    Do you have an electronic signature option?

    Also, if the user can sign the form electronically, like PDF foms, as currently there is only the option to sign by mouse.

    I'm not sure what kind of e-signature you need since most of them requires either a mouse (for desktops/laptops), or a stylus/finger for touch-screen devices.

    We offer a variety of signature widgets and you can find them all by using "signature" as your search keyword on our Widgets Galleryhttps://widgets.jotform.com/search/signature

    1. Smooth Signature


    2. E-Signature


    3. Docusign


    4. Adobe e-Sign


    The 4 above are the most commonly used by many. And in case you have a followup question about its validity, I recommend you read the article I'm linking below. Here's a snippet:

    Legally Binding

    E-signatures are legally binding on almost all countries and states, but we still recommend consulting with your lawyer.

    JotForm records the IP address and time of the signature made so that also provides additional confirmation about the signer of the document.
