Admin will have improved navigation to help you better navigate through the admin experience. The new navigation also better supports various screen sizes and form factors.
Connected Apps will be renamed to Document Sources and moved under Sending Settings to better define and categorize the purpose of these settings.
This change will also be made in My Preferences in the New DocuSign Experience.
This feature is now live for all customers in Demo and is scheduled for Production starting in mid-October.
In an effort to improve the security of unauthenticated access to envelopes, this change expires links to envelopes after five clicks or 48 hours from the time they are sent. This only applies to unauthenticated envelopes, this does not apply to envelopes with an access code or other authentication methods such as SSO.
Initially, this will not be enabled for all accounts but will be rolled out to accounts over the coming weeks.
Here are some details:
If users are required to authenticate with both an access code and SMS or phone, the new link only requires the access code to authenticate (it does not require SMS or phone authentication)
After a link has expired, the user can request a new link that will be sent to their email account
Users can now leverage DocuSign comments prior to sending an envelope and while correcting an envelope. After creating an envelope and going to the add fields page, users can click the Add Comment icon at the top of the page to apply a comment to the document. When correcting an envelope, users can now see existing comments and add their own. This feature will be made available to customers starting in mid-January and will be available to all customers by late February.
Users will now be prompted to finish the signing session on PowerForms through a dialog box if they close the tab or window before they finish signing.
We have added an extra field to the radio button group API to store specifically tooltip content in the add fields page instead of using existing data labels, which is duplicate information.
We will add hidden text on this page that announces "Press Ctrl+Alt+S to view keyboard shortcuts." when the page loads, or an extra link after the Skip to Main Content link that says "Keyboard Shortcuts". It's important that users who navigate with the keyboard know that they can use this option before they get trapped on the page.
For improved accessibility, all the pages now have more descriptive titles.
Manage and Templates now follow the folder that is being seen
Prepare and Add fields pages also describe whether an envelope or template is being created
Document Details has the title of the envelope
A critical bug in Preview caused us to roll back that functionality in Demo earlier in December. Preview will likely be reactivated in Demo in January, and we'll restart production rollout with the February release.
Senders can now create checkbox groups with validation rules for signers. Rules include the ability to select the exact number, at least, at most, or a range of checkboxes that must be selected. The feature will be enabled starting mid-January for select customers. It will be enabled for other customers on a rolling basis.
Contact your account representative to have this feature enabled for your account.
The Stamp wrapper text has been changed to "DocuSigned by:" for non-Japanese (eHanko) stamps. Before this change, the wrapper text was "DS" for all stamps. Japanese stamps continue to use the "DS" wrapper text. All other stamps now use the "DocuSigned by:" wrapper text.
Starting January 2019, Print Driver v2 will no longer function. Customers are encouraged to upgrade to Print Driver v3.x. The latest version (v3.2.1 uploaded October 10, 2018) of Print Driver is now available from the DocuSign support download site.
We now show the Continue button to Editors (MAR-27661).
Now, the complete list of templates available to users loads as they scroll through the list (MAR-28384).
We will be adding a Tooltip to the Radio Buttons in the add fields page that can be included as the tooltip instead of the Data Label that is in many cases an internal name that shouldn't be disclosed.
Prior to this fix, radio buttons and checkboxes placed in the sending experience were slightly lower and to the right of the field values that appeared in signing and the completed PDF. After this fix, radio and checkbox fields appear exactly in the sending user experience as they do in signing and the completed PDF.
Users will now see a link in the upper right-hand menu to My Profile, where they can manage settings related to their identity. This will open a new tab to complete the changes.
Users will see messaging in My Preferences that they can now change their identity information (email, passwords, company and title, address, etc) on My Profile. These settings will still be editable on My Preferences for a few months for all plans.
The Reports page will highlight ways in which your use of DocuSign is having a positive effect on the environment by replacing paper-based processes. We will display data estimating how much wood and other resources have been saved.
The name-number is the internal DocuSign issue tracking number for the bug.
The owner/creator of the template can see the template in the My Templates folder. As a workaround, if they click the template to go to the Template Details page, they can copy and paste the URL to the template into an email. When the Admins click that email link, they can access the Template Detail page (MAR- 26748)
The values do not replicate in the add field page or in signing unless the value in either the PDF or the blank value in the template is changed. The pre-filled form field values should replicate into the template because the label names are identical and population scope = envelope (MAR-27157).
When the customer starts the correction, the current authentication method is not displayed, and they do not have the option to add a new authentication method. The problem began with the customer phone numbers in the CSV file that were wrong, but we noticed that even when the phone numbers were correct, it also blocked the option to correct the authentication.
The authentication method will be available for correction (MAR-27730).
The Print button on the History window should present a result whose format better matches the history we display in-app, or the option for portrait or landscape view should be offered (MAR- 28190).
The timer was always set at 8 hrs at the time of page load. The problem with this was that, if a user refreshed the page, then timer was again set to 8 hrs from the time of page loadinstead fromm the time the token was acquired (MAR-28255).
As we have a radio button and group checkbox it is better to provide keyboard support to add extra radio button or checkboxes in a group.The focus should go to all the radios and then to the "+" to give the chance to the user to add an extra radio (MAR-28527).
