Template Email Subject Merge Fields

Call this endpoint to insert a recipient name and email address merge fields into the email subject line when creating or sending from a template.

The merge fields, based on the recipient's role name, are added to the emailSubject property when the template is created or when the template is used to create an envelope. After a template sender adds the name and email information for the recipient and sends the envelope, the recipient information is automatically merged into the appropriate fields in the email subject line.

Both the sender and the recipients will see the information in the email subject line for any emails associated with the template. This provides an easy way for senders to organize their envelope emails without having to open an envelope to check the recipient.

If merging the recipient information into the subject line causes the subject line to exceed 100 characters, then any characters over the 100 character limit are not included in the subject line. For cases where the recipient name or email is expected to be long, you should consider placing the merge field at the start of the email subject.

To add a recipient's name in the subject line add the following text in the emailSubject property when creating the template or when sending an envelope from a template:

[[<roleName>_UserName]]

Example:

"emailSubject":"[[Signer 1_UserName]], Please sign this NDA",

To add a recipient's email address in the subject line add the following text in the emailSubject property when creating the template or when sending an envelope from a template:

[[<roleName>_Email]]

Example:

"emailSubject":"[[Signer 1_Email]], Please sign this NDA",

In both cases the is the recipient's contents of the roleName property in the template.

For cases where another recipient (such as an Agent, Editor, or Intermediary recipient) is entering the name and email information for the recipient included in the email subject, then [[<roleName>_UserName]] or [[<roleName>_Email]] is shown in the email subject.

Note: If you use this field to set a specific email notification for one recipient, you must also set the email notification for the other recipients. Using this field for one or more recipients negates the Envelope Subject and EmailBlurb property settings.

emailRecipientPostSigningURL string
embeddedRecipientStartURL string

Specifies a sender provided valid URL string for redirecting an embedded recipient. When using this option, the embedded recipient still receives an email from DocuSign, just as a remote recipient would. When the document link in the email is clicked the recipient is redirected, through DocuSign, to the supplied URL to complete their actions. When routing to the URL, the sender's system (the server responding to the URL) must request a recipient token to launch a signing session.

If set to SIGN_AT_DOCUSIGN, the recipient is directed to an embedded signing or viewing process directly at DocuSign. The signing or viewing action is initiated by the DocuSign system and the transaction activity and Certificate of Completion records will reflect this. In all other ways the process is identical to an embedded signing or viewing operation that is launched by any partner.

It is important to remember that in a typical embedded workflow the authentication of an embedded recipient is the responsibility of the sending application, DocuSign expects that senders will follow their own process for establishing the recipient's identity. In this workflow the recipient goes through the sending application before the embedded signing or viewing process in initiated. However, when the sending application sets EmbeddedRecipientStartURL=SIGN_AT_DOCUSIGN, the recipient goes directly to the embedded signing or viewing process bypassing the sending application and any authentication steps the sending application would use. In this case, DocuSign recommends that you use one of the normal DocuSign authentication features (Access Code, Phone Authentication, SMS Authentication, etc.) to verify the identity of the recipient.

If the clientUserId property is NOT set, and the embeddedRecipientStartURL is set, DocuSign will ignore the redirect URL and launch the standard signing process for the email recipient. Information can be appended to the embedded recipient start URL using merge fields. The available merge fields items are: envelopeId, recipientId, recipientName, recipientEmail, and customFields. The customFields property must be set fort the recipient or envelope. The merge fields are enclosed in double brackets.

Example:

http://senderHost/[[mergeField1]]/ beginSigningSession? [[mergeField2]]&[[mergeField3]]

errorDetails errorDetails
excludedDocuments
[string]

Specifies the documents that are not visible to this recipient. Document Visibility must be enabled for the account and the enforceSignerVisibility property must be set to true for the envelope to use this.

When enforce signer visibility is enabled, documents with tabs can only be viewed by signers that have a tab on that document. Recipients that have an administrative role (Agent, Editor, or Intermediaries) or informational role (Certified Deliveries or Carbon Copies) can always see all the documents in an envelope, unless they are specifically excluded using this setting when an envelope is sent. Documents that do not have tabs are always visible to all recipients, unless they are specifically excluded using this setting when an envelope is sent.

faxNumber string

Reserved:

idCheckConfigurationName string

Specifies authentication check by name. The names used here must be the same as the authentication type names used by the account. These names can also be found in the web console sending interface in the Identify list for a recipient. This setting overrides any default authentication setting.

Example: Your account has ID Check and SMS Authentication available and in the web console Identify list these appear as ID Check $ and SMS Auth $. To use ID check in an envelope, the idCheckConfigurationName should be ID Check $. If you wanted to use SMS, it would be SMS Auth $ and you would need to add phone number information to the smsAuthentication node.

bccEmailAddress

Contains information about the BCC email address.

bccEmailAddressId string

Only users with canManageAccount setting can use this option. An array of up to 5 email addresses the envelope is sent to as a BCC email.

