During October’s “Ask the Expert” webinar in EMEA we demonstrated how to unlock the potential of your DocuSign account with expert tips from Robert Jackson, one of our New Client Consultants and myself.
There were a number of great questions asked from registrants prior to the webinar, and plenty from attendees that kept us busy! I have collated some of these questions below, and provided the relevant resources to help you to become an expert DocuSigner.
1) Can you get a document signed by signees that do not have an account?
Yes, a signer does not require a DocuSign account in order to sign a document. If you wish to ensure a signer DOES have a DocuSign account as an extra level of authentication – this is possible by either a free signer account OR using the manage signers function from the senders account. More information on this can be found here.
2) What authentication methods are there available?
There are several levels of signer authentication available from within the DocuSign console – more information on each can be found here.
3) Can you upload in any document format?
DocuSign converts documents to PDF file format, but you can upload documents in any of the following file formats:
  • Microsoft® Word® 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013
  • Microsoft Excel® 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013
  • Microsoft PowerPoint® 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013
  • Text files (.txt)
  • Rich Text Format (.rtf)
  • Image file formats (.png, .jpg, .gif and .tif)
  • Portable Document Format (.pdf) files
4) How do I share a template with a colleague?
Sharing Templates is a great DocuSign features, step-by-step help on how to do this can be found here.
5) Where is the best place for me to find a user guide and other useful information on DocuSign?
