Sending Quotes for Signature

Prerequisites

This guide is written under the assumption you have already successfully installed the SignNow for Salesforce package in your Salesforce account, and have knowledge of the SignNow components and how they work. If not, please follow the directions in the Quick Start Guide above.

*UPDATE* Sending quotes for signature is now done with an extension package with the latest version of SignNow for Salesforce. Please make sure you are running the latest version of the SignNow package by checking the version on Salesforce AppExchange and comparing it with the version you have installed in your Salesforce account – https://appexchange.salesforce.com/listingDetail?listingId=a0N3000000B5E7FEAV.

Updating to the latest package is easy, just click the Get It Now button and follow the instructions. If you already have SignNow installed on your Quote objects, you will be prompted to download the Quotes Extension package when you try to send a quote. Follow the instructions and you will be quoting from Salesforce in no time!

Template Settings Instructions

Prerequisites

This guide is written under the assumption you have the SignNow for Salesforce integration up and running already and have working knowledge of Salesforce and the SignNow integration components.

As a general best practice, when editing your SignNow integration, we recommend downloading the latest version of the package from the Salesforce AppExchange here https://appexchange.salesforce.com/listingDetail?listingId=a0N3000000B5E7FEAV. If you are up to date on your SignNow package, you may proceed with setting up your Template Settings.

Step 1 - Accessing the Template Settings Object

Select SignNow in the upper right corner of the Salesforce org menu.

Step 1 - Accessing the Template Settings Object

Select Template Settings tab. You’ll see your recent template settings displayed in the list.

Step 2 - Creating Your Template Settings

To create new templates settings click New.

Step 3 - Creating Your Template Settings

Now it’s time to add the details of this specific Template Setting. First, name your template settings.

  • Assign recipient roles. The roles must be entered in the following format:

[{"order":"1", "name":"Signer 1", "email":"somename1@somedomain.com", "allow_forwarding":"yes"},{"order":"2", "name":"Signer 2", "email":"somename2@somedomain.com", "allow_forwarding":"no"}]

Use the following syntax to load the data from the current object directly to the TemplateSetting (the Contact object in the example):

{Contact.Name}      recipient name loaded from the record field;
{Contact.Email}    recipient email loaded from the record field;
{Contact.Date}      date loaded from the record field, etc.

You can add as many fields as you need separating them by periods.

  • Check the Automatically Send box to send your document automatically with the SignNow 2.0 TemplateSetting button or SignNow 2.0 Template Settings & Pre Selected Template button.
  • Check the Skip to End box to make the document automatically open with the last step, skipping the document options settings.

Click Save to apply your settings and create a new TemplateSetting.

Next, copy the record ID from your new Template Setting Object URL and save it for later.

Step 3 - Creating a New Send Button For Your Template Settings

In this example we made our Template Settings for the Opportunity object, so we will add a button to the Opportunity Object.

Use the following code, and be sure to place your Template Settings record ID in the correct location:

https://cuda-signnow.na78.visual.force.com/apex/signnow_templates?id={!Opportunity.Id}&type=opportunity&template_setting=sf template setting id

Remember to select “Detail Page Button” for Display Type, “Display in existing window without sidebar or header” for the Behavior, and “URL” for the Content Source.

Step 4 - Creating a New Send Button For Your Template Settings

Then click Save to save the button.

Next, drag the new button into your object layout and save it.

Step 4 - Creating Template Settings & Pre Selected Template

Note that for the SignNow 2.0 Template Settings & Pre Selected Template button correct work you should replace sf template setting id in the button code (highlighted with yellow) with the Salesforce Template Setting ID and sn template id (highlighted with light magenta) with your SignNow template ID as it is described for the SignNow 2.0 Pre Selected Template button and the SignNow 2.0 Template Settings button.

Final Notes

You can create as many individual template settings as you want. For each different template setting you will need to create a new custom button by using the standard template setting button code and replacing the correct template setting ID. Always make sure the attachment you are sending has text tags with roles that match the roles specified in your template setting or else the process WILL NOT WORK.
