    PDF eSig option

    Asked by qsource on November 19, 2014 at 01:33 PM

    I've created a form with an option to have a PDF created at the end that we can submit to a client. However, the PDF needs to allow for an eSig capability. We need our clients to provide us with a signed Job Starter to begin work. We can do this now in our current PDF format, but using it via JotForm I don't see it as an option.

    Hi gsource,

    We have various widgets that will allow you to ask your users for their signature. You can see a list of the widgets that we have available here: Signature Widgets

    The most popular widget we have for esignatures is: Smooth Signature. How to add a widget to your form.

    Here is a cloned version of your form with the widget added. It was added to the first page but can be moved to the desired location. This field will be included in the PDF.

    Please inform us if you need further assistance.
