Why is there no document to sign when I login to eduSign, even though I got an email inviting me to sign a document?

When you are invited to sign documents in eduSign the document is linked using the email adress you are invited with and the email address the account you login to eduSign have registered to it. Sometimes an account have a different email address registered to it than what you might usually use when sending emails. You can check which mail value your account has registered if you login to SWAMID Release check. It is important that your mail value match the email used to invite you to sign a document with eduSign.
