Are DocuSign documents still legally binding if you change the file name of the document?

I couldn’t find the answer to this question anywhere. In other electronically signed procedures, the legal validity of the document is contingent upon the file's name. If you change it, the document loses its validity. Is this also the case with DocuSign?

Thank you.

No, the file name does not impact the legal validity of the document. You can rename the document without problems.
