Version 1.0.1024 (May 2024)

  • An issue was discovered wherein admins could not log in to their portals if their computer's clock was more than 5 minutes off from the actual time. To mitigate this, admins are now greeted with a warning page if they attempt to access their portal while their device's time settings are too far off from the actual current time. The admin is instructed to contact their IT team in order to resolve the issue. (AUTH-1719)

  • SSO users would sometimes be directed to a login page that did not allow for SSO login. This has been fixed and no longer occurs. (AUTH-1741)

  • A bug would sometimes cause the Add Actions button to disappear from the Folder Maintenance page. This has been fixed. (AUTH-1756)

Version 1.0.0924 (May 2024)

  • The score results for 3DS and Advanced Fraud Tools are now displayed on the Folder Maintenance page. (AUTH-1590)

  • A bug was sometimes blocking access to folders if a user had a whitespace in the beginning or end of their password. This has been fixed. (ESIG-2752)

  • The Document Database Report has been updated to accurately mask or unmask sensitive data depending on the security permissions of the Admin viewing the report. This update applies to both Sertifi Classic and Next-Gen. (ESIG-2734)

  • In Sertifi Classic and Next-Gen, the ACH payment option would sometimes appear even if it wasn’t available due to an existing payment rule. This has been fixed and no longer occurs. (PAY-3743)

Version 1.0.0824 (April 2024)

  • When creating a new folder, the Event Date field is now named the Arrival/Event Date field. (ESIG-2715)

  • Users attempting to access an expired e-Form are now greeted with a message informing them of the form’s expiration. (AUTH-1614)

  • The Folder Maintenance page can now handle longer names for folder actions, such as the name for a signature document or payment request. (ESIG-2540)

  • Previously, users would encounter an error if attempting to create an admin in a new portal that wasn’t yet configured to use any of the available Sertifi workflows, such as e-Signatures or Payments. This has been fixed; users can now create admins even if a portal doesn’t have a workflow enabled. (ESIG-2693)

  • Previously, if a user was entering text in the search bar and briefly paused, the search results would load and the browser’s focus would shift out of the search box, requiring the user to click back into the search box in order to resume typing a search query. This no longer occurs. (ESIG-2667)

  • A bug fix was applied that enables admins to view payment receipts via the Participant View button, even if they’re not a participant in the folder. (ESIG-2535)

Version 1.0.0724 (April 2024)

  • Previously, a user attempting to update an email address in their Address Book would see the update fail. This has been fixed. (ESIG-1830)

  • The Sign tab now properly disappears after the user has signed the documents. (ESIG-2598)

  • Previously, available payment methods were not being displayed if the portal didn't have any payment rules configured. This has been fixed; all available payment methods are shown unless otherwise disabled by a portal's admin. (ESIG-2688)

  • Admins can now make Event Dates a required field for the folder creation process, making it so that folders must have an Event Date entered before they can be sent for signature. (ESIG-2697)

  • A bug was causing email previews to behave in unexpected ways. This has been fixed. (ESIG-2706)

  • Error messages would sometimes appear when navigating between different folder workflow sections while a payment was processing. This has been fixed. (ESIG-2710)

  • Previously, an existing participant’s assigned participant level would change when a new participant was added to the folder, and subsequently cause errors that would block the completion of the workflow. This has been fixed and no longer occurs. (ESIG-2387)

Version 1.0.0324 (February 2024)

  • UI updates have been applied to explain why an admin can't see a payment in a folder if the payment hasn't yet been submitted. (ESIG-2537)

  • Adjustments were applied for better consistency between the signature spaces for drawing and typing a signature on a mobile device. (ESIG-2490)

  • In View Authorizations, the 3DS status would sometimes not appear if the authentication attempt had failed. This no longer occurs. (ESIG-2502)

Version 1.0.2523 (December 2023)

  • The status of a 3DS authentication attempt is now displayed in relevant portal pages, such as Folder Maintenance pages. Admins can immediately see if a payment request was successfully authenticated by 3DS. In some portals, this status will be displayed in place of where a fraud score might have been seen earlier. (ESIG-2391)

