Hi, I recently upgraded to a business pro account but I do not have access to the “forms” tab for power forms and web forms. Are webforms only available for Enhanced plans?

@brnbrn The first item I would have your DocuSign Admin check is the Permission Profile that is assigned to your User. The “Web Forms” is a permission that needs to be granted to Users in the form of the Web Forms dropdown in the Permission Profile which is set to either “none” or “Create”. Powerforms operate in the same fashion so my first guess would be you do not have the Permission Profile required to create Powerforms or Web Forms but that requires your DocuSign Admin to check.  If the Admin sees no options to enable these in the Permission Profile then it likely is the Account plan doe snot have access to these features.

Hi @brnbrn and @MonikaJones,

 

I hope you are doing well.

 

To confirm have you tried the below troubleshooting:

 

  • Clear cache/cookies
  • Try a different browser(s)
  • Try an Incognito window
  • Try a different device
  • Try a different Internet network, such as on a mobile device using data with Wi-Fi disabled.
  • Try using VPN, or if on one already, disconnect from VPN and try again

Let us know if you need further assistance with this.

 

Best regards,

@MonikaJones @brnbrn Many Admins are given the default DS Admin permission profile.  I would suggest creating a new Permission Profile, since you cannot alter the DS Admin, and give the new Permission Profile “all” permissions as well as checking whether the “Forms” permissions are available in this new Permission Profile.  If the new Permission Profile has all permissions (Admin etc) as well as Forms, then save that Permission Profile and see if you can update your own Permission Profile to this new custom Admin. Usually I only recommend such an action if you have two Admins on the Account and can set the Permission Profile back if something goes wrong.  

If you do not see “Forms” as a Permission Profile option, this could mean your Account features do not include this ability and you need to create a Support case or contact your DocuSign Rep to see if this should be available and have them turn it on for your Account.

Is there any answer to this other than contacting the support team to enable this? I know several people who can’t find an answer to this and support is zero help
