An individual that is selected to witness a signatory's electronic signature on a contract document receives email notification of this request. The request contains a hot link to the DocuSign cloud where the individual provides their signature and full name on the document signed by the signatory, attesting to the fact that they have witnessed the signing.
The addition of a witness to a contract document is just one example of the way in which duplicate recipient email addresses can be used in the electronic signature process.