  • Previously, if an admin accessed a folder via a secure link and removed a user or added a new file, these actions would be attributed to a user other than the admin in the Folder Activity log. This no longer occurs. (ESIG-2421)

  • A bug caused irregular borders to appear in the drawing field when a user was drawing their signature. This has been fixed. (ESIG-2427)

Version 1.0.2423 (December 2023)

  • Previously, read receipt emails were being sent to folder owners each time they viewed signed documents in their portal. This has been fixed and no longer occurs. (ESIG-2044)

  • If an Additional Input Field was enabled, but left blank, in Default Sending Options, a user would receive multiple error messages. This has been fixed. (ESIG-2376)

  • An authorization request record would remain in the Pending status even if the authorization was removed after all participants had completed their tasks. This has been fixed; authorization records now display the proper status in this situation. (AUTH-1199)

  • If one participant had completed their requested actions, and a different participant hadn't completed their actions but was subsequently removed from the folder, the authorization request record would nevertheless remain in the Pending status. This has been fixed; the authorization record now defaults to the Needs Attention status in this situation. (AUTH-1339)

  • Available folder actions were sometimes incorrect, depending on if the folder contain a payment, an authorization request, or both. This has been fixed. (AUTH-1391)

  • A bug would cause the Link To dropdown to be available in situations where it should be disabled. This has been fixed. (AUTH-1461)

  • The Folder Activity window has been updated to make a record for when admins unmask credit card details from an eForm in the expanded View Authorizations window. (AUTH-1494)

  • January 2024 was previously not appearing in the portal's calendar window. This has been fixed. (AUTH-1519)

Version 1.0.2323 (November 2023)

  • In the View Folders page, some folders were being marked as Partially Signed even if their signature documents had been fully signed. This has been fixed. (ESIG-2377)

  • Previously, a bug would sometimes result in a participant upload request being required, even if it was left as optional by the folder owner. This would subsequently prevent participants from completing a signing workflow without uploading something to the folder, which could cause confusion or frustration. This has been fixed and no longer occurs; a participant upload will only be required if explicitly marked as such. (ESIG-2345)

  • If an error occurred when accessing a payment, sometimes a user would be stuck on a blank window with no indication on how to proceed. This has been fixed; an error message now appears if one occurs when accessing a payment. (ESIG-2335)

  • UI updates have been applied so that text in text fields is easier to read on mobile devices. However, some users have also reported this issue being resolved by updating their devices to the latest version of their mobile device's operating system. (ESIG-2171)

Version 1.0.2223 (November 2023)

  • Wording updates were applied to the welcome message modal for eAuthorizations (AUTH-1458)

  • Previously, deleting a guest while signing an eForm would result in a 400 error. This no longer occurs. (AUTH-1312)

  • The Resend Invitations button would sometimes be disabled if the first participant had signed the folder's eForm. This has been fixed and no longer occurs. (AUTH-1218)

  • If an admin added a new first level participant to a folder, the new participant would sometimes be displayed with a time and date in the Last Invited field, even if they hadn't been sent an invitation to complete a task. This has been fixed. (ESIG-2075)

  • When opening the Tasks page from the dashboard, some users reported receiving a 500 error. This was caused by a server error that has since been fixed. (ESIG-2139)

  • For usability purposes, some icons were removed from the View Document page when viewing reference documents. (ESIG-2357)

Version 1.0.2123 (October 2023)

  • Previously, the Payments Received column in View Folders would not always display an accurate count of payments received. This has been fixed. (ESIG-1928)

  • Admins can now enable a checkbox for acknowledgment on participant uploads. This lets admins require their users to confirm that they are uploading documents to the folder, and that they understand uploads are permanent and irrevocable. (ESIG-2234)

  • Folders can no longer be deleted if they contain a payment in the Processing status. (ESIG-2263)

  • A user would sometimes access a folder containing an expired signature document with a linked payment; as the document was expired, they would be directed to the payment request with no instructions on how to proceed. This no longer occurs; if a user accesses a folder with an expired document, they are immediately directed to the document so they can see it is expired and unable to be signed. (ESIG-2298)

  • Previously, clicking Resend Receipt in a folder with a payment in the Error status would trigger an email to folder owner saying that a payment had been authorized. This has been fixed and no longer occurs. (ESIG-2301)

  • Sertifi Pay users can now directly enter their bank account information for ACH payments without having to authenticate the account on their bank website. (PAY-2744)

    To access this feature, click Bank Account on when entering payment information on the Sertifi Next Gen payment form. You'll then be able to directly enter your bank account information into the form.

