What are Certificates of Record?

This is for users who are looking for a description of Certificates of Record.

A Certificate of Record is a feature of Sealed Documents. It displays metadata relevant to each Sealed Document along with an audit log of activity that occurred to that specific document.

dealcloser will append a Certificate of Record to Sealed Documents automatically. dealcloser only generates and attaches a Certificate of Record to a Sealed Document once all clients have signed the document. If an unsigned or partially signed Sealed Document is downloaded from dealcloser, it will not contain a Certificate of Record.
