Release 20220530

Planned production date: 30.05.2022 at 16.30-16.45

Content of this release:

  • Change email address in sent out order
  • Improvement in Signed order list

Change email address in sent out order

We have released a feature that enables you to change one or more email addresses in an already sent out order. This means that if you have typed wrong email address, or  you want to send to another person, this is now easy to do without creating the order all over again.
At the Order list page, choose "Sent out", and then click on view icon for the specific order you want to edit. At the signatories table showing each signer, an edit icon is shown and when you click on it, a pop-up will open with only the editable email field and a button for save Yes/No will be provided. When you click "Yes"  the order will be sent to the updated email address.
Note:
  • Type of EID and Signer ID cannot be changed (still it can be changed if none of the signers have signed). 
  • The first signer (before editing email address) can still sign the order.

Improvement in Signed order list

When a user e.g. leaves the company and is deleted from relevant groups, now the other members of the same group are still able to see the orders created by the deleted user. This is carried out for orders in all statuses. Members of other groups are not able to see the orders created by the deleted user.


Release 20220512

Planned production date: 12.05.2022 at 16.30-16.45

Content of this release:

  • Change Order name setting in create new order

Change Order name setting

In today conditions it is the first uploaded document's file name that automatic populate in the field Order name in Create order page. This is now changed to be customized. The Administrator at your company can configure if this should be the condition, or that the Order name field should not be populated when uploading a document. When this is chosen, the caseworker must enter the Order name.

Bug fixes

When the order is signed correctly but the PDF contains attributes that of some reason leads to generating of PAdES (the signed PDF) is failing, then the Order status has been locked in wrong status Sent out instead of the correct status Signed. We have  fixed this and updated the system so orders affected of this, will now get the correct status.

Authentication-based signing
Nets E-Signing Portal (through E-Signing service) utilizes the different eID authentication services for issuing a short-term signing certificate. The short-term certificate is used to create a strong PKI-based signature attached to the document. The certificate is issued by a Nets CA. It is valid for 15 minutes and it is only used for this particular purpose. The certificate and a certificate validation (OCSP) are added to the SDO (signed document object).

Serial Signing by using steps

In today’s E-Signing Portal when there are multiple signers; we only support parallel signing.  In this release we introduce use of "steps" in the signing order. This means that the signer(s) at previous step has to sign before signer(s) at next step can sign the order. When you create an order with multiple signers, you can choose between add a signer at the same step (parallel signing) or add a signer at next step (serial signing).  The design at "Create new order" page is changed aligned to this. Maximum numbers of steps to be added, is 10. Notify that when "PDF with form fields" is chosen, it will always be the  signer at step 1 that finalize the form, and it is not possible to add more signers at the first step. ​
