    Hi MissyCollins,

    Can you please provide with more details of the problem? Is it right, You want to add electronic signature to the form? I think one of the best suggestion will be to add an upload image button to the form design.

    Unfortunately, e-Signature is not yet available in Jotform. For the meantime, you can add text box field to let users to enter their name as signature or do the above suggestion by webmasterphi, add the image field and ask your user to upload their scan signature.
