Welcome to the

DocuSign Blog

Quick Tip Tuesday: I’ve signed my first document, now what? Creating a DocuSign account.

If you’ve never created a DocuSign account, but you’ve signed documents, DocuSign has automatically created a free recipient account for you.

Recipient accounts are created for signers or ‘recipients’ as a free placeholder for the documents they have signed. To access your account, there are two options.

Create a password for the account after signing

After you’ve signed a document sent to your email address, you should be presented with the option to create an account.

Enter the password you’d like and click SIGN UP.

With your new free account, you are able to send up to 3 documents for signature, sign unlimited documents, and store unlimited documents indefinitely.

Reset the password from www.docusign.net

If you missed the prompt to create your account, you can easily activate it and log in by resetting your password. In this case, you’re not actually ‘resetting’ your password, but creating a password, but the end result is access to your free recipient account.

  1. Go to www.docusign.net and click Forgot your password?
    3
  2. Enter the email address you’ve received and signed documents with, then click SEND.

  3. Log in to the email address and open the Reset Password Request email from DocuSign. Click Reset Password.
    5
  4. Enter and confirm the new password, then click DONE.
    6

You are now free to log in to DocuSign using the new password at www.docusign.net.

With your new free account, you are able to send up to 3 documents for signature, sign unlimited documents, and store unlimited documents indefinitely.

  1. But I’m not receiving any email to reset password. What is the reason? I’m using developer sandbox account.
