Release Highlights - December 2018

Trusted & Secure Industry Leading Solution

The next step forward in recipient verification, Government ID authentication uses a government-issued document (passport or driver’s license/national ID in combination with a real-time image of the recipient) to provide a strong authentication of the recipient.

Content from the provided document is used to cross-reference public government databases, establishing the validity of the document.

Driver license and national ID cards use the image from the document matched to a selfie to validate that the document matches the individual.

OAuth support for CSC partners

Signers can access their TSP digital signature with third-party credentials (Google, Facebook, etc.) via OAuth authentication service, eliminating the need to manually log in to the TSP with a username and password each time. 

Adobe Sign is creating a new official audit report that will only be created at the completion of a signature workflow. “Interim Audit Reports” will be available prior to the official “Final” report.  This new report will be rolled out gradually to the lower tier customers with this release and to all enterprise and global customers early in 2019.

Included in this change, the time stamp for all events will be set to to a YYYY-MM-DD format with a GMT time zone.

Improved User Experience

Agreements sent using custom workflows will now be able to use a single existing document template and workflow definition to skip optional signatures and fields on the agreement.

For example, a library template created for two external signers, and one internal counter-signer can now be sent to just one external signer. The workflow will skip over the fields defined for the second signer, ensuring the counter-signer applies their information to the correct field spaces.

Integrations

Dropbox is launching a new "file actions" tool to their web-based experience where users can select individual files via the familiar Dropbox interface and with the new File Actions tool, send the selected file (Word Doc or PDF) for signature via Adobe Sign.

Adobe Sign's integration with MS Dynamics 365 has expanded to Dynamics 365 for Talent, so HR and hiring managers can bring e-signatures to offer letters delivered via Dynamics.

talent_365

Adobe Sign seamlessly integrates with HR Service Delivery applications and can be used to add trusted, legally binding e-signature features to any document.

ServiceNowAdobeSignNew3

Adobe Sign is now integrated with Workplace by Facebook, creating the ability for joint customers to seamlessly engage in an electronic signature workflow right from within the Workplace environment.

User Experience Changes

GDPR Cookie Management

GDPR rules require that users from the European Union grant permission before saving any cookies that aren't strictly necessary for the page to operate.

EU users that operate under the free or individual service level must agree to this stipulation to continue to use the Adobe Sign service.

Cookie placement only needs to be agreed to once (per device), and then users are not prompted to accept again.

Customers under a team, business, or enterprise service level will have an account administrator accept the cookie placement for the whole of their account. Discrete users will only be prompted to accept the cookie placement if they access Adobe Sign before their admin does.

Signers from EU based IP ranges will also be required to accept the cookie placement before they can open their agreements.


Improved interface for the Custom Workflow Designer

Enterprise level customers that use the Custom Workflow designer will have the improved designer interface enabled.

The improved interface will become the only option in the December release, and admins are encouraged to familiarize themselves and their user base with the new functionality.

Customers that still need time to prepare their user base may revert their interface to the legacy experience until the December release by:

  • Log in as an account administrator
  • Navigate to Account > Account settings > Send Settings > Custom Workflow Send
  • Uncheck the Enable new Custom Workflow send experience checkbox
  • Click Save


Improved accessibility for visually impaired signers

Adobe Sign's commitment to improving accessibility takes a significant step forward in this release.

The page layout for screen readers has been optimized by removing screen reader clutter, identifying the user controls immediately, and the ability to get directly to the agreement without having to download the PDF. Screen readers can now read the document directly from the browser.

 


Default full-screen mode for Adobe Sign UI

In order to improve the experience on smaller devices and provide a better reading experience on the desktop, the Adobe Sign March release introduced a more flexible Sign UX based on the width of the browser. 

This was initially enabled selectively for enterprise accounts and generally for all individual and team accounts. 

In July this became the default configuration. All new users were able to see the web UI adapted to the width of the page and stack components instead of shrinking them to fit a narrow width. Existing users retained the option to revert back to the legacy experience.

With the September release, all users have been moved to the new reflowable experience, and the UI controls to revert to the legacy interface have been removed.


