The Office of Technology Services (OTS) is happy to announce that beginning Friday, December 18, 2020, DocuSign will be available to faculty and staff! DocuSign is an electronic signature tool that will make it easier to execute contracts and other documents remotely.
When you log in to the myIIT portal and click on the menu in the top, right-hand corner of your screen (please see below), you will notice a new DocuSign icon. For your convenience, DocuSign has been configured with Single Sign-On so you do not need to re-enter your IIT credentials when accessing the app from the portal.
HOW TO REQUEST A USER ACCOUNT
DocuSign is for work-related use only and is available to faculty and staff on a paid, limited-subscription basis. If you are interested in getting a DocuSign user account, please first obtain your supervisor’s written approval and then email that approval along with your user-account request to the Support Desk at email@example.com.
Prior to requesting a user account, if you did not attend the live training sessions, you will be required to view all three of the recorded DocuSign foundational training sessions (i.e., “DocuSign 101,” “Template Creation 101,” and “PowerForms 101”) to ensure that you know how to create and send efficient “envelopes” that contain all of the documents the receiver needs to sign, rather than sending the recipient piecemeal pages in multiple envelopes. The university’s DocuSign subscription has only a limited number of envelopes.
Please note: By sending a request for a user account, you are acknowledging that you have completed the training in full. Any misuse of your account may lead to your DocuSign privileges being revoked and/or negatively impact your department’s budget with the incurrence of fees that could have been avoided. Envelope ‘sends’ will be regularly monitored. Please send responsibly.
As a reminder, you must be an authorized signatory, as outlined in the university’s Policies and Procedures Handbook to sign on behalf of Illinois Tech.
