Contacts you invite to have ‘Edit’ access are able to upload documents and information to the sections and folders you choose of your Legado account. Contacts can have: Read-Only access, meaning they will only be able to view your folders Edit access, meaning they can view, create, upload or delete data in your folders. You can revoke and grant access to your Legado documents at any time by navigating to the Contacts section or by selecting individual folders. We have a comprehensive audit trail so you can see clearly the actions of any contacts (and yourself). This is in the “Recent Changes”” section. The audit trail (but not content) is also visible to Legado admin users to help debug any problems you have with finding information.”
Once an adviser has signed you up, you will receive an activation/invitation email from Legado. This email will contain a link which will bring you to the Legado website to finish the sign-up process. During the on-boarding process, you will be asked to designate the level of access you wish to grant to your the adviser and to enable two-factor authentication (Security section for more information). When completed, you will see your home dashboard. This gives you an overview of all your Sections. We recommend adding any documents or information that is immediately available to you. You can also ask your adviser to help you with the upload process, to help ensure you are ready for any life events. Once you have decided how you would like to upload your documents and information to the different parts of your Legado account, we suggest adding at least one other Contact. Your Legado account becomes even more valuable when your trusted advisers and loved ones have access to your important information.
