Employee On-Boarding DocuSign Instructions

Beginning Jan 2nd, 2019 the Future Hire form will change in order to help identify emplid’s earlier in the process.

The first change to the DocuSign Future Hire process changes the order in which the form is completed.  Currently, the requestor completes their section first, then the form goes to the future hire.  In the updated process the requestor will complete their entry second, after the future hire has completed their section and provided the SSN and Birthdate.

The second change to the DocuSign Future Hire process now requires verification if the SSN is associated with an existing employee / campus ID.  The requestor will perform a CSUID check and verify on the form whether there is an ID, and if so, enter the Empl ID so HRIS doesn’t create a duplicate ID number.

If the SSN is associated with either a student or employee record, the ID, name, and campus relationships will be displayed below in the input section.  If the ID information shows that there is a current active employee record in the business unit LBCMP, then the future hire DocuSign process should be voided (see instruction below of voiding a DocuSign Envelope. )  If the HR status is active and Business Unit is COCSU please continue the future hire DocuSign process to ensure the welcome letter and parking instructions are sent to the future hire.

How to cut and past from DocuSign

DocuSign does not allow a copy directly from an open document.  In order to copy a field such as SSN press the printer icon on the top of the page, which will generate a pdf which can be used to copy fields.  Keep in mind when pasting into CSUID search the dashes from the SSN will need to be removed.
