Home page format and features

Overview

The Home page is designed to expose the common features that users need on a regular basis, providing access to sending agreements from templates and workflows, or the options to create templates as library documents, web forms, and bulk transactions.

Options in the Do more with Adobe Sign section are visible only when the user has the authority to access the feature.  

Feature access is controlled by admins at the account level (in Global Settings) or the group level (in Group Settings).
