Signed documents can be downloaded from the envelope as long as the envelope is active and accessible within your DocuSign account. There is no limit on the number of times a signed document can be downloaded before the envelope expires. Users can download the documents multiple times without any restrictions while the envelope is available in their account.

Once the envelope is completed, the signed documents are generally stored in DocuSign and remain accessible for download until the envelope or the document itself is deleted or purged according to the document retention policies set by the account administrator or the specific settings of the envelope. Document Retention (

However, it is essential to ensure that the envelope or document is not subject to automatic deletion or purging processes which might be configured in the DocuSign account settings. These processes could potentially limit the duration for which the documents remain available for download if not managed appropriately​.

As long as the envelope is active and has not been deleted or purged, users can download the signed documents an unlimited number of times.
