Document Collaboration Gateway E-Approvals & E-Signatures: Signing Documents

Once the link to the Document Collaboration Portal is clicked, on the next screen, a participant can click Reject Document(s)/Process from the Actions Dropdown Menu to cancel the entire process. Clicking this rejects the entire signature process. The participant is first be asked to submit a reason why the process is being rejected. Anyone who has already taken action on the document will be alerted as well as the employee assigned to oversee the process. This button should only be used if the participant no longer wants the process to continue. If the process is rejected, a new process has to be started if necessary.

External eSigning

As an alternative to CobbleStone®'s signing gateway, the External eSign is available for license. The External eSign Manager can connect to Adobe Acrobat Sign or DocuSign. If connecting to DocuSign, CobbleStone®'s connector works with OAuth for clients utilizing a single sign-on system.

Prompt Before Signing / Approving

This is a new feature to CobbleStone® that enables companies to add their own Terms and Conditions, which the Signer must accept before they can sign the document. The Admin of the system can Enable or disable this feature, as well as edit the Terms and Conditions section. Only once the signer accepts the Terms and conditions, will they be allowed to sign the document. The system will log the date and time when the Signer accepted the Terms and conditions. If the Signer had previously opened the same document and agreed to the Terms and Conditions, they will not be asked to accept the Terms and Conditions again for that document as the signer already accepted it previously.

Terms and Conditions Bar


Admins may choose to Disable / Enable this feature in their system. To do so, go to :

Manage Setup > Application Configuration > Config Settings

In the drop down box to select Configuration Group, choose Document Authoring.

You’ll see 2 App Config settings associated with this feature :

1) Terms and Conditions: Enabling this will make the Signer first agree to the Terms and Conditions before he / she can sign the document.

2) Terms and Conditions Content: The Terms and Conditions content to show the Signer.
