Signable Audit Trail

An audit trail allows you to keep a step by step documented history and general ledger of business transactions. Traditionally this may be accounts payable, financial transactions and financial data kept on paper or electronically. When it comes to keeping track of your business’s electronic records and the internal controls and signing process connected to them you can see how an audit trail of events can be useful.

When using Signable electronic signatures your business will be able to keep a documented history of a transaction and of the status of any documents you send with our handy audit trail system.

Electronic Signature Audit Trail

Every action from the point of uploading a document is logged in a full audit trail that’s attached to the corresponding envelope in your account.

Once a document has been signed and submitted by your client, you will receive an email that includes the completed electronic document attached as a PDF and a certificate of signature.

The certificate of signature is an important document that includes important information including:

  • Who each signing party is
  • Dates, times, IP addresses and fingerprints
  • A full audit log or audit trail

With Signable, the audit trail provided gives you an action by action breakdown of the electronic signing progress of the document, allowing you to see the status of it and what has happened in the past to the source document.
