Adobe Sign (formerly EchoSign) is the electronic signature which speeds up the document signing process. The Adobe Sign services allow users to eSign documents and forms, send them to others for signature, keep real-time track of document status, get notified when people sign—or send reminders when they don’t, and maintain an audit trail automatically.
Adobe Sign services is only available for Faculty and Staff. Only users creating (or Originating) documents that need electronic signatures will need access. Signers do not require access to this system in order to sign documents.

|Cancel a transaction||There are many reasons why you would want to cancel an agreement that is out for signature or waiting for your signature. Only the sender of a document can cancel it. Once a transaction has been canceled, it cannot be resent. Canceling is a permanent action.|
|Agreement statuses||Agreements can have various statuses. They are categorized on the Manage page and all agreements are sorted into these various sections. You can filter by status and you can also search by status.|
|Share an agreement with another user||The sender of a document can share an agreement with any other individual. This functionality is useful for managers, or people who must see transactions that have been sent out.|
|Viewing the agreement audit trail||Once a transaction is sent, you can see who performed what action and when in the agreement history. This information is updated as each new event occurs and provides details on each event.|
|Replace a signer on a transaction||If you've sent an agreement to someone who is unavailable to sign, or if you've sent it to the wrong email address, you can get the document to the right person by replacing the signer.|
|Add a note to a transaction||Once the transaction is sent, you can add a note that only you can see. This note is only visible to the user who entered it, and only on the Notes tab.|
