Sign Reports Graphically


Click this video to see it in action!

To sign your report with your graphical signature:

  1. In a report in TOTAL, click the drop-down arrow beside the Sign button in the top toolbar.
  2. From the menu, choose Non-Securely with My Graphical Signature.

  3. Depending on whether you've set up your signature file before, one of two things will happen.

 


Signature History

Every time you sign a report, an event is recorded in the signature history, and all of the events in the signature history are automatically displayed in the Signature History pane on the left after signing the report.

When a report is signed Securely with eSign, two events are stored: the Signed event, and the Print event.  There are a couple of things you can do with these events:

  1. Double-click a Print event to view a PDF of the report as it was when it was signed.
  2. Double-click a Signed event with the magnifying glass next to it to view the salient data that was stored on our servers.  This will display the same page that any reader would see when validating the signature of the report.

Note that a Signed event with no magnifying glass indicates that this was a graphical signature only.  Double-clicking on these events does nothing.

 


Remove Your Graphical Signature

To remove your graphical signature from a signed report:

  1. In a report in TOTAL, click the drop-down arrow beside the Sign button in the top toolbar.
  2. From the menu, choose Remove Appraiser Signature, Remove Supervisor Signature, OR Remove Both Signatures to remove the respective signature(s) from your report and click Yes to confirm that you want to remove the signature(s).
