Screen Preview with explanations: 

For each “Template” added, you must decide who the Signer Role is by selecting amongst the options provided: 

3 Recipient Types:

  • The email address of the sender will be displayed to all Parties concerned. 

The first template is the “Consent Form". We must decide who will receive documents and who needs to sign/complete.

The second Signer Role was named Human Resources manager If the manager has an Atlas account, select “account member” if the signer does not have an Atlas account  select “External”and input their information.

Possible Error Codes in ATLAS/DocuSign

 Selected DocuSign template does not have any signers set. In order to use this template, please add signer(s) to it first in your Docusign account.

Please check recipients for the selected DocuSign template. One candidate recipient type must be selected.

 In order to use this template, please make sure to add a Signer Role and/or a Sending Order to all of its signers in your Docusign account.

Envelope Status

Every envelope that you create or receive through DocuSign, has a status. The status indicates the current state of the transaction.

 This list defines all of the possible statuses:

  • Draft. For an envelope you created and then saved without sending. Draft envelopes are stored in your account for 30 days from the date they were created. After 30 days, drafts are removed from your account and purged from the system.

  • Sent. The email notification has been sent to at least one recipient. The envelope remains in this state until all recipients have viewed the documents. (Shown in Reports and History only)

  • Delivered. All recipients have viewed the documents. (Shown in Reports and History only)

  • Waiting for Others. The envelope has at least one recipient who has yet to complete their action. The recipient status in the Details view shows whether the outstanding recipients need to sign (Needs to Sign) or view (Needs to View). From the Manage page, you can see whose turn it is to sign by hovering over the status.

  • Needs To Sign. You are a recipient and you need to sign.

  • Needs to View. You are a certified delivery recipient and you are required to view the document.

  • Correcting. The sender started to correct an in process envelope and has not yet saved his changes. In this state, any outstanding signers are unable to view or sign. The sender must either save or cancel his changes in order to move the envelope out of the Correcting status.

  • Voided. The sender canceled the envelope before it was completed. Recipients can no longer view or sign the document. Voided documents appear in your sending account as voided. You can still view and print the document, though it has a "VOID" watermark.

  • Declined. A signer has declined to sign.

  • Completed. An envelope is completed once all of the recipients have completed their actions.

  • Expired. A document that has exceeded its set expiration period without completing will expire. Recipients can no longer view or sign the expired document. Expired documents appear in your sending account as voided. You can still view and print the document, though it has a "VOID" watermark.

  • Delivery Failure. The email notification did not reach the recipient. Review the Details to see which recipient status is listed as Auto Responded. For this recipient, check the email address you entered and correct the document to fix any errors. From the Manage page, you can see which recipient delivery failed by hovering over the status warning.

  • Authentication Failed. At least one signer has failed the authentication check. You can either send a reminder to the recipients, which gives the signer another chance to access and pass the authentication. Or you can correct the envelope and modify the authentication setting. The envelope History provides additional detail on the authentication failure.

  • Completed or Voided - Purging Soon. This status indicates that your account is using document retention to purge completed and voided envelopes from the system after a set holding period. See Purge Documents for more information.

  • Completed or Voided - Purged. Your account document retention policy implemented a purge process on the envelope. The purge holding period has concluded and the envelope documents have been purged from the system. See Purge Documents for more information.
