October 2022 Product Updates and Enhancements – Secured Signing


Curious what product updates and enhancements we’re launching within Secured Signing this month? From user feedback to product development, testing to release, we strive to bring a seamless experience for our users, signers, witnesses, and viewers.

We pride ourselves in being a feature-rich platform, with an extensive list of features able to meet the requirements of small, medium, and large customers for users on any device which has us excited for our current release, and all future releases. Bringing simple, smart, secured digital signatures and remote online notarization to all.

Read on to see which new features and enhancements we have recently released.

New Feature – Needs to View 

“As a leading Digital Signature and Remote Online Notarization (RON) platform, we continue to release features and enhancements to our platform that will have a real impact on our user’s day-today operations, which is why we are excited to release “Needs to View,” a new process, which allows to invite a person to view the document, but not sign.”   

Gal Thompson, CEO at Secured Signing.

Needs to View is a new Invitee type that allows you to send a document to invitees who are required to view the document without needing to sign. Needs to View is available for WeSign, Notary RON sessions, Form Filler Templates and Video Signing.  

Security – Senders can assign Needs to View invitees with our existing authentication methods for document access. (I.e., Passcode, KBA, IDV, SMS)  

Flexibility – A mix of both Signer invitees and Needs to View invitees can be invited to a single or package document. In a package, an invitee can be a signer for one document and a Needs to view for another document (but cannot have both roles signer and viewer in the same document).   

How you can use it  

Needs to View is on by default – you can access the setting at My Account > My Settings 

For Enterprise users, the setting is located Accounts > My Account Settings
