You can use Taxbotic's DocuSign integration to get the documents signed by the clients and track them in one place. The documents are uploaded and signed through DocuSign. However, the signed documents can be tracked inside Taxbotic in one place.

The integration with DocuSign is third-party integration. The documents sent for signing are handled through DocuSign. Taxbotic doesn't have built-in functionality to do this inside the app.

Before using DocuSign integration, you have to allow permission for Taxbotic and Docusign to interact with each other. This is done when you are linking your DocuSign account with Taxbotic. We are not liable for any unauthorized access, hacking or events leading to the loss or theft of data in DocuSign.

Any documents signed through the Taxbotic <> DocuSign integration are available for viewing/downloading in the Engagement Info tab of your client's profile window.

Any documents sent to the clients through the Taxbotic <> DocuSign integration will be received by the clients in their email accounts. These documents do not appear on the client side in the Taxbotic platform.

For DocuSign integration to work, you must have a DocuSign account set up outside Taxbotic. If you don't have an account, you should create one by visiting this link. Once the DocuSign account is set up, you must link up your DocuSign account with Taxbotic. To do so, you need three items as follows.

  • API Account ID

  • Integration Key

  • Client Secret

Here are the steps to find these items from your DocuSign account.
