DocuSign Winter '14 Release
As part of the DocuSign Winter ’14 Release, we plan to deliver the following enhancements on December 6th. We are offering our customers this early look at some of our upcoming capabilities.
Expanded Digital Signature Support
DocuSign is expanding our support for digital signatures (a specific technology implementation of electronic signature for customers in certain industries and geographies) with the introduction of the DocuSign Express Digital Signature. This premium, fee-based add-on enables X.509 PKI standards-based digital signatures backed by DocuSign that make digital signatures easier, faster and more convenient to use. The DocuSign Express Digital Signature is entirely cloud-based, can be added by senders with a single click, and is automatically issued at the time of signing without additional steps for the signer.
Saved and Scheduled Custom Reports
In this release, we add more features to the Reports tab, including the ability to save, schedule, and customize reports. Users will be able to select which data to include, send reports via email, specify additional recipients, and set their preferred delivery schedule. Admins can report across the entire account, specific groups, or individuals.
Note: In the November Service Pack, released November 1, we added the ability to save reports with custom settings in "My Reports".
Signer Experience Enhancements
DocuSign will deepen accessibility support, enabling sight and hearing impaired signers to sign documents with our service in adherence with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 508 standards.
In this release you will also see minor enhancements to performance, quality and usability on PCs and mobile devices. Customizations and branding will not be impacted. All customers on the most recent signing experience will see these minor enhancements on the release date.
Customers who still remain on the previous signing experience (i.e. experience prior to the May 17th, 2013 release) will not see these minor enhancements until they move to the current signing experience.
Note: Customers can remain on the previous signing experience until February 1, 2014.
Minor Adjustment to Data Change Tools
We will make a minor change to the color of our Data Change Tools, which enable administrators to locate data that has been updated or modified in within envelope data fields.
Enhanced PDF Form Field Conversion
We will improve the way DocuSign converts form fields in PDF documents loaded into our service. For all current supported form fields, DocuSign documents will now inherit the exact form field properties, such as font style and size, value, read only and more.
REST API Performance Improvements
Underlying infrastructure enhancements will improve the security, performance and scalability of REST-based applications.
DocuSign Mobile Apps
Mobile Templates: Customers who already take advantage of DocuSign templates to reduce preparation time for commonly-used documents can now access templates from DocuSign Mobile Native Apps. Easily prepare and send documents for signature from your smartphone or tablet. In-person signing sessions are even more powerful - hosts can access templates to close business on the spot.
