More Ways to Streamline Contracts with Docusign for Salesforce

By Andy Tzou 

You've already spent the time to make sure your Salesforce records have all of the information you need. So why should you need to re-enter that information before sending a document out for signature?   

One of the most helpful and powerful tools in the Docusign for Salesforce toolbox is merge fields. With a few simple configuration steps, you can connect Salesforce data fields to fields on your documents, allowing data to automatically appear-- without having to manually re-enter it.

Besides the obvious benefit of automatically populating data onto forms, implementing merge fields:

Saves time : Users no longer have to go through the painstaking task of manually entering information onto documents prior to sending

Reduces errors: Information is no longer manually entered, so what’s populated onto documents is exactly what exists in Salesforce.

Real-time updates: Merge fields can be configured with a simple checkbox to allow for data to flow both ways – meaning data can appear on documents automatically. When a recipient fills out form fields, that data is automatically pushed to the corresponding fields in Salesforce.
