    Hello, 

    I want to create a form that is partially completed and is sent to a responder to complete with an esignature. I do not want the responder to be able to update anything other than the esignature.


    Is this possible?


    Thank you,

    In that scenario, the best way to go is to prefill the fields with data you need, you can use default value:

    And set the field as read-only:

    So your users would see the filled data but they won't be able to change it.

    Hope it helps.

    Thank you!

    Hi, 


    I want the form to be ~90% completed by a colleague and then sent to a customer to eSign. Does that make my request more clear?


    Thank you,

    Your request was clear initially.

    The way I described earlier is the best way to go and be sure that your users will not be able to change the data.

    So your colleague would have to set default values for each field and make them read-only.

    Then you would just share the link of your form for your users to fill it and sign.

    Another way would be to create a prepopulate URL: https://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-Fields-to-Your-JotForm-via-URL-Parameters

    Where you can create a custom URL with all the data you want to prefill in the form. You will have to make the fields read-only as well.

    Then you will share the custom URL to users that have to sign and submit.

    But in this case, users will be able to change the parameters in URL (since they have access to URL in their browser) and therefore change the values in fields.

    Thank you!
