Our company is new to DocuSign and we want to put our company application on DocuSign. How do you successfully put auto filler so that the applicant can complete the application.

Hello, @Mr G.L.Hope 


Welcome to the DocuSign Community!


I’m not sure what do you mean with auto filler, if it’s related to a field when someone starts typing a text then the an entire phrase or expression shows up? As you do when typing in the Google search bar, right?


At this moment, we don’t have this feature, however I can suggest to you some good options as our millions customers are doing when they need something similar to your need.


  1. Create a Template with the form application.
    In a template you can add text fields to your applicant fill up.
    Also, you can add dropdown fields with information already prepopulated so the applicant just need to select a value.
    Every time you need to send a new Application form you only need to Use the Template, add the recipients then a new envelope will be created and sent. Easy and quick!
  2. In case your applicant form is a .PDF Form, when adding it to an envelope or template, the system detects it’s a form so you’ll get a popup window asking if you want to keep the values in the form fields or start with them in blank.

Here a short video explaining how to create a template.


Let me know if you have additional questions.
