Have you received an email from firstname.lastname@example.org asking to sign a document?
Click on the link in the email to open the document. Please note: for security reasons, the link can only be used once. When the link has expired, you will be given the option to generate a new link.
You have several options:
- (Approve or) Sign: scroll through the document and follow the instructions.
- Reassign: if the sender of the document has allowed this, you will be able to reassign the document to another person, who will then sign in his or her own name. He/she will receive an automatically generated e-mail for this. When reassigning, you have the option to add a comment for the signer.
- Reject: in this case you can specify a reason for the refusal. The sender of the document will be notified.
Warning: To sign with an eID you will be asked to download and install a plug-in from the Chrome Web Store. To do this, follow the instructions that appear on your screen. More info (pdf)
After performing one of the above actions you can close your browser window.
After complete processing of the document, you will receive another email containing a link to download the fully signed document.
