Quick Steps

  1. Click to open an email you've received in your inbox requesting that you e-sign a document.
  2. Then click the link Click here to review and sign [name of document].
  3. Take a little time to review the agreement and when ready to sign, click the yellow Start tab. This will take you to the first field that needs your attention.
  4. Click once in the box as instructed to sign the document.
  5. You have two options for signing the document: Either a font-based signature or a biometric (drawn with your mouse) signature.
  6. Either way, first type your name in the signature field. If you want to use the font-based signature, simply click Apply when finished typing your name.
  7. If you prefer to use a biometric signature, click Draw and use your mouse to draw your signature. If you make a mistake while drawing your signature, click Clear to clear your signature and try again. When you have a signature you're happy with, click Apply.
  8. The system will guide you through any additional fields you may need to complete. When all fields have been completed, a blue box will appear in the lower right hand corner of the document. Click Click to sign to complete the signing process.
  9. There are a number of ways you can view or retrieve a copy of the signed agreement. To download a copy immediately after signing, click Download a copy and save it to your computer for future reference. And since a copy of the agreement has been sent to all parties, you will receive a signed copy in your inbox.
