For complex forms, guide your signers to success

DocuSign Guided Forms provides a step-by-step, mobile-ready experience to help your signers easily complete long or complex forms. Signers are given questions that automatically adapt based on previous answers. When the questions are done, the system can use the answers to automatically generate the signer’s signature-ready agreement in DocuSign eSignature (sold separately). The result is a faster, friendlier experience for your signers, with fewer errors and less friction.

When would I use DocuSign Guided Forms versus DocuSign CLM?

Guided Forms helps large organizations simplify a signer’s experience in providing information that will appear in an agreement. The most common use case is Business-to-Consumer self-service scenarios (e.g., applications and onboarding).

DocuSign CLM helps the sender (e.g., a sales rep) create an agreement, automatically populate it with information from other systems, collaborate/negotiate with other parties, and retain and search the completed agreement in a central repository. The most common use case is Business-to-Business sales scenarios. DocuSign CLM is also often used in Legal, Procurement, and HR.
