Creating Adobe Sign agreements using data from Dynamics 365 and Dataverse records after installing Adobe Sign for Microsoft Dynamics 365 can be processed in different ways based on the client requirements or creating these agreements.
The process of creating agreements
From my experience working with Adobe Sign and Dynamics 365 generating agreements, the process can vary depending on how the agreement is created (either manually or automatically) and the type of documents included in the agreement.
