Advice for Recipient Finalisation Emails
FAQ: Should you select “Email with Attachments” or “Email with Download Link” on the recipient finalisation email?
Email with download link means that once the bundle has been finalised the client will receive an email directing them download their documents by clicking a link. The client will then be taken to a webpage where they are able to download and save their documents. This method allows you to retain multi-factor authentication security to access the signed documents. This will likely be your preferer method if you are using the ‘SMS to View’ option as your recipient verification mode.

Email with attachments means that once the bundle has been finalised the client will receive an email with the signed documents included as attachments. This method means that multi-factor authentication security is NOT APPLIED to the access of the signed documents.
The SMS Notifications section allows you to enable SMS notifications on new bundles, and provides a preview of what these look like.
Disabled - SMS notifications will not be available to be applied to any bundle.
Enabled - SMS notifications are enabled and can be applied on a per bundle/recipient basis.
Enabled and Auto-apply - SMS notifications are enabled and will be included on all bundles and recipients automatically.
The Reminders section allows you to set your business preferences for when bundle reminders are sent to your bundle recipients.
This includes setting a default due date, automatically applying that due date, setting reminders, and overdue messages.
