Core offers the electronic signing feature for documents by partnering with DocuSign, the world leader in digital signing called eSignature, to automate your agreement and negotiation process. You can connect your company’s DocuSign account with Core to send documents, contracts, estimates, time and expense entry reports, and general reports for digital signing to any external clients, other Core employees, vendors or any contacts. Connection settings and default email details can be configured in the Integration screen for DocuSign.
Core has the ability to intelligently place default tags on documents when sending them out for eSignatures by scanning them for any embedded tags or placing a select few tags at the bottom of the last page. If no embedded tags are found, Core positions the Signature, Name, and Date Signed tags at the bottom of the last page. You still have the option to preview and adjust the placement of the tags in the documents. You also get to choose where to save a copy of the documents after they have been signed, including the main Documents screen or the Documents tab of the relevant screens. Core automatically adds the signed documents to the Documents folder of the entity (record) as separate attachments. For now, you can send estimates, budgets, documents and reports to be reviewed and signed electronically via DocuSign.
Note: This is a company-level integration where the Core administrator connects the company’s DocuSign account to Core by providing the account login credentials. Then other Core users are able to send documents to their contacts for electronic signing.
