Manage page format and features

Overview

The Manage page contains the records of the agreements that a user has sent as well as any agreements shared or sent to the user from a trusted source.

In addition to agreements, the user can select to access the library templates, web forms, and bulk emails generated/owned by the user.

Users who have accounts shared with them can change the displayed content from their personal data to a view of the shared account's content (with some limitations regarding the available actions).

Overview

Layout and functionality

The central listing of records

The middle section of the Manage page loads a listing of agreements by default.

  • If agreements are waiting for the user's action, the Waiting for You filter is automatically selected.
  • If no agreements are waiting for the user, the In Progress filter is automatically selected.

This list is initially sorted by the "Modified" date, with the most recently modified agreement being at the top.

Clicking any column header sorts the list by that value in either descending order. If the header is clicked again, the sort order is reversed.

The left rail filters

The left rail of the window shows a list of filters for agreement statuses (at the top) and a group of template objects (at the bottom).

Selecting any filter populates the central list of agreements/templates accordingly.

Filter list

There are two "active" statuses. Each indicates the volume of content parenthetically after the status name:

  • In Progress (N) - Agreements returned in the In Progress status are waiting for participants to complete their actions. Agreements that are waiting for the logged-in user are not returned
  • Waiting for You (M) - Agreements waiting for the logged-in user are captured in the Waiting for You filter.   

There are three "terminal" statuses:

  • Completed - Agreements that are wholly and successfully resolved 
  • Canceled - Agreements that are abandoned for any reason. This includes: 
    • Agreements canceled by the sender
    • Agreements declined by a participant
    • Agreements that are terminated due to repeated failure to authenticate
    • Agreements that suffer from a system error that causes the agreement to become unviable
  • Expired - Agreements that reach an expiration date and are closed automatically

The Draft status contains all of the partially built agreements, typically awaiting field placement.

The template filters contain only the "parent" templates used to generate "child" agreements. The child agreements are captured in the (above) agreement filters.  

Parent templates are not agreements themselves but are used to produce high volumes of individual agreements. These parent objects include:

  • (Library) Templates - All of the document and field templates that are available in your document library.
  • Web Forms - Web forms (previously known as Widgets) are agreement templates that can be delivered as links or embedded into web pages.  Web forms are signer initiated, generating a child agreement for every participant that completes the signature process.
  • Bulk sends - Send in Bulk templates (previously known as Mega Sign) accept a list of individual recipients to generate a high volume of discrete agreements using the same form(s). Each agreement is a discrete transaction; the individual recipients are unaware of the others (i.e., Sending an internal expense policy to all employees).

 

Search functionality

The Search bar and accompanying Filters button allow for precise search criteria to help find agreements in what can quickly become an overwhelming number of transactions.

The right rail context menu

Selecting (single-clicking) any record in the center list triggers the right rail to pop out a context-based menu of actions and metadata relevant to the selected object.

Open agreement

The right rail context menu has different options based on the user's tier of service (individual, enterprise, etc.), the object selected (agreement, web form, etc.), the status of the user (admin, user), and the status of the object (active, in-progress, complete, etc.). If you don't see an option/feature that you expect to be available, check with your administrator to see if you are limited by design (setting configuration, user authority level) or availability (tier of service).

 

The shared account selector (Optional)

Accounts that have enabled account sharing can click the Your Agreements title to open a list of the accounts currently shared with the user. This list acts as a filter that populates the manage page with the contents from the selected user or group. The option to choose All shared agreements is also available.

Upon selecting an option:

  • the clickable title changes to the name of the filter
  • the central list of records is populated with the shared content
  • two new columns are added to the list of records to indicate the source of the content: 
    • GROUP - the group that contains the record
    • SHARED BY - the name of the user sharing the content
Shared account drop-down

Accounts that have Advanced Account Sharing enabled can switch between the shared user accounts to possibly view, send, and sign agreements on behalf of the user (depending on how sharing is configured):

  • Mouse over your name in the upper-right corner of the screen
  • Click Switch Account
  • Select the user account you want to switch to and click OK
Switch Account

Switching to another user's account allows the logged-in user to send agreements on behalf of the "switched to" account:
