How do I create anchored radio buttons in DocuSign for Salesforce?


You must create a custom tag for each option in the radio button group.

  • The Group or Custom Tag Name value must match for all linked tags
  • The Tooltip and Anchor Text values must be unique.
  • "Required", "Read Only" and "Shared" can be set as desired, but must match between each tag.

As explained in the DocuSign for Salesforce Anchor Tag guide, the {r} placeholder must be used in the Anchor Text so the role number can be defined in the document.

Tags can be created in Salesforce (Under DocuSign Admin > Custom Tags), the New DocuSign Experience (Go to Admin > Custom Fields) or the Classic interface (Preferences > Custom Tags).
