Box Integration with Adobe Sign

This article applies to: Electronic Signature

You must have both a Cornell Box account (all faculty, staff, students, and affiliates have an account) and a Cornell Adobe Sign account (you must sign up for an account) before beginning.

When using the "Send for Signature with Adobe Sign" integration in Box for the first time, you will see a consent screen.

  Illustration of consent screen.

Click Grant access to Box. Adobe Sign will open in a new window.

If the Adobe Sign window doesn't open, you may need to allow popups in your browser. Add in your popup blocker to bypass this every time. To eliminate the popup window entirely, tell your browser to allow to set third-party cookies.

You'll see the Adobe Sign message template with the document from Box loaded in the Files section.

  Form for specifying recipients and the message that will accompany the request for a signature.

The document name will also appear as the first line of the Message section. When the signed document is returned, it will use this first line as the file name; you can change this text if you like. Using meaningful agreement names will help you keep your responses organized.

By default, the signed document will be returned to the same Box folder as the original document. You'll have the opportunity to select a different folder if you wish, after sending.
