    Hi,

    There is an e-signature field available in our form. You may want to check them out in the JotForm Widgets page.

    I think the Smooth Signature is the one you need in particular.

    You should also check the article about e-signatures here

    https://www.jotform.com/blog/70-Announcing-E-Signatures-for-Forms

     

    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Sorry for not understanding immediately the requirement to pop-up the e-signature box.

    Yes, you can also achieve this on the form and in mobile browsers. Although I have to tell you ahead that it will need a bit of work.

    I was thinking previously why there is a need for the pop-up when we can just use the phone's zooming screen capability to enlarge the form screen e-signature.

    But just the same, I suggest you check this thread also.

    http://www.jotform.com/answers/335512-Can-I-have-a-form-auto-pop-up-on-website

    They have discussed on that thread how to make the embedded form pop-up even on mobile browsers.

    I hope this help. Inform us f you need further assistance accomplishing this.

    Thanks.

    You cannot put the e-signature field on a separate link. It must always be within the form.

    So if you need a clickable link that will open the e-signature canvas, then the clickable link that is being clicked on is the URL link of the form.

    Example, try the link on this test page https://shots.jotform.com/jonathan/webtest/e-signature-on-pop-up-lightbox-form-419070.html

    To achieve what you need that have only the e-signature canvas popping out after clicking on a link, there is a need to use the form's source code embed to be able to a script that will make the e-signature element pop-up individually from the form.

    User Guide https://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form

    Can you please share to us also the URL of the website where we can check and test your embedded form. Perhaps we can find more appropriate suggestion once we know the target website page.

    Thanks.

    The 'full screen' mode is not available on JotForm E-Signature and Smooth Signature widgets at the moment. I have attached a feature request ticket to this thread and escalated it to our Development Team. There is no ETA for when it will be implemented, but we will let you know if we have any updates.

    Note, that you can get something similar with a DocuSign widget integration on form. Although, this is a separate service, and it is not free.
