    How can I add an electronic signature to my form?

    Asked by kalmarrin on February 06, 2012 at 12:01 PM

    I have a medical release form that I need an electronic signature box on. I don't see anything that will do that. Can you tell me how I can do this? I'm still designing this, and that's all I need...

    Thanks,

    Pam

    Pam,

    We currently do not have an option to allow a digital or electronic signature in forms.

    This is the workaround I've been suggesting to users asking this same question:

    It's nothing fancy, just a simple text box. You can set this field as required so that no submission can be made without signing the form.

    For now, this is the only solution we have.

    OK, that's fine. Is that just the 'name' box then?

    Also - I am creating a website in Xara.do I use the placeholder feature and
    an iframe code from your site?

    Thanks for your quick response.

    You can either use the Full Name quick tool or an ordinary text box.

    By the way, we strongly advise against posting multiple unrelated questions in a single thread. You must open separate thread for new questions. This is to provide better and more efficient support experience to our users.

    Thank you for understanding :)

    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.