    Note

    When paying with a business account, ensure the Business radio button is checked before submitting the payment form.

    If desired, users will still be able to validate their payment information by directly logging into their online bank account.

  • A bug was making it difficult to exit the Send a Message dialog when accessed via mobile devices. This has been fixed. (ESIG-2170)

  • Previously, using the browser's Back button when creating a new agreement workflow would sometimes result in documents being unsignable after being sent to participants. This no longer occurs. (ESIG-2152)

Version 1.0.1723 (September 2023)

  • If a document containing an embedded signer tag is uploaded, then an accompanying participant upload task will be automatically created for the document. (ESIG-2122)

  • Admins can now assign participants to a particular document, or multiple documents, from the Folder Maintenance window.

(ESIG-1838).

    To access this feature, click the ellipsis icon under More Actions to the right of the document name, and then click Assign Participants.

  • If a folder was created and only contained a participant upload (e.g. and didn't contain signature documents, payments, etc.), admins would not be able to resend invitations or access the More Options dropdown. This has been fixed; folders now function normally, even if they only contain a participant upload. (ESIG-1256)

This has been fixed. (ESIG-1785)

Version 00.04.06 (April 2023)

  • Previously, a user would sometimes not be redirected to the folder page after a payment was completed. This has been fixed. (ESIG-1725)

  • If a participant signed a document but closed the browser window before seeing the message indicating a successful signature, the next participant would not be notified that it was their turn to sign.

  • Previously, an error would result if a participant attempted to view files that were uploaded by other participants, even if they had the requisite permissions to do so. This has been fixed. (ESIG-1815)

(AUTH-1010)

  • In the Next Gen API, a request for updating Recent Conversations would occasionally pull down incorrect or irrelevant folders. This has been fixed and no longer occurs. (AUTH-1058)

  • New: payments can now be left open and unassigned, so that any participant in the folder can fulfill the payment.

This has been updated; now, if a payment is not assigned to any participant, then anyone in the folder can fulfill the payment request. (ESIG-1627)

  • Users can now duplicate files. (ESIG-1667)

  • Previously, a participant added during folder setup would receive invitation and reminder emails, even if they were deleted before the folder was sent for signature. This also occurred if a participant was added and later replaced before the folder was sent. In all cases, this has been fixed; a folder and signature documents will only be sent to the participants who are intended to receive it. (ESIG-1668)

  • Timestamps in the Folder Maintenance are now synced with the portal's configured time zone. (ESIG-1670, ESIG--1682, ESIG-1719)

This has been fixed; if a new task is added to a folder, owners can now send new invitation emails to their participants. (ESIG-1678)

  • If a document's name exceeds the allowed character length, users are now notified via an error message. (ESIG-1565)

  • When writing comments in folders, users can now read what they've written after writing it as the text is being posted to the comment section. Previously, written text would disappear while it was being posted to the folder comment section. (ESIG-1640)

  • Users would sometimes be unable to submit documents after using pre-filled signature fields; this has been fixed. (ESIG-1660)

  • The Add Payment button was reported as unresponsive; this has been fixed. (ESIG-1696)

For example, a 2nd-level signer would sometimes receive a reminder email before even the 1st-level signers had completed their signatures. This has been fixed; 2nd-level participants can only receive reminder emails after a certain amount of time has passed. (ESIG-801)

Version 0.03.24 (December 2022)

  • Admins can now view folders from the perspective of participants by accessing the Participant View function from the Folder Maintenance page. (EISG-535)

  • Previously, some timestamps weren’t updating if the portal’s time zone setting was changed. This has been fixed. (ESIG-1250)
