In the modern-day of chatbots and virtual meetings, using pen-and-paper for signing documents seems archaic or medieval. Signing documents electronically is the norm and more so with secure digital signatures. That said, switching between apps to sign each time is also time-consuming. Integration of any external software like digital signatures with daily-use software is ideal and a necessity because it improves the ease of use for both the software and reduces the time consumed for switching apps.
DocuSign achieves this seamlessly.
Now let’s take a look at the integrations it offers within the Microsoft Suite. .
DocuSign integration for Office 365 seamlessly integrates with Office 365 applications like Microsoft Word, Outlook, and SharePoint allowing the user to sign documents right from the Office 365 application without the need to switch between other applications or a browser. The integration is seamless, allowing the user to directly log in to both the software from the same application.
DocuSign's integrated approach for signing documents allows users to create, edit, add content options like signatures, titles and decide the order of signatures by different receivers. Using DocuSign leads to a simpler workday for everyone, avoiding the tedious work of creating, mailing, signing, and numerous back and forths that would generally take place in a paper-based workflow.
DocuSign also allows senders to control the viewing, editing, and signing rights of documents. DocuSign integration with Office 365 allows recipients who don’t have a DocuSign account to sign a document without requiring an installation of software or account creation, making it very convenient.
These benefits coupled with the reduced costs of printing documents or space wasted downloading multiple software instances make DocuSign an ideal alternative to both its competitors and the traditional pen and paper.

Microsoft Teams allows people to stay connected and collaborate virtually without having to meet in person. This DocuSign integration makes using Microsoft Teams even easier.
