Bring Back Sign Dashboard - Cloud is Terrible
Bring back the Adobe Sign Dashboard. That was a great dedicated contract tracking and managing tool. Tracking and managing contracts is essential to businesses and doing it well can significantly impact profits.
The "all-in-one" Adobe Cloud tool is vastly inferior to Dashboard for tracking and managing agreements. Cloud eliminates or buries functionality Dashboard offered. Instead of Dashboard’s clean, organized categorization of agreements by status (signed, out-for-signature, etc.), Cloud intermingles critical agreements with insignificant documents. Cloud attempts organizing this cacophony of documents through preset groupings and filters you can manually apply. The huge short-comings of these features are exacerbated by the Cloud interface unbelievably failing to state the name or email address of who an agreement was sent to. This means that to locate a specific agreement, you have two obvious choices. First, manually group and filter all documents to locate a category of agreements that you then must open one-by-one (you need to reapply the filter every time you exit an agreement). Second, perform a search for a name or email address (you better remember the correct spelling or exact email address). You can no longer just look at who you sent agreements to, who signed, which are canceled, etc. Not very useful when you send the same agreement to multiple groups for their signatures.
Adobe Cloud is simply inefficient and ineffective for tracking client agreements, and it is unsuited for fast-past businesses requiring quick, reliable information to establish and manage client relationships. Replacing Dashboard with Cloud was either just a very poor choice, or a cost saving move at the expense of Adobe’s users.
Thanks for your feedback, we have put a switch to take you back to the Adobe Sign manage page. Please let us know if you see any issues accessing the Adobe Sign manage page. We are constantly monitoring these forums and taking a note of the feedback being provided by every customer. We hope to continue improving the user experience for Document Cloud in coming days.

Comment brings together many well-thought-out points, which I'd like to echo in brief:
--No recipient ID'd (for Shared Documents)!
--Mixing document types / status willy-nilly
And may I add:
--More white space that you can shake a stick at. Obviously this design was created to cater to mobile users w/o any consideration for those using a desktop computer.
