    What is the best way to incorporate a "signature", or something like that, into a form?

    I want to have a form-filler "sign on the dotted line" that the data they put in a form is theirs. 

    What do you think?


    Thank you,

    Hi Rick,

    Unfortunately, this feature is currently not available with JotForm. However, it has already been added to our feature request list. But we still cannot provide specific timeframe on when will this be available due to the fact that our developers are working for a long list of new requests every day. We appreciate your understanding for this matter.

    For the mean time, the best thing I would suggest is for you to create a textarea in your form that asks for your customer's electronic signature. Or you can create a required checkbox that says "I accept the terms" and a small textbox where they are asked to enter their initials. Another possible solution is to add a "Print Form" button to your form and then ask them to print, sign and fax the filled form. You can enable print form button by clicking on the Submit button and then selecting "Print Button" at the toolbar. Hope this helps.

     Also, I've noticed that you're using a guest account. It is best you upgrade to a free/basic account to prevent loss of data in the future.

    Thank you for your patience.

    If you have further issues and concerns, please feel free to contact us again.

    UPDATE: We have just released e-signature capturing for forms.


    You can now add an e-signature question to your form and get your users to sign the forms they complete.
