How to Create a DocuSign Envelope

Getting started

Leverage Customer data you've already entered in SecurityTrax with our DocuSign integration and easily create eContracts for your Customers to sign electronically. 

Complete the following steps in order, which include configuring your DocuSign account and contract templates to accept the appropriate information from SecurityTrax when an eContract is synced. 

Note: If you are part of a dealer program some or all of the following steps may be completed for you already. Please contact your dealer program provider.

  1. Provide your DocuSign credentials to your SecurityTrax account manager so they can get the API information from DocuSign and make the needed connection in your SecurityTrax site.
  2. Prepare your contract into a PDF document that we can use for the contract template in DocuSign.
  3. Schedule a call with us by clicking HERE to learn how to upload your contract as a template in DocuSign and how to edit the data labels so SecurityTrax can push data onto the eContract automatically.
