Account Activation – Authorized Signer Job Aid



This Job Aid covers:


Customer Agreement – Authorized Signer

Collecting Information for the Customer

This Job Aid supports the Viasat Retail (Fulfillment and Dealer) Technician audiences.


This Job Aid provides the steps the Authorized Signer and the Technician to follow for the Online Customer Agreement process for new Viasat service. It is the Technician’s responsibility to help the Authorized Signer understand that:

  • They are signing on behalf of the Customer
  • The Authorized Signer must convey information to the Customer about how to complete the Account Setup.
    • All billing statements and Viasat contacts are directed to the Account’s Contact email
    • Access to Data Usage, BuyMore, and other benefits is only available to the customer if the Account is set up

Important! If the Customer is present, follow the procedure in the Viasat Service Account Activation – Customer Present – Job Aid.

This process begins in the Installation Portal (Provisioning system) after the Quality of Installation (QOI) process registers all green LED values. The browser refreshes to show the New Customer Account Setup page.

  4. The IR Agent emails a copy of the Authorized Signer’s Customer Agreement to that email address.
  5. Retrieve the PDF from the email address, and save it to the Customer’s desktop.
  • Open the PDF.

Note: The computer must have Adobe Acrobat Reader, or other PDF Reader installed.
