DocuSign Overview

DocuSign is the industry leader for electronic signatures and workflow routed online forms.  At its heart, DocuSign is trying to replicate the experience of routing and signing paper documents.  This desire is expressed in the terminology used by the system (i.e. ‘envelope’) and the way the system functions.  If you keep this in mind, it will increase your understanding of this system.

ASU has configured an enterprise organization wrapped in our ASURITE single sign-on to be used by faculty and staff of the university.  Creating an account is simple and easy as outlined in the instructions below.  All faculty and staff can follow the steps and have a DocuSign account automatically provisioned with the ability to send envelopes through the system.  Please fill out the ServiceNow form to receive training to use and send templates, schedule a department on-boarding or to have a template turned into a Powerform.
