Reassigning a Signatory

Once a document has been submitted for eSignature, you may find it necessary to reassign the duty of electronically signing the document to another person. A signatory can be reassigned from Novatus, in the DocuSign cloud, and in the Adobe Sign cloud.

Reassigning a Signatory from Novatus

1.  Locate the eSignature Package with the signatory you want to assign in the eSignature Packages portlet in your Dashboard.

  You can also reassign a signatory from the Submitted tab in the Document Packages browse screen in a Contract Profile or the Document Packages link in your My Place menu.

2.  Click  to open the Reassign DocuSign Signer dialog box: 

  • Select the current signatory in the Select the current signer you would like to replace list.
  • Select the new signatory in the Select the new signer you would like to assign list.
  • Click Save.

The new signatory will receive email notification, advising them that their eSignature is requested on a contract document.
