From Microsoft Corporation
Technical Bulletin MC246004

Message Summary

There may be times when managers need more formal attestation, such as a signature, before being able to act on an approval request. We’re working closely with key partners to allow Teams admins to enable electronic signature support within the Microsoft Teams Approval app (desktop and web).

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 81407.

When this will happen

In mid-April, the Approvals app will support Adobe Sign.

How this will affect your organization

We are adding a new type of approval request: eSignature approval. This is in addition to the existing basic and templated approvals and works for approvals inside or outside of the organization.

When a Teams admin has added a provider such as Adobe Sign, that provider will be available in the Approvals app when a signature is needed. The Approvals app will track the entire workflow, in context, within Teams.

Adobe will send an email to anyone listed as a signer on the request stating that there is a request for their signature. Internal signers will also get a Teams notification.

What you need to do to prepare

You must enable user credentials before anyone in your tenant will be able to use the Adobe Sign feature within Approvals.

Approvals app

Third party signature partners will appear in the Teams Approvals app by default. Should a Teams admin disable a provider, end users will not see the provider when creating an approval. You can disable providers during the public preview period.

Although Adobe Sign is our first partner, we expect to onboard DocuSign soon. We will communicate that with a new Message center post.
