Don't use UT DocuSign accounts for:
- Don’t route documents via DocuSign to processing units or approval signers that have not yet provided instructions for proper routing.
- Don’t exchange documents or signatures between university healthcare providers and clients, patients, or clinical test subjects
- Don’t share accounts. Signers can sign at any time from almost anywhere in the world. But if you know that a signer will not be available, use DocuSign routing features and document logic to allow another signer to be recorded as a proxy signer.
