How to delete an agreement document from your Adobe Sign account


Administrators have two options to delete an agreement from the Adobe Sign system:

Programmatic retention:

  • Deletes agreements automatically after they reach a terminal state (completed, abandoned, or expired)
  • Deletion takes place after an Admin established time span

Explicit deletion via GDPR tools:

  • Requires a Privacy Admin to find and explicitly delete an agreement
  • Entirely manual



Only Privacy Admins can use GDPR tools, and they can only delete agreements that have been generated by a user in their account.  

  • Non-Admin users that need to delete an agreement must contact their local Admin team.
  • Support may not delete agreements from the system
  • Admins do not have the authority to delete agreements that are sent from users in a different account.
  • Users that want to hide agreements from their view (vs deleting them) may do so under their own authority on the Manage page.
