Introducing DocuSign eSignature for Microsoft Teams

In today’s connected world the average business uses 175 various tools across their organizations. And, users can spend up to a whopping 32 days a year just switching between those apps - a huge hit to productivity, especially for common tasks like the routing of documents, forms and contracts for approval and signature.

In this age of “app overload” users want work to be simple and seamless so they can streamline processes and keep business moving forward. What would happen if the 115 million+ daily active users relying on Microsoft Teams to collaborate and stay productive could also keep their policies, contracts and other agreements moving by having the ability to sign them directly from within Teams? We no longer need to wonder. 

"As the need for agility and meeting customers where they do business is more important than ever, we are excited to partner with Microsoft to streamline business processes for our joint customers," said Jerome Levadoux, SVP of Sign at DocuSign. "Our new eSignature integration enables a seamless experience for the millions of people using Microsoft Teams to send and sign important documents, and keeps business moving forward."

“The DocuSign integration with Microsoft Teams provides customers with more ways to stay connected and collaborate virtually,” said Daniel Canning, director, Microsoft Teams Platform. “With DocuSign eSignature for Microsoft Teams, our customers get real-time notifications on contracts and forms right from where they are already collaborating, enabling them to boost productivity and accelerate the completion of agreements.”

Move faster 

Quickly send agreements like onboarding documents, sales contracts, and more for signature from within Teams. You will also get notifications when you need to sign or when someone completes an agreement, and reminder notifications are automatically sent to encourage others to sign and complete documents. And it works on virtually any device so you can move fast from wherever you are. 


Get more value 

With integrations across Microsoft 365 and Dynamics 365, DocuSign eSignature is everywhere you want it to be within the world of Microsoft applications. You can send agreements and approvals for eSigning directly from DocuSign for Dynamics 365. Or easily prepare and send documents for e-signature using Microsoft applications like Microsoft Word, Microsoft SharePoint or Microsoft Outlook. Or use the Power Automate integration so you can streamline processes between DocuSign and your Microsoft applications. Our new integration with Teams works seamlessly with these existing integrations to drive additional productivity.

Achieve peace of mind

DocuSign eSignature includes an electronic record that serves as an audit trail and proof of the transaction. It also helps you meet some of the most stringent security standards, and uses the strongest data encryption technologies available. 

This is just the beginning of what we have planned to deliver with Teams. Stay tuned as we will be rolling out additional innovations with Teams to continue to drive employee productivity and accelerate agreements. Later this year we will also be adding the DocuSign eSignature app to Microsoft Approvals – stay tuned for updates.
