As part of a larger release, many existing docusign templates had to be re-created/re-mapped to a new custom object. I copied templates and added custom tag 'shells' in advance of the fields being available in the salesforce org - with anticipation that I could simply modify the tags to add the 'relate to salesforce' and that would be that.
I have updated all the tags with the SF merge fields, but on the templates, the custom tags are still showing as the 'shell' tags that are not related.
If I re-add the tag within the document editing screen, it displays as the 'data' tab with merge field properties displayed, but the tags that are existing on the document itself do not have merge field properties.
Tried downloading/re-uploading a template to see if that synced them, but alas - no luck.
Obviously I can take several hours and reconfigure about 40 different templates, but I don't understand why if I have updated the tags that they wouldn't apply to the existing templates where the tags are used. Unable to find any documentation within DocuSign support that would help explain.
