    I would like to make a user agreement form on pdf file with a box that users can sign digitally.

    I tried to use the signature widget but it does not really meet my requirements. I want them to sign on the pdf so I can save the file with their signature.

    Do you have any instructions for achieving this?

    Thank you so muhc.

    Unfortunately when the jot-form signature widget is exported to a PDF file it loses the ability to behave as a signature field and instead its converted to a textbox.

    The E-Signature widget not the Smooth signature widget is the one that is converted to a textbox.

    You can achieve this by creating the form normally and add the signature widget,when the user submits the form a copy of the form PDF file with the form data is included in the notification email.

    Add the agreement text

    Next modify the notifications email to contain a link to the PDF after the user submits it.



    When the user submits the data, you will receive a pdf download link of the same data along with the signature captured and converted to an image.

    Here's a copy of the form you can clone and modify:

    You can also access the submitted forms under the submission section of your form. Hope this addresses your inquiry.
