You can correct the information in a sent envelope that has In Process status. This can be helpful if an envelope was sent to the wrong email address or incorrect routing order was used in the original envelope.
1) Find the envelope you want to correct in your Sent (or Out for Signature) folder and highlight it by clicking it in the list.
2) Click Actions > Correct.
3) The envelope is opened in the envelope wizard so that you can correct it (change name/email addresses, add documents, adjust routing order, etc).
Note: If you completely remove a recipient, you will also lose any associated tabs. It is best practice to make adjustments to the existing recipient in the list. Also, if you make any changes to an existing recipient’s name or email, or if you add a new recipient, a new notification will be sent automatically. You may also manually resend to any in process recipient by enabling the corresponding Resend checkbox.
4) If you need to change tab placement, add new tabs, remove tabs, etc. click Continue to get to the tagging page. Otherwise, click Correct. This will save the changes made to the envelope and resend notifications accordingly.
After sending the envelope, you are returned to the console.
Note: Changes are only allowed for recipients who have not yet completed their assigned envelope task. A new email will not be sent to recipients who have already completed their task.
I hope you find the Correct feature an essential tool for getting business done faster. Thanks for visiting the DocuSign Community!

Newbie - sent out my first Residential Purchase Agreement package to clients to sign. It would not go to first client - kept saying I needed to sign more. Went in to it & I could not get to send until I initialed the "Confirmation of Offer Presentation" space, which is not for me to initial - it's for the Listing Agent. It finally sent, but my initials should not be there & I don't know how to remove & it was only way I could get to send to Clients. What did I do wrong?

When I correct a document I am not seeing that corrected version was sent. When I click on the agreements out for signature, select the one that I corrected and look at the summary below it just has the sent date of when I originally sent the document. It doesn't show the date that the corrected version was sent. Is there a place where this information is stored?

I just looked in History based on the instructions however it doesn't show that I sent the correction today. It is still only showing when I initially sent the agreement.

I have just corrected an envelope and verified that it was recorder in the Envelope History.
Can you please try to correct one more time?

When you correct the envelope and change the recipient, an email automatically goes out to the previous recipient telling them they no longer have access to the envelope. Is there any way to customzie this email?

Yes, you can customize the text in the the email notifications that recipients receive.

Hello, I rarely use the correct feature but today I did and it produced undesireable results. Since I signed the document in full, I could not replace part of it which had an error without redo'ing it all (it was 140 pages so took an hour to put initials on every page!). So I used the correct feature to put a data box over the incorrect information (Warranty Period) and then next to it added another data field with the new warranty value. Both fields were not editable by the next signer. He had already signed most of the document prior to me making that one change. And when he went back in to finish signing, none of his initials, text values, signatures were there. He had to start over. Is this how the correct feature works?? If you correct one signer's fields, then he has to start over 100%. Of course I am not there with him knowing if he saved, but there were fields filled out when I corrected and those are all empty when he goes back in.
