June 2021 Release Notes

Release Date: June 29, 2021

Introducing DocuSign Subscription!

We are offering DocuSign Subscription as part of the SmartVault eSignature solution. The feature gives you the ability to enable DocuSign on your account, giving you the ability to route documents for signature.

SmartVault offers flexibility in billing for this feature:

  • Pay-as-you-go billing - you can purchase and manage an inventory of envelopes used to route documents for signature.
  • Subscription billing - you can add DocuSign on your annual subscription* to enable all SmartVault users the ability to route documents for signature.
    • There is no inventory to manage; users can use as many eSignature envelopes as they need throughout the year**.
    • *Subscription billing is only offered on the annual billing terms.

Switch from pay-as-you-go to subscription and enjoy more benefits and visibility.

**Reasonable Use Policy


      • DocuSign Subscription is available for all SmartVault customers on annual plans. If you are on a monthly plan, you can upgrade to an annual plan on your Billing page or contact our Support Team to assist.
      • DocuSign Subscription does not include Knowledge-Based Authentication (KBAs). To use KBA envelopes, they must be purchased separately on the Purchase Signature add-on page in SmartVault Settings.
