Defining the recipients for your DocuSign documents

Updated on April 6, 2022

The pyAssignRecipientsToEnvelope data transform is referenced in the pyPrepareNewEnvelope data transform and allows you to define the recipients for your documents.

You can do the following actions by using this data transform:
  • Specify which recipient should sign which of your documents.
  • Optional: Define a routing (signing) order for your recipients.
  • Optional: Authenticate the transaction. You can use SMS and email authentication.
  • Specify DocuSign tabs that represent interaction points on your document and are associated with a specific recipient. The hotfix package that you installed supports signature tabs, check box tabs, text field tabs, and initial tabs.
  1. In the header of Dev Studio, search for and select the pyAssignRecipientsToEnvelope data transform.
  2. On the Definition tab, configure the following steps according to your business needs:
