Forms Builder

April 2022

What You Should Know

Important Updates

  • DocuSign. Functionality is enhanced to use the OAuth 2.0 framework to integrate with DocuSign. To continue working with DocuSign, values will need to be updated in existing and new DocuSign setting fields to implement authorization in the OAuth 2.0 framework.

  • Custom Content. With the introduction of the Custom Content feature, custom files in local file systems and references to files via Themes-Custom are no longer supported. All custom images, videos, styles, scripts, and custom .css files with references to logos, images, videos, etc will need to be uploaded to Custom Content. Files stored in Custom Content can then be referenced globally, dynamically, can be applied to sequences, or referenced at the form level.

  • V1 Activities End of Support. With the releases of Anthology Student 22.X and Forms Builder 4.X, V1 workflow activities will no longer be supported and should be replaced with equivalent V2 activities. However, any workflows created against V1 contracts will still work and will be supported.
