To configure Acrobat Sign for Workday, you need to generate the following two dedicated objects in the Acrobat Sign system:
A Workday group: Workday requires a dedicated “group” within the Acrobat Sign account to enable integration functionality. The Adobe Acrobat Sign group is used to control only the Workday usage of Acrobat Sign. Any other potential usage, such as Salesforce.com or Arriba is not impacted. The email notifications are suppressed in the Workday group so that the Workday users only receive notifications within their Workday inbox.
An authenticating user to hold the integration key: A Workday group must have only one group-level administrator, who is the authoritative holder of the integration key. We recommend that the administrator use a functional email address such as HR@MyDomain.com instead of a personal email to reduce the risk of having the user disabled in the future and consequently disabling the integration.
In the dialog that opens, provide the new user details:
To complete the connection between the Workday client and Adobe Acrobat Sign, a trusted relationship must be established between the services. Once the relationship is established, each business process in Workday can have a Review Document step added to enable the signing process via Adobe Acrobat Sign.
To create a trusted relationship:
The document for the Review Document Step can be either one of the following:
You may add any of these docs with Adobe Text Tags to control the look and position of the Adobe Acrobat
Signing-specific components. The document source must be specified within the business process definition. It is not possible to upload an ad-hoc document while the business process is executing.
Unique to using Adobe Acrobat Sign with a Review Document Step is the ability to have serialized Signer Groups. This allows you to specify role-based groups that sign-in sequence. Adobe Acrobat Sign does not support parallel signing groups.
For assistance configuring the Review Document Step, refer to the Quick Start guide.
Workday is the integration owner and should be your first point of contact for questions about the scope of the integration, feature requests, or problems in day to day function of the integration.
You may refer to the following Workday community articles on how to troubleshoot the integration and generate documents:
Adobe Acrobat Sign is the integration partner and should be contacted if the integration is failing to obtain signatures, or if notification of pending signatures fails.
Adobe Acrobat Sign Customers should contact their Customer Success Manager (CSM) for support. Alternatively, Adobe Technical Support can be reached by phone at 1-866-318-4100, wait for the product list then enter 4 and then 2 (as prompted).
The document status in Workday may not reflect if the candidate does not click the ‘Submit’ button after signing in Adobe Acrobat Sign.
As per Workday task Check eSignature Signing Status: To start the process, the user can submit the associated Inbox task.
As per Workday Development: The original signing completes the process only if the user submits the inbox task after signing the document. After signing, the iframe is closed and the user is redirected to the same task where they can click the Submit button to complete the process.
