Colorado College has a contract with DocuSign, a leader in online document sharing and digital signature workflows. DocuSign enables people around the world to securely and electronically sign documents, approvals, and agreements—on any device, in any time zone. Additionally, you can upload and share any documentation that is filled out on a regular basis, rather than repeatedly emailing attachments to people. Below is some introductory information to get you started, as well as instructions on how to request access to the training documentation and the tool itself.
If your department is already using DocuSign you can request an account from the DocuSign administrator in your area.
If your department would like to begin using the tool, please identify who in your area would be the main contact for DocuSign requests and contact ITS: to have an administrator account set up for that person.
Use Cases in Higher Education
Sending a document for signature
Setting documents up for reuse
Powerforms for self-service documents
Once you have an account set up you can access the training resources offered by DocuSign. These include the self-paced courses for end users who send documents through DocuSign, their how-to guides, the community support forum, and DocuSign University for Administrators.
If you have questions about how your department can leverage the DocuSign tools, please contact the Solutions Center and let us know.
