Adobe Sign for MS Dynamics 365 Release Notes

This document provides detailed information about the new features and changes that are included in the current release of the Adobe Sign integration for Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM

Opmerking:

Due to the updated API calls that enable the 9.3 functionality, customers upgrading their existing Dynamics 365 Online accounts from a version prior to 9.3 will need to recreate the real-time automatic status updates with Power Automate using the updated Template: Update Dynamics Agreement record on agreement state change in Adobe Sign.

Adobe Sign for Dynamics 365 v9.5
Online and On-Prem

The 9.5 update provides interface changes in the Home page for online environments, as well as the New Agreement and Admin Settings pages for both online and on-premises organizations.  

Updated Home page

The Home landing page (online version only) has been updated to provide a cleaner interface, with direct access to the most recently updated agreements owned by the user.

New Home landing page

 

Updated Admin Settings page

The Admin Settings page has been streamlined to better expose the options for administrators.

New Admin page layout

 

Updated New Agreement page

The New Agreement page has been updated to consolidate the security settings into the Options panel and remove legacy controls.

An Add me button has been added to the recipient's section. This option adds the current user to the agreement's recipient list.

Add me also allows the user to create an agreement for only the creator to sign, allowing for internal templates like time-off requests.

Additionally, the Authentication method can now be edited in the agreement interface by clicking the field and selecting the new method from a dropdown list.

New Agreement page layout

Signed/approved agreements provide information on the current status and next steps at the top of the recipient section:

Signed agreement notification

 

New Workflow Activity: GetAgreementId

GetAgreementId is used to get the IDs of agreements that are not created from within a workflow.

This Activity enables a user to create a workflow (using GetAgreementId as the first step) to return an agreement ID that can be used in subsequent steps (add recipients, add documents, etc.), providing a means to automate agreement manipulation when an agreement is created from the new agreement UI.

Sales Hub support

The Adobe Sign for Dynamics 365 v8 package extends functionality into the Sales Hub for customers that have deployed on Dynamics 365 9.x.

The Sales Hub makes available all of the Adobe Sign functionality for web browsers, tablets, and other mobile devices.


Multiple performance enhancements and bug fixes

The Adobe Sign for MS Dynamics v8 package is focused primarily on rearchitecting the solution to improve overall security and performance. Creating Agreements, data mapping, and agreement template process have been significantly improved.

Improved UI to align with the Dynamics 9.x web client UI refresh

The user interface has been completely redesigned to comply with the Dynamics 9.x web client UI refresh.

Both the Admin and User interface have been refactored to better expose available features in a more compact browser footprint.


Workflow support

Dynamics workflows are fully supported with the addition of six activities, two commonly used actions, and one fully prepared workflow.


LinkedIn Sales Navigator

The LinkedIn Sales Navigator can be exposed by the Dynamics Admin, allowing users to authenticated to their Team or Enterprise LinkedIn accounts, and retrieve the LinkedIn profiles for their recipients. 


"Quick Create" an agreement from a template

Users can Create a new agreement directly from the New (+) icon in the top ribbon.

Users only need to supply the Entity that is related to the Template they want to send, the recipient, and the actual template from a list.


Hybrid Routing

Hybrid Routing allows for a complex signature flow that includes both sequential signature steps, and parallel signatures in the same signature process by using the Recipient Order fields to indicate individuals, or groups of individuals in the same order step.

Templates have been greatly enhanced

  • Templates are built and controlled under the Administrators authority.
  • Templates are now tied to Entities, giving the ability to make functional templates that preformat agreements with recipient chains, custom messages, pre-attached files, and other options.
  • With templates becoming function based, Data Mapping is tied closely to template function, ensuring that as templates are used, the correct data exchange is taking place.
  • Templates now have an Auto-Send option that will send an agreement for signature once it is selected, without opening the configuration window/send page.


Only I sign

A new feature that allows a user to sign a document without having to involve any other recipients. This works well for internal documents where your team can selected documents they need to sign by themselves. 


Post-Sign URL redirection

Post-Sign URL redirection has been added, allowing you to deliver your signer to a web site of your choosing after they have signed their document.


Personalize agreements using field content from Dynamics

The Agreement Name and Message fields now allow insertion of Dynamics field values. Type a left brace { into the field, and you are presented with a list of field names from the entity that the agreement (or template) is tied to.  These field names will insert the related field content when the agreement is sent, creating an automated system for personalizing your communications.


Send Report for Signature removed

The Send Report for Signature feature has been removed for compliance with MSFT regulations.

 

Rebranded to Adobe Sign

You’ll see Adobe Sign where you previously saw Adobe Document Cloud eSign (or Adobe eSign Services for short) as evidence of the rebranding.

Elimination of the MS Silverlight dependency

MS Silverlight is no longer a required element to using the application. Browser support includes IE 9+, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari 3+

Full Mac Support

Mac users rejoice! Adobe Sign for MS Dynamics now fully supports users that prefer Apple systems.

Added auto provisioning of users through MS Dynamics

A new custom preference has been added for v5. When enabled, users who send agreements in MS Dynamics are automatically auto-provisioned with an Adobe Sign user account. 

REST-based APIs

To improve efficiency, flexibility and processing speed, Adobe Sign—and consequently the integration for MS Dynamics—has migrated from SOAP-based to REST-based APIs. 

Adobe Sign Library Documents

Administrators can store commonly used documents on the Adobe Sign server and make them available to all users via a drop-down on the New Agreement page.

Enabled MS Dynamics Turbo Forms

Turbo Forms can now be leveraged for quicker document generation

Personal Agreement Templates

All users have a personal Agreement Template to customize the default values for any new Agreement they open.
