Disappearing Signatures in DocuSign®
It has come to our attention that some members who have used DocuSign® AFTER the other party has used zipLogix Digital Ink® have reported that DocuSign® removes zipLogix Digital Ink® signatures causing them to “disappear”. After investigation, it was found that this is NOT a zipLogix Digital Ink® defect but rather an issue with DocuSign® usage. This appears to only occur when the DocuSign® user uploads the PDF directly to the DocuSign® website. We have alerted DocuSign® to this issue and they are continuing to work with C.A.R. to correct the issue when uploading PDFs directly to its website.
However, C.A.R. members that use DocuSign® should USE zipForm® Plus to send the PDF for DocuSign® signature. This process eliminates the disappearing issue entirely. For instructions on how to set up your zipForm® Plus Profile to use DocuSign® visit: on.car.org/esignprofile
Should you experience the above issue, please feel free to contact DocuSign® at 1-800-379-9973.
