DocuSign Demo App

I created this demo app using PowerForms to try and impress the developer evangelism team at DocuSign.

DocuSign Demo App

Update - Feb 27 πŸ”—οΈŽ

I applied for a β€œDeveloper Evangelist” job at DocuSign and was one of two finalists.

I did not end up getting the job and actually felt a much less qualified candidate was able to get the job due to bias but overall, they had a really engaging interview process and everyone was super nice so kudos to DocuSign.

The work you can find below was part of my attempt to better convince the developer evangelism team that I’d be a good fit.

I have since removed the PowerForm that I created but the PowerForm looked like this.

I also created a presentation for this interview on Demystifying Meltdown & Spectre.

More details on my unsucessful but engaging interview process can be found on Glassdoor.

Creating Your Own PowerForm πŸ”—οΈŽ

Check out the DocuSign documentation for how to create your first PowerForm.

The code is really simple and looks like the following for this site:


    <div class="field half first">
        placeholder="Your name"
    <div class="field half">
        placeholder="Your email"
    <div class="warning-message">
      You didn't fill out the form entirely. Try filling it out? πŸ˜…
    <ul class="actions">
        <button onclick="docuSign()" class="button big">

JavaScript πŸ”—οΈŽ

Note that I am using jQuery as a dependency.

// initially hide warning message
// open in new tab
function openInNewTab(url) {
  var win =, "_blank");
// DocuSign
function docuSign() {
  if (!$("#applicantEmail").val() || !$("#applicantName").val()) {
    // if no values, show warning message
  } else {
    // set PowerForm url
    var url =
    // set email
    url += "&Applicant_Email=" + encodeURIComponent($("#applicantEmail").val());
    // set name
    url +=
      "&Applicant_UserName=" + encodeURIComponent($("#applicantName").val());
    // set updated URL

There’s also this useful YouTube video that gives a technical overview of how PowerForms work.

Thanks Aaron & Dewey for the useful tutorial!

DocuSign Developer: PowerForm Integration Demo

DocuSign Developer Center - Aaron Liao talks with Dewey Wald, DocuSign's Principal Software Architect. In this second demo discussion with Dewey, you get to see a PowerForm integration scenario. We will create a template, convert it to a PowerForm, and then show the integration of a button to launch the form from your website.
