Adobe Acrobat Sign: July 20, 2022

Improved Functionality

  • Require recipient name at delegation  -  The feature to require the recipient name when sending a new agreement (released in April 2022) has been improved to allow entering a recipient name at the time of delegation as well. Users can enter the recipient name when they click Delegate signing to another option on the signing page or using the delegate link in the email.

Review the Require recipient name documentation >

Delegation with required name values

Note:

The improvement of the delegation process is achieved by updating the delegation API to use the v6 REST endpoint /delegatedParticipantSets.

Customers should see no impact beyond enforcing the required name values configuration during delegation. If any delegation issues are noticed, contact Support.

Improved capacity for tooltip values

  • Improved searching for Team/Small Business service packages - The search functionality used to find agreements has been improved to support more complex string queries using special syntax. The upgraded search feature is scheduled to be deployed by tier of service over the second half of 2022.

    • The documentation for the improved search functionality is available in the online help documentation. A link to the documentation is provided in the application by clicking the information icon next to the search field:

Resolved Issues

Issue
Description
4331709 Summary:  A MISC_SERVER_ERROR is generated when replacing a recipient with a userID that is auto-delegating their agreements to a user that is not an active userID in the system.
Fix: Code has been improved to successfully identify and create the auto-delegate userID as a single-use user for the purpose of the transaction.
4345707 Summary:   Ambiguous tooltip information for signature/initial/stamp fields is causing confusion when agreements are consumed using screen readers.
Fix: The tooltips have been updated to better indicate the type of content required (initials/signature stamp). The localization of those tooltips has been updated and verified on common screen readers.
4346795 Summary:  An uninformative error message is delivered to the user when authentication is denied based on IP address restrictions.
Fix: The error message has been improved to indicate the failure to authentication is predicated on the account security policy.
4348930 Summary: Dynamic values used in Payment fields do not include Prefill values in their calculations.
Fix: The code supporting calculating field values for payment fields has been corrected to properly access and import values from prefilled fields.
4353603 Summary: Images fields disabled by conditional logic based on other fields still allow an image to be uploaded.
Fix: The code that disabled field access under field condition logic has been corrected to ensure the image field cannot be accessed
4354667 Summary: When two attachment fields are available on the same page, the application focus does not shift to the next field after completing the first attachment, and enters a loop.
Fix: The field navigation and setFocus code has been corrected to properly navigate the focus to the next field.
4354854 Summary: Pasted email addresses when verifying a web form signature do not properly activate the Click to Sign button.
Fix: The OnPaste function has been improved to better accommodate this action in a web form submission.
4354992 Summary: Reminder and Delegation emails could trigger a bounce from anti-spam filters based on a mismatch of the envelope and header values for the sender due to name-value management being inconsistent.
Fix: The From header in email is now consistently formatted as "firstname lastname <adobesign@adobesign.com>" when the first and last name are available.
4355581 Summary: Account scoped report charts could list the reports showing their reportID if there were null values in the report properties.
Fix: The reporting API for the new report system has been updated to better manage reports with null values
4359189 Summary: Email templates can display &amp; instead of & when applying the company name.
Fix: The code to properly format the company name has been corrected.
4359920 Summary: The country code for Kosova (+383) is not available when configuring SMS authentication
Fix: Added (+383) to the SMS list of available country codes.
4360266 Summary: When a user is changed to Inactive status, and then moved to another group, the CSV generated when exporting a user list does not show the current group name for the inactive user.
Fix: A new method for retrieving user data to export without checking user status has been implemented.
4360311 Summary: Email templates can display &amp; instead of & when the sender's name includes an &.
Fix: The code to properly format the sender's name has been corrected.
4361282 Summary: Requesting a new link (after the previous link has expired) on a Reminder email template would cause all participants to be sent a reminder email.
Fix: Corrected the reminder code to only send the reminder to the recipient that requested it.
4361868 Summary: Calculated date values in non-English locales can report "Server error. There was a field which had an invalid value"
Fix: Improved the translation of date formats for localized dates with regards to calculated fields and conditional statements.
4365756 Summary: Due to a conflict in how settings are inherited through legacy settings, user profile pages were presented as blank to administrators when editing.
Fix: Understanding and accessing the proper inherited settings has been updated to eliminate the conflict and provide the correct values.
4366715 Summary: Agreements built from two files can create broken records in the structure tree that result in a failed creation process (due to the process used to combine the structure trees).
Fix: The library used to combine documents has been updated to better manage the structured tree when multiple files are included in one agreement.