Example: If your account has BCC for Email Archive set up for the email address 'archive@mycompany.com' and you send an envelope using the BCC Email Override to send a BCC email to 'salesarchive@mycompany.com', then a copy of the envelope is only sent to the 'salesarchive@mycompany.com' email address.

email string

Specifies the BCC email address. DocuSign verifies that the email format is correct, but does not verify that the email is active.Using this overrides the BCC for Email Archive information setting for this envelope.

Maximum of length: 100 characters.

carbonCopy

accessCode string

If a value is provided, the recipient must enter the value as the access code to view and sign the envelope.

Maximum Length: 50 characters and it must conform to the account's access code format setting.

If blank, but the signer accessCode property is set in the envelope, then that value is used.

If blank and the signer accessCode property is not set, then the access code is not required.

addAccessCodeToEmail string

This Optional attribute indicates that the access code will be added to the email sent to the recipient; this nullifies the Security measure of Access Code on the recipient.

clientUserId string

Specifies whether the recipient is embedded or remote.

If the clientUserId property is not null then the recipient is embedded. Use this field to associate the signer with their userId in your app. Authenticating the user is the responsibility of your app when you use embedded signing.

Note: if the clientUserId property is set and either SignerMustHaveAccount or SignerMustLoginToSign property of the account settings is set to true, an error is generated on sending.

Maximum length: 100 characters.

declinedReason string

The reason the recipient declined the document.

deliveredDateTime string

Reserved: For DocuSign use only.

deliveryMethod string

Reserved: For DocuSign use only.

documentVisibility
[documentVisibility]
email string

Email id of the recipient. Notification of the document to sign is sent to this email id.

Maximum length: 100 characters.

emailNotification recipientEmailNotification

An optional complex type that sets a specific email subject and body for this recipient's notification email.

Note: If you use this field to set a specific email notification for one recipient, you must also set the email notification for the other recipients. Using this field for one or more recipients negates the Envelope Subject and EmailBlurb property settings.

emailRecipientPostSigningURL string
embeddedRecipientStartURL string

Specifies a sender provided valid URL string for redirecting an embedded recipient. When using this option, the embedded recipient still receives an email from DocuSign, just as a remote recipient would. When the document link in the email is clicked the recipient is redirected, through DocuSign, to the supplied URL to complete their actions. When routing to the URL, the sender's system (the server responding to the URL) must request a recipient token to launch a signing session.

If set to SIGN_AT_DOCUSIGN, the recipient is directed to an embedded signing or viewing process directly at DocuSign. The signing or viewing action is initiated by the DocuSign system and the transaction activity and Certificate of Completion records will reflect this. In all other ways the process is identical to an embedded signing or viewing operation that is launched by any partner.

It is important to remember that in a typical embedded workflow the authentication of an embedded recipient is the responsibility of the sending application, DocuSign expects that senders will follow their own process for establishing the recipient's identity. In this workflow the recipient goes through the sending application before the embedded signing or viewing process in initiated. However, when the sending application sets EmbeddedRecipientStartURL=SIGN_AT_DOCUSIGN, the recipient goes directly to the embedded signing or viewing process bypassing the sending application and any authentication steps the sending application would use. In this case, DocuSign recommends that you use one of the normal DocuSign authentication features (Access Code, Phone Authentication, SMS Authentication, etc.) to verify the identity of the recipient.

If the clientUserId property is NOT set, and the embeddedRecipientStartURL is set, DocuSign will ignore the redirect URL and launch the standard signing process for the email recipient. Information can be appended to the embedded recipient start URL using merge fields. The available merge fields items are: envelopeId, recipientId, recipientName, recipientEmail, and customFields. The customFields property must be set fort the recipient or envelope. The merge fields are enclosed in double brackets.

Example:

http://senderHost/[[mergeField1]]/ beginSigningSession? [[mergeField2]]&[[mergeField3]]

errorDetails errorDetails
excludedDocuments
[string]

Specifies the documents that are not visible to this recipient. Document Visibility must be enabled for the account and the enforceSignerVisibility property must be set to true for the envelope to use this.

When enforce signer visibility is enabled, documents with tabs can only be viewed by signers that have a tab on that document. Recipients that have an administrative role (Agent, Editor, or Intermediaries) or informational role (Certified Deliveries or Carbon Copies) can always see all the documents in an envelope, unless they are specifically excluded using this setting when an envelope is sent. Documents that do not have tabs are always visible to all recipients, unless they are specifically excluded using this setting when an envelope is sent.

Reserved:

idCheckConfigurationName string

Specifies authentication check by name. The names used here must be the same as the authentication type names used by the account. These names can also be found in the web console sending interface in the Identify list for a recipient. This setting overrides any default authentication setting.

To use ID check in an envelope, the idCheckConfigurationName should be ID Check $. If you wanted to use SMS, it would be SMS Auth $ and you would need to add phone number information to the smsAuthentication node.
