Glossary

    A
  • See "eSignLive Application," which for brevity is often called simply "the Application."
  • Information stored in a signed document about the signatures that have been applied to it. Among other elements, this information includes the signer's name or organization, the signature's date and time, the digital certificate to be used for document validation, and the certificate chain to be used for certificate validation.
  • B
  • An eSignLive feature that enables users to create and distribute multiple transactions with minimum effort (by using a suitable template and a CVS file)
  • C
  • The Application User Experience (UX) for signers, senders, and administrators that became available in eSignLive 6.0. See also the "New User Experience (New UX)."
  • A field that, at the time of signing, is automatically populated with data that is specific to the signer
  • D
  • The initial interface that appears in the "New User Experience" after logging in
  • An eSignLive feature that enables users to delegate access to their transactions to one or more other users on their account. Specifically, delegates can sign documents on behalf of the delegator, and they can access the delegator's inbox, drafts, layouts, and templates.
  • An eSignLive feature that enables senders and integrators to control which recipients can view specific documents in a transaction during a Signing Ceremony
  • E
  • An eSignLive feature that permits the e-signing and notarization of the documents in a transaction
  • A companion server product that can create, control, and transfer ownership of the financial instruments called Transferable Records (e.g., e-Notes in a mortgage process)
  • An eSignLive module that enables authorized parties to find, review, and verify a stored e-signature process. It also provides a utility to securely export Electronic Evidence to a PDF file and/or a Web Archive HTML file.
  • Digital evidence related to an e-signature process, which eSignLive collects and securely stores within the process. This evidence has legal significance, and can be used in a court of law.
  • The name of the product documented on this website. It is software that provides a complete e-Signature Process Management platform for the Web, including preparing, distributing, reviewing, signing, and downloading documents.
  • The front end of eSignLive that was available only via a SaaS deployment before the release of eSignLive 6.0. Users, administrators, and integrators can interact with the Application using its GUI, its API, its SDKs, or its connectors.
  • A connector that enables eSignLive users to obtain securely signed Box documents
  • A connector that enables eSignLive users to obtain securely signed IBM Connections documents
  • A connector that enables eSignLive users to obtain securely signed Microsoft Dynamics CRM documents
  • A connector that enables eSignLive users to obtain securely signed Microsoft SharePoint documents
  • A connector that enables eSignLive users to obtain securely signed Salesforce documents
  • SDKs that enable users to run e-signature processes from mobile devices
  • A connector that enables documents to be printed directly into an e-signature process from any print-enabled Windows application (e.g., Word, Excel, Adobe Reader)
  • A module that sends event notifications to a person who is integrating eSignLive's User Interface into an iFrame. This is useful if the integrator wants to be notified when certain steps of the integration have been accomplished. After receiving such a notification, integrators can interrupt eSignLive’s normal activity to perform some asynchronous task (e.g., ask the user to confirm a request), and then notify eSignLive to resume its normal flow.
  • F
  • An eSignLive feature that enables the rapid distribution of transactions for signing
