  • The only information that a candidate can submit via Adobe Sign is their signature. No other candidate placeholders can be utilized with Adobe Sign.
  • Adobe Sign’s Enterprise plan is required for this integration (this plan may be listed as 'Professional' depending on the device you are using to access Adobe Sign).
  • The Adobe Sign integration is only available for customers on the LeverTRM for Enterprise package or with the Advanced Automation add-on. For customers on Lever's legacy package model, this integration is available on the Pro and Enterprise packages. If you have any questions about your Lever package, please reach out to Lever Support.
  • Only one e-signature integration can be enabled within a Lever account. If you are currently using DocuSign and are switching to Adobe Sign, please finish sending all in-progress offers before enabling Adobe Sign.

Sending an offer with an Adobe Sign e-signature field

If you are new to using offers in Lever, make sure to check out our help article on creating offers. You may also want to read our offer letter template guidelines.

During the offer creation process, a placeholder for an Adobe Sign signature link will be added to the default offer email template. You can use this placeholder anywhere in the body of the offer email, and edit the text "here" as you see fit.

Both the candidate and the Adobe Sign account holder will receive copies of the signed document. If there is a company signatory, they will receive the signed document as well. The date that the candidate signed an offer will be captured in a timestamp on the offer letter. An audit log will also be attached to the signed offer letter and sent to the candidate and employees, showing a record of any time the offer letter was opened and/or signed.

Troubleshooting issues with the Adobe Sign integration

Authentication error when enabling/re-enabling the integration

Adobe Sign may list a user as having administrator privileges when that is not actually the case. If you encounter an authentication error when attempting to enable or re-enable the Adobe Sign integration, contact Adobe Support to confirm that administrator privileges have been set up correctly for your account.
