab and enter the PIN code you received. In the document locate and click on the signature panels (this is done by selecting the Next Signature box on the top right of the document - there could be multiple places that your signature is required) and type in your name and click on the writing (or draw or upload an image of your signature). Once the signatures are all in place click, confirm signature (at the bottom of the document), ensure the prefilled details are correct and press Continue. Confirm your wish to sign, by clicking Yes. Once the document has been fully signed, your signature footprint details will be added to the document.
