- After ordering documents and adding to the eFolder, open the Notarize eClosing form and select Hybrid with eNote Closing. If you miss any of the field values above, you will see a red error message listing which fields are missing. Fill in the required fields and select Update Order on the Notarize eClosing form to create the eNote on the draft transaction created from the original 'Place Order' call.
After selecting Place Order, the closer will receive an email notifying him that documents are ready to send once they finish processing on the Notarize platform. When done processing, the transaction status on the Notarize eClosing form in Encompass will display a green ‘ready_to_send’ status (refresh the form to see this).
Note: If you have Auto-Send enabled on your account, the transaction will automatically send to the signer(s), and you will not receive an email (unless the documents need attention before sending to the signer due to a processing or tagging failure). You will not need to complete steps 5-7 below.
- Login to Notarize to view the transaction. The closer on the file will have access to change any information on the transaction and switch the toggles for e-sign vs. wet-sign documents. You can open documents to check signature placements as well. Please submit any errors/feedback regarding your documents to your Onboarding team for them to fix. Notice that the paper note you ordered in Encompass will be suppressed from the transaction if an eNote is present.
The eNote will be created in eOriginal and generated on the transaction in Notarize. The eNote seed file will be labeled [LOAN NUMBER]_eNote.xml. It will also be labeled this way in eOriginal. Social Security numbers will automatically be applied to signers.
The eNote seed file will be created in eOriginal and automatically generated in the documents list and labeled as [Loan_Number]_eNote.xml on the transaction in Notarize. Signer designations will also automatically be applied.
- If all details on the transaction and documents look correct in Notarize, click ‘Send to Signer’. The transaction will then be sent to the signer(s). Signers will have to pass KBA (knowledge-based authentication) to sign the transaction due to the eNote. See The Hybrid with eNote Signer Experience.
- After signing is complete, the e-signed documents will be pushed back to Encompass based on your Integration Settings in Notarize. See Document Pushback Options for more information.
For Title Agents
- See Title Wet-Sign Upload for Hybrid Transactions if you would like to give Title agents the ability to upload a merged file of the completed wet-sign documents and automatically push it to Encompass. Please let your Notarize Solutions Engineer know if you would like this enabled on your Lender account.
