DocuSign is an easy-to-use digital transaction platform, which allows users to send, sign, and manage legally binding documents securely in the cloud.  All faculty and staff will be able to use DocuSign for university business.  Students will not be allowed to have a DocuSign account.


DocuSign Access

Colleges and Departments will be given a DocuSign sub-account within the ISU Organization Account. To understand, think of the ISU Organization Account as a filing cabinet.  Your College or Department will be given an account or a drawer to the filing cabinet.  Each account must have an administrator from that area who will take the training, set up the account, assign users, roles, and groups, and provide training to their areas. Only those people who are assigned to a specific account (drawer) will be able to manage the documents in that account. Those outside the drawer will be able to fill out and sign documents shared with them by a college or department.  


Roles in DocuSign:

Each role requires different access to DocuSign.  Once your administrator has been assigned to your account, they will create and assign roles to individuals.

  • Signers can sign documents, create and save signatures, and track the routing status or workflow in which they are identified as recipients.
  • Senders can send envelopes to others and have the ability to change routing for subsequent recipients for a given envelope. 
  • Admins can create forms and also have the same access as senders and signers.
