    I realised that I can create a consent form, ask for the user sign it and generate a pdf completely different with user signature.

    Am are right? Is there some way to avoid it?

    Hello P3LifeTrials,

    To clarify, you want to create a consent form by adding a signature and convert it into a PDF Form. To do that please follow the steps below:

    1) Go to your Form Builder and click on the Add Form Elements tab.

    2) Navigate to Widgets and search for Terms & Conditions.

    3) Add your form field by clicking on it.

    Hi Fernand,

    thank you for your answer, but my point is that, using the pdf editor, I can generate a pdf completely different from the form. I mean, You can enter your signature in a form that says "I agree the Jotform is great" and I can get your signature and generate a pdf that  say "I will give $1.000.000 to P3Life".

    Any idea about how to give more confidence to the process?

    Sorry, but the PDF Editor will not work that way. If you are generating a PDF document containing your form data/submission, it will show the form fields along with the set up labels only. You will not be able to edit the PDF document to show different titles for the questions/fields.

    Else, if you want to show it separately, you can create a PDF form:  

    Do review and let us know if you have any further questions.

    I have tested a submission with your form and this is the PDF document I received attached in the email.


    It is the correct signature I have used to submit the form.

    Can you please share more information regarding how you would like your PDF document to be shown ?

    Looking forward for your response.
