Starting this week, we’re offering an updated experience for DocuSign for Salesforce users! Thanks to customer feedback, we’ve made several enhancements to the UI – providing the same great features you love, but better. We’ve also improved the administration and installation experience for Salesforce admins, making it easier to manage accounts and get work done in fewer steps.
If you’re not familiar with the DocuSign for Salesforce app, learn more here. As one of the most-downloaded apps on the Salesforce App Exchange, DocuSign allows teams to close business faster and shorten sales cycles. For example, the Salesforce team leverages DocuSign to automate contract processes, closing 90% of contracts on the same day – and 71% within one hour!
Here’s the run down on the key updates to DocuSign for Salesforce.
UI Enhancements: Send Documents More Easily
Add New Recipients: When you send a document like a sales contract from a Salesforce opportunity, it’s now easier to add new recipients – without having to add them to Salesforce first. If a recipient isn’t in your Salesforce contacts, simply click Quick Add, then type in their name and email. (As always, you can also add recipients directly from your existing Salesforce contacts and leads. Not to mention, DocuSign can leverage data from Salesforce to automatically pull in recipients and populate the template itself.)
Edit Order of Recipients: Don’t want someone to see a contract until it’s been filled out by another party first? No problem. Once you’ve added all the recipients for the document, you can now change the order by editing the number next to each contact, or by dragging and dropping each contact.
Simplified Administration & Installation
Layouts Tab: In the DocuSign Admin console, the updated Layouts tab simplifies the way Admins can add or remove buttons in both Salesforce, Salesforce1, and add DocuSign status and recipient status to layouts.
Installation Process: The process for installing DocuSign for Salesforce has been streamlined as well. A new checkbox-driven process allows administrators to get DocuSign up and running with fewer clicks.
