Using DocuSign in Your Area

DocuSign is a cloud-based service that empowers faculty and staff at Kent State University to electronically sign various kinds of documents and streamline a number of administrative workflows.  DocuSign has been identified as the accepted electronic signing solution for the campus and various use cases will continue to emerge as the service usage expands.

University faculty and staff DocuSign accounts are organized at the Department level. Departments must designate at least one DocuSign Template Administrator and a backup to assist Information Services admins in administering the platform.

Template Administrators are required to complete Information Services’ DocuSign Training. Once trained, Template Administrators can use TeamDynamix to request Department user account activation and set user permissions.

While approved for general use, there are still a number of work processes that have not yet begun using DocuSign. Before initiating a document workflow that includes another University Department (e.g. a processing office such as the University Registrar) please verify that the destination will accept DocuSign forms.
