    We use JotForms for all the in-bound inquiries from our website (donations, foster/adopt applications, volunteer waivers), but now I would like to migrate our Adoption Contract over as well.

    The challenge, as I see it, is that I (as secretary of the organization) have to input specific information before I send the contract to the recipient for signature.  So, I guess I am asking is this a good use for Jotform or should I simply find another way to incorporate digital signing?

    Thanks for your input.  ciao. YSB

    If you mean you would like to pre-populate some fields of the form then send it to the user to ask for their signature, I think a workaround is by using this method on Prepopulating-Fields-to-Your-JotForm-via-URL-Parameters. You can use this app: https://prepopulate.jotform.io/ 

    It lets you encode the data into the form, generate a URL, then share that URL to your users via email.

    Now, when the user accessed that link, they shall see the fields pre-populated with the data and all they need to do is to sign it.

    Here's an example: https://bit.ly/2U3IKfY 

    Please try that and let us know if you need further assistance.
