E-signing in TeamEngine

A vital part for all boards is the signing of meeting minutes and other important papers. This can be done efficiently and securely in your TeamEngine portal. Avoid costly, risky and time-consuming processes through snail mail and give e-signing in your portal a try.

The first step to signing electronically in TeamEngine is uploading the paper as a PDF document. The e-signing function must be enabled in the document list in which you have uploaded and intend to sign the paper. You will find instructions on how to do this below.

Should a document require signing in a specific order this is easily done by firstly selecting all signers. When you are certain that you have selected everyone, deselect the “Send notification to signers when e-signing process has started”. Once you have saved and closed the Send link-option can be used to notify the signers in the order you prefer them to sign.

Important to keep in mind when e-signing in TeamEngine

  • Include all signers when initiating the process. You can neither add or remove people once the signing process has commenced.
  • The option of two step verification is available.
