    iPad Form: Signatures

    Asked by choreo on October 15, 2013 at 12:27 AM

    I have been using JotForm for a few websites, but I got a new request today and am looking for some advice.

    I have a client that asked if I could create an "APP" for an iPad (but I am not sure this actually needs an "app" - whatever that means). This is a small ranch that wants to have an iPad that they provide at the front desk for visitors to sign-in, by filling out some personal information fields, then "sign" the form onscreen with their signature (like SQUARE Payment Systems), then a SUBMIT button to send the data to an email address.

    Not sure why they want the ability to scribble a signature on the screen with their finger as there is no way I can think of to prove who actually signed it?

    Anyone done anything similar to this before?

    You are able to use the E-Signature field as an option for your client to evaluate.
