Before you can begin your training sessions, you must complete the eSignature Checklist. This helps walk you through the necessary steps to get your portal up and running and ready for training.
The onboarding checklist must be completed by a Sertifi Super Admin role, since this is the only role with adequate permissions to add users and adjust general account settings.
You can complete the following checklist on this page, or download a copy of the checklist and other helpful quick reference guides:

To start your onboarding checklist, log into your Sertifi portal. Your portal URL should appear similar to the following: www.sertifi.com/NAMEOFCOMPANY. For example: www.sertifi.com/TheClosingGroup.
You can't log in to your portal by navigating to www.sertifi.com or by following links to www.sertifi.com/esign.
It's a best practice to bookmark the home page for your Sertifi portal for easy access.
