3398956 - [Onboarding] Candidates Document Flow is not updated in the dashboard despite completion of signature via DocuSign


In several cases when candidates Signature Status is not successfully updated in Manage DocuSign Envelope Page, customers tend to click on "Refresh Envelope Status" to update the signature status of the candidate via DocuSign Connect Configuration. However, it is observed that despite this refresh, the candidates status remains "Documents Downloaded" rather than updating to "Signed" Status.

  • Refresh Envelope Status" option from "Manage DocuSign Envelopes" page is used as a workaround in case of issues with automatic status update from the DocuSign connect configuration.
  • On several occasions, while applying this workaround, it is observed that customers confuse "Retry DMS Upload" button with "Refresh Envelope Status" button and this caused envelope MDF object to be updated with DOCUMENTS_DOWNLOADED state.
  • In such cases, BPE service task to fetch the documents from DocuSign fails since expected state of envelope is SIGNED and the new hire get stuck at signature step.
  • This is a Known Issue. Engineering Team are working on a fix for the same
