DocuSign – Change Signing Responsibility

Key Takeaway

As a signer, you can opt to assign the signing responsibility to a different signer. If the envelope contains documents more appropriate to be signed by someone else, you can reassign the envelope to a different name and email address. Note: Depending on the settings the sender has enabled for your documents, this option might not be available.