Experience Innovation

Improve Widget efficiency by pre-populating field values with data from the widget URL. Eliminate the need to manage multiple widgets for near-identical forms.  Give signers a better experience by pre-populating fields they are not responsible for.  Give customers a way to author one widget but still segment/route responses to the appropriate stake holders or data analysts.

  • Navigate to Account > Account Settings > HIPAA Settings 
  • Check the box next to My Organization requires HIPAA compliance
  • Click Save

This setting suppresses notifications through the Document Cloud interface.

Experience Innovation

Do more with workflow automation

Enhance business processes created with Adobe Sign’s Workflow Designer. The new Custom Workflow send experience improves the sending experience with a modern reflowable design that aligns with the Send experience. 

Read more about the Workflow Designer improvements >

 

Note there are differences from the Send experience because custom workflow allows inserting Instructions on how to configure the Send experience.  The new Workflow Send places these instructions at the top of the page as opposed to the classic experience where they were adjacent to the send parameters.

Additionally, once the new interface is enabled, these new features are available through the workflow designer:

  • Use Library Templates that require signers to use Digital Signatures
  • Configure recipients to authenticate via phone-based PIN
  • Configure recipient groups to be defined on the Send page
  • Attach files from any enabled source on the Send page

 


Sign simple forms with a digital ID

Use the Fill & Sign tool to sign documents or forms with a cloud-based digital signature, regardless of the document format.  Just upload an agreement and place the signature.  

Of course, all of the previous capabilities of the Fill & Sign product continue to be available.   It couldn’t be easier!

Learn more about Fill & Sign >

 

 

SMS Verification Customization

Customize your SMS verification process with your company name to ensure your recipients know that the PIN number is coming from your company.

Read more about this new feature >

 

 

Expanded Compliance

GDPR

Customer account admins can fully comply with the European Union General Data Protection Regulation(GDPR) through direct control of the information collected from signers. Privacy Admins have the authority to remove employee user information from the system, as well as deleting agreements from signers that are no longer needed for business operations.

The GDPR compliance overview can be found here >

 

Three tools are available to support GDPR:

  • User Logs - Users are allowed to know what personal information Adobe Sign collects
  • Agreement Deletion - Privacy administrators have the authority to search for a recipient's email, review any agreements found, and delete any that are no longer of value
  • User Deletion - Privacy administrators have the authority to fully delete any user in their account

 

 

BioPharma enhancements

Allow for 21 CFR Part 11 compliance with any custom workflow in your account. 

The Workflow Designer now support digital signatures.

When Enforced Identity Authentication is enabled, the recipient is additionally required to authenticate when they click the Click to Sign button.  

  • This final authentication can be removed by request to your Success Manager

 

By default, the Adobe Sign authentication method inserts the email address of the recipient into the authentication panel. 

  • Your Success Manager can configure the default action to leave the email field empty 

 

The BioPharma overview can be found here >

 

 

FedRAMP Tailored

Adobe Sign fully complies with the FedRAMP Tailored requirements for all users, all service levels.

 

 

Cloud Signature Advances

Enhanced Cloud Signature controls

Adding granularity to the cloud signature pre-selection functionality, Admins gain control over which digital ID providers the signer sees based on whether they're internal or external to their Adobe Sign organization.

Customers that have a relationship with a restricted provider (eg: BankID) need to deliver their Account ID to that provider so they can enable access to the IdP. Your Account ID can be found just under the options for external signers.

Learn more about ID provider selection here >

 

 

RSA-PSS support

Support more secure signature algorithm. Complies with Germany-specific requirements for Qualified Electronic Signatures.

 

 

Cloud Signature Advances

Integrate with v6 REST APIs and Webhooks

Integrate Adobe Sign faster and gain new efficiencies with next-generation API tools, including an all-new Webhooks admin experience to create push notifications that can be used to update dashboards and trigger next-step processes.

Equip your sales teams to close deals faster with a completely redesigned user experience plus customer contact details from LinkedIn. And, automate your quote to cash process completely by embedding Adobe Sign into Microsoft Dynamics workflows.

May 2017

Discover new ways to automate business processes with powerful new options that address more use cases across your organization.

