    When we initially discovered Jotform we were only considering integrating a form with a "File Upload" button to allow clients to print out our application, sign-in, scan it, and attach it to the form to return to us.  However, we discovered an "E-Signature" tool that is actually able to capture the signature of the form inquirer should they choose to use it.  Needless to say, we were quite impressed - not just with the e-signature tool but with Jotform in general.  We were wondering could this be used for contracts, application agreements, etc...?  I'm asking from both a technical and legal standpoint.  In other words, if I have a 5 page Application Agreement that I would like to somehow integrate into JotForm is it technically feasible, and if so, can you point me to some videos/tutorials on how something like that might be accomplished?  Would I just treat it like I would any other form and simply paste in all the text to Jotform?  Also, would such a form submission still be considered legally viable?

    The E-Signature tool can be used to sign contracts and agreement forms. The tool allows the end-user to sign and submit typically any form that would require a signature without having to print the form and then manually signing it. For more information on the E-Signature tool please review this link.

    This link provides instructions on how to add a term of use/ agreement to your form. If after reviewing the links that I provided you still have further questions please let us know. 

    I hope this helps! Thanks
