Follow the DocuSign Fall ‘18 Release

We unveiled DocuSign’s expanded vision at our annual customer conference, Momentum, earlier this year. That vision is to modernize the world’s Systems of Agreement. What is a System of Agreement you ask? Well, every organization has a System of Agreement - it’s how written agreements get prepared, signed, enacted and managed. DocuSign modernized e-signatures, and now we’re broadening the DocuSign platform to automate and connect what happens before, during and after an e-signature is completed, thus modernizing your System of Agreement. Let’s dive into our latest product innovations and see how we’re delivering on that vision with the DocuSign Fall ‘18 Release.


If you want to magically transform 8.5 x 11 pieces of paper into digital agreements, Mobile Document Scanning is for you. Since launching Mobile Document Scanning for iOS devices last quarter, it has already become the second most popular document import method. That’s why we’re so excited to bring this capability to Android devices this quarter. Now anyone with an iOS or Android device can easily scan then edit, crop, resize and add multiple pages before importing documents into DocuSign. This isn’t just useful inside your business for things like construction plans, disclosure packets, and invoice approvals, but this is also useful in your personal life, with signing event waivers, permission slips or repair quotes.

A PDF document on a phone can be a bad experience - it can require pinching, zooming, and scrolling. With Responsive Signing, we take that static PDF and automatically create a parallel document in to responsive HTML, meaning it is optimized for enhanced readability on any screen size and orientation. Whatever device it’s viewed on, we have you covered. (Available in October)

Smart Sections takes Responsive Signing even further by allowing you to have more control over the mobile experience, like collapsible sections, page breaks, custom formatting options and more. Think of the possibilities, financing agreements, account openings, sales contracts, or really any complex or long contracts - this can greatly enhance your customers’ experiences during your agreement process and improve your completion rates.

Have you ever felt the pain of poring over your agreements, trying to understand what’s exactly in all of them? What if you could apply artificial intelligence and machine learning to automatically search and analyze across all your agreements? With Intelligent Insights powered by Seal, this powerful capability goes beyond keywords to “understand” concepts in agreement clauses, much as a human analyst would. This technology automatically classifies and compares how different agreements handle topics, enabling you to quickly spot anomalies, risks, and opportunities. Also available is the GDPR Compliance Pack powered by Seal, where you can use validated GDPR algorithms to quickly surface areas of exposure across 35 major categories. As GDPR regulations change, the GDPR algorithms update too, helping you to mitigate compliance risk and reputational harm.

Also in “Manage,” for customers who want a blockchain as part of their System of Agreement, we have a pre-built integration with the Ethereum blockchain, the most popular blockchain for smart contracts. Although DocuSign can natively verify the integrity of any DocuSigned document, this integration provides an additional option for verifying document evidence via blockchain technology.

And finally, we’re proud to launch our new Trust Center. Our expanded Trust Center underscores our top priority: the privacy and security of your information, documents, and data. Check out the refreshed and updated page here to follow our latest legal, privacy, compliance, security, and system performance information.
