DocuSign Signing

Signing a DocuSign Document is quick and easy.  If your signature or initials are needed on a DocuSign document, you will receive an email with a link to the document.  Depending on the way the form is setup, you will either be taken directly to the form or you will be redirected to a page asking you to enter a code that would be provided in the email. 

Once taken to the document, you will be able to enter any requested information and provide your signature with a simple click of the button. 

The following information should help an individual through the signing experience.

DocuSign Notification Email

The subject and body of the email can be configured inside DocuSign before an envelope is sent.  The body can be different for each member in the workflow but the basic framework of the email will remain the same.

The first step to reviewing and signing a DocuSign document is to agree to using DocuSign’s electronic records and signatures.  More information regarding this can be found at DocuSign’s site, linked to below.

Creating a Signature

The first time you use DocuSign to electronically sign a document, you will be asked to create a signature.  There are three options to create your DocuSign signature:

  • Select a premade style provided by DocuSign
  • Use your mouse to create a signature
  • Download the mobile application and draw your signature with your finger or stylus

Completing the Signing Process

Once you have entered all the necessary information and electronically signed the document you will need to click the 'Finish' button in the lower right corner of the screen. At this time, it will be routed to the next individual in the workflow. If it is the final step, all members of the workflow will receive an email to view the completed document to review, print or save.
