E-sign documents on Agilewords with DocuSign

We have (more) exciting news!

We just completed our DocuSign integration. It means that you can ask collaborators to e-sign documents they review on Agilewords.

This integration was a no brainer for us. E-signature is a natural extension to our review workflow and benefits users who collaborate on legal documents with partners or lawyers.

Why DocuSign? First, they’re at the forefront of cloud-based document signature and a leader in that space. Like us, they have an app on Box.net (you know, that great cloud collaboration platform). So the DocuSign integration helps us keep things simple for Box.net users who already use both services.


How does the DocuSign integration works?

We integrated DocuSign e-signature as a natural extension to our review workflow. After completing a document review on Agilewords, you can request the collaborators e-sign the document.

To do so, follow these steps.

  • Go to the document folder (or open the document).
  • Open the file menu and click “Sign with DocuSign”.
  • A setup page appears.
  • Login to your DocuSign account.
  • Select reviewers who need to sign the document or type the email of other people who need to sign the document.
  • Click Sign with DocusSign.
  • A PDF version of the document is sent to DocuSign who notifies all signees.

We introduced two new document icons to show to the owner of the document the e-signature status:

  • for e-signature in progress
  • for documents e-signed by all parties


The document owner can track the signature progress at anytime by clicking ‘Sign with DocuSign’ from the document drop-down menu (see screenshot above).

The page shows the DocuSign status for each signer. You need to login to your DocuSign account to retrieve the signees latest status.


Summary

With DocuSign integration, you can now review, edit, collaborate, and e-sign documents in the cloud. E-signature is legally binding so it’s a great way to quickly seal deals or agreements once you passed the review stage.

As usual, we invite you to send us feedback and share ideas you may have to improve this integration.
