Constellation1 eSign features multiple advanced signature options. These include two-factor authentication, which you can set to use a predetermined PIN or text message code, with a paid option for knowledge-based authentication.

  1. Name your session and your transaction

Once you’ve configured your signing session, you can name it or add it to an existing session, then name the transaction. For example, your session might be Smith Purchase – 123 Main Street with different transactions for all the different documents that need to be signed. You can add as many transactions to each session as you need, keeping everything organized and in one place. You can also use this step to write a customized message to signers.
