More About Adobe Sign
Easy to create
Upload any popular document type or choose a previously uploaded template. Add fields to collect e-signatures and other information.
Easy to sign
Recipients follow the link emailed to them and then sign the document. No downloads or account signups needed.
As soon as a document is viewed or signed, you will be notified. Receive alerts when a request is set to expire, and send reminders.
Every step is recorded: when a document is viewed or signed. All parties receive a copy of the signed document.
New Look for Adobe Sign Email Notifications
Adobe Sign emails now look like Texas State thanks to new templates. We have created a new layout and used colors and fonts that reflect Texas State branding.
Starting in June 2019, you will notice changes when you receive emails for:
- a document being sent
- a reminder to sign
- notification that someone has signed
- notification that the document has been completed and filed