Take precise control of your document workflows by leveraging the new Recipient roles. This update is inserting three new roles: Acceptor, Certified Recipient and Form Filler (each with an accompanying Delegator role)

Signer Option

Go beyond fill-and-sign workflows. Let participants click to approve or accept, fill a form without signing, or delegate an action to someone else. Setup options also include the addition of cc recipients.

CreateAWidgetReleaseNotes

Let participants add a visible image to a document or form, such as a profile picture or driver's license. Form authors can easily add re-sizable image placeholders on their documents. Signers upload an image and have it dynamically size in place. Inline images can be extracted separately to support business processes that need to collect images.

Placed Image

Speed up document preparation. When enabled, the Authoring environment automatically recognizes and adds form fields to documents. Authors can accept or change the fields, and assign recipients if desired.

Candidate Field Flag

Usability enhancements in authoring

The Authoring environment is being polished to improve the understanding of fields as they relate to Recipients, and allow changing field types (Signature, Date, Title, etc.) within the field properties.

AuthoringImprovments9_1


Meet the toughest identity verification and compliance requirements. Get the flexibility and control you need to build signature and approval processes that meet exacting standards.

Offer an easy-to-use, high-assurance signing experience on web and mobile with open, standards-based digital IDs that comply with the most demanding regulations. Signers select their certificate-based IDs entirely within the native signing interface.

RCS Choice9_1

Comply with business processes that require business stamps, such as a 'received' stamp, a company seal, or a Hanko stamp in Japan.  The new Stamp field is an alternate Signature field. You can use it in addition to, or instead of a regular signature. Recipients simply upload an image once during signing, and the image replicates automatically across all the Stamp fields in the document. 

Stamps pre-post placment-new

Get the accuracy and auditability of electronic signing with handwritten signatures. Let signers fill, print, sign, scan, and return documents without a fax machine. Everything is captured and managed electronically, so you’ll get legible text plus signer verification data in the audit trail.

Three Steps

Forced review is an extension of the Explicit Consent feature that ensures knowledgeable consent on the part of the recipient by requiring them to open the Terms of Use and Customer Disclosure content before they can move on to the Signing portion of the process.

Forced Review Accepted

Adobe Sign natively includes guided navigation for signers, moving between and pointing out fields that need to be completed.  However, if you would prefer to not have that guided experience, you will be allowed to suppress it.

Hide Navigation small


Deliver exceptional, cross-device experiences for customers and employees. Let them shift effortlessly between desktop, tablets, and smartphones to keep business moving from anywhere.

When signing a document on your desktop computer, send a request to your mobile device where you can use a stylus (or your finger) to get a clean signature image and add it to your agreement with one tap.

phone

Modern experience default

The classic experience is being retired with the May release. Users across all plans will see the newer experience across Adobe Sign –including Send and Author – by default.

A new dynamic UI has been applied to the Create Template page, allowing users to create templates more easily on different devices and various screen sizes.

CreatTemplateUI 9_1

Only I Sign is being replaced with a new tool named: Fill & Sign. The new design includes a reflowable structure to better support a wider array of devices and screen sizes. New functionality includes the ability to upload and fill in form data, send a copy of the document to another party, and report on the inserted field content.

Complete form

API/Integration customers that embed the Send page as part of the application will have the new Send page delivered instead of the Classic page. Many of the new features exposed in recent releases are dependent on the new Send page architecture, so upgrading the page that is delivered via API opens the new functionality to existing API customers.

release notes

Extend your company’s brand with full HTML control over the content and layout of the “Please Sign” and “Signed and Filed” emails, including banner images, custom messages, and other visual treatments. Professional Service fees may apply.


Adobe Sign Mobile App

Let team members do more with their mobile devices. Make tasks faster—and life simpler—with groundbreaking new options in the Adobe Sign mobile app.

Scan and sign Android || iOS

Go from paper to e-signed—in record time.  Quickly turn any paper document into a PDF, then send for fast e-signing.

Easily read the fine print before signing by reflowing the text with a single tap on Reading Mode. Zoom in or out to change text size

Improved tracking and management dashboard Android || iOS

Track and manage document progress wherever you are. New, improved UI delivers better visibility into agreement status and lets users quickly send reminders, if needed.

Track and manage critical information without opening the Adobe Sign mobile app. Add the widget to your home screen to get instant visibility into agreement status or send a request for a new document to be signed.
