On This Page

In order to set up Power Automate for SharePoint and Adobe Sign, you need an enterprise Adobe Sign account as well as a SharePoint account.

Set up Power Automate in Outlook on the web

1. Log in to Outlook on the web.

2. Click on the App Launcher menu in the upper left corner.

Menu will be at the top left of the screen to the left of the word Outlook, as a 9x9 series of blocks or dots

3. Choose Power Automate from the list of applications. The Power Automate start page will open.

If you've never used Power Automate, select All Apps and choose Power Automate from the available list.

The icon for Power Automate is a blue tri-color arrow. Find the All Apps option at the bottom left of the app listings.

4. Click Create on the left menu. Workflow options will appear.

Create will be the fourth item in the left menu of the start page.

5. Enter Adobe Sign SharePoint in the Search all templates field.

The dialog box is located at the lower right corner of the screen.

6. Click the Save an Adobe Sign completed agreement to SharePoint library. You may see several tiles with the same name; select the one that includes By Adobe. It will probably be the first tile.

You have now set up Power Automate.

Use Power Automate to Sign in to Adobe

1. Open a new browser tab. Log in to Cornell Adobe Sign.

2. Go back to the Power Automate tab on your browser. On the lower part of the screen, to the right of Adobe Sign, click Sign in.

This option will be toward the bottom of the screen, not the tile at the top.

3. Click Allow Access. You will return to the Power Automate screen in Outlook for the web. 

Allow Access button is on the bottom left of the dialog pop-up.

You are now signed in to Adobe through Power Automate. You should not need to sign in again.

Use Power Automate to Sign in to SharePoint

1. On the lower part of the screen, to the right of SharePoint, click Sign in

This option will be toward the bottom of the screen, not the tile at the top.

You are now signed in to SharePoint through Power Automate. You should not need to sign in again.

Create a Workflow in Power Automate

A "workflow" is a sequence of steps that you assign in order to place a copy of your signed Adobe form in the proper SharePoint library.

1. Click Continue once you have used Power Automate to sign in to SharePoint. You will go to a workflow setup screen.

2. In the Adobe When an agreement workflow is completed successfully area give your workflow a descriptive title in the Name field.

The name field is the first field - be succinct but descriptive.

2. In the SharePoint Create file area click on the down arrow at the very right of the Site Address field. Choose from the list of available SharePoint locations.

The folder icon is on the right side of the Site Address field. You can also type the path directly into the field.

3. Click on the folder icon to the right of the Folder Path field. This will list your SharePoint folders. Choose the folder where you want the copies of your completed Adobe Sign documents to be saved.

You will only be able to select from folders that already exist in your library.

After you select your folder you may see a list of parameters. For the purposes of setting up the Adobe Sign/SharePoint connection you can disregard them.

4. Click Save. You have now created your workflow.

Test the Connection 

Sign a test agreement in Adobe Sign. You should see a copy of the agreement show up in your designated SharePoint folder. If you don't see this copy, click History for what may have failed, and how to correct it.

Analytics Tools

1. Click on My flows in the left-hand menu.

My Flows should be the third menu item.

2. Click on Save an Adobe Sign completed agreement to SharePoint. These tools show you a log of every time the workflow ran (you should see at least one from your testing).
