PURPOSE


The DocuSign Community is a peer-to-peer and direct support channel for people using DocuSign Software. It is central for education and thought leadership on best practices, where we also collaborate with customers directly on how to improve and extend the product platform.

Enterprise communities are communities created by business organizations for their customers, partners, or other enthusiasts. Although this community is designed for DocuSign customers, partners and employees, we welcome anyone with an interest in e-signature to participate in public areas. We expect all to observe the community rules of conduct set forth in these Terms of Service.
