Transitioning to a new system is always tough, but transitioning to a new document management system  is especially difficult. As we transition from Dotloop to DocuSign, we wanted to create a reference that would help you find the key tasks you are performing in Dotloop, show you what it is called in the DocuSign system, and give you a link to training to help you learn how to do it.

Create a LoopCreate a Room

In DocuSign, a Room is the equivalent to a Dotloop Loop. This is where all of the forms are managed for a transaction, where you will give access to team members, and where you will send forms for completion and signatures.

You must create your DocuSign Room or Dotloop Loop from within the Opportunity in Command. If you create the Room/Loop directly in DocuSign, it will never be able to connect to Command for a seamless experience.

Add People to a LoopInvite People to a RoomIn DocuSign, you have the ability to invite team members, clients and vendors to join the Room. This will allow them to collaborate with you in the Room, by giving access to view or edit documents, depending on the Room role you set for that person.Click here to learn more.
Share Documents with People in the LoopShare Forms Access with Room MembersIn DocuSign, you have the ability to delegate forms access to other people who have been added to a Room. You have the ability to do this for a single Room or all Rooms, and you can revoke access at any time.Click here to learn more.
Add and Manage Documents in a LoopAdd and Manage Documents in a RoomIn DocuSign, you can add/manage all of the needed forms for either side of the transaction. These forms are uploaded and pre-tagged by DocuSign and organized into Form Groups for you by your Market Center. Click here to learn more.

Add details to a Loop to populate formsAdd details to a Room to populate formsThe Details page, in a DocuSign Room, is where all of the information for the transaction is housed. These details auto-populate corresponding pre-tagged fields in any form added to the Room. In addition, any pre-tagged field you complete in an added form will populate to the Details page, which will then auto-populate other forms.Click here to learn more.
Sync Opportunity Details with the Connected LoopSync Opportunity Details with the Connected RoomIn Command, we have built an easy button, which allows you to sync updated Opportunity information with your DocuSign Room. This information is added to the DocuSign details page and auto-populates into corresponding fields in forms you have added to the Room.Click here to learn more.
