Zapier not populating DocuSign template when there is more than 1 recipient required to sign

Userlevel 1

Does anyone know a solution from the problem described below:

The fields will populate with the correct information in a DocuSign template, but only when one recipient is required to do a task in the envelope (sign, etc.).

Once a second recipient is added to complete a task (Sign,etc.)the envelope fields will not populate and requires each recipient to input the information manually into the document.

For example,

I’ve made an envelop template with 2 recipients

  • I’ll test the template with all the fields listed below for 1(RED):
    • Full Name
    • Address
    • Account Type
    • Signature
  • Now, I’ll assign the fields for 2(BLUE):
    • Full Name
    • Address
    • Account Type
    • Signature

Is there something I am overlooking or not doing? Will I need to use an API to have more than 1 signer in a template? If so, is there a good direction for me to look in on how to do that?

Does anyone know if there is this same type of problem with other services like PandaDoc?

All help is appreciated. It might be a simple fix, but I am not sure.

@SamB Thanks for letting me know.

For anyone looking for an alternative solution - PandaDoc works perfectly fine with completing what I’ve described above!

@SamB  please add me to that list as well. Keen to know it is resolved.


How many days ago was it reported with Docusign?
