Sending Documents and Using e-Signatures

The University of Dayton has two options for sending documents with e-signatures: Adobe Sign and Box Sign. If you are unsure which product you should use, contact the IT Service Center at (937) 229-3888.

Adobe Sign

Adobe Sign is a product for preparing and sending documents for e-signatures.  Once you set up your account, you can sign, create, and send documents from anywhere. Use of Adobe Sign at the University of Dayton is limited to purposes of processing documents for groups of individuals.

Box Sign

Box Sign is a product for preparing and sending documents for e-signatures, very similar to Adobe Sign.  It is available to Box users utilizing the web version of Box accessed utilizing your LDAP credentials. Use of Box Sign at the University of Dayton is limited to purposes of processing internal documents for one or two individuals.

NOTE: When using Adobe Sign and Box Sign, individuals can only sign contracts the University is entering into with outside entities if they have the signature authority to do so. If you are in doubt as to whether you have signature authority, please refer to the guidelines found here or consult with the Office of Legal Affairs.
