Create a new DocuSign account and integrate it with SmartVault

SmartVault administrators can easily sign up for SmartVault's built-in e-signature solution, powered by DocuSign.

If you have already created your DocuSign account via SmartVault, you can add SmartVault admins and users (employees) to your to DocuSign account for free. You can also help invited admins and users complete their DocuSign integration with SmartVault


  • Each SmartVault user that needs to send documents out for e-signature should have their own DocuSign login and password, or the administrator of the DocuSign account will get email notifications and updates on every document that every SmartVault user on their account sends out for e-signature.
  • Only SmartVault account administrators can create a DocuSign account via SmartVault or purchase e-signature Envelopes/KBAs.  SmartVault users (employees) can only send documents out for e-signature.
