How do I change my signature or adopt a custom signature? (iOS and Android)

Changing your signature style or creating a signature in DocuSign is a great way to customize and personalize the signing process.

Using the DocuSign native applications for iOS or Android, you can draw or take a picture of your signature to use in all of your signing sessions.

When you sign for the first time in DocuSign, you're asked to adopt a signature, but this can be changed at any time.


To adopt a custom signature, follow these steps:

  1. Login in to your DocuSign application
  2. On the home screen is the heading QUICK ACTIONS (you made need to scroll down past a list of recent documents)
  3. Choose Create/Edit Your Signature (note: Android app looks similar but here you may need to scroll past 'Recent Documents' to get to Quick Actions shown below)
