    You can achieve your requirement by adding an admin code field to your form and using Show/Hide conditions to show the signature field if the admin code is correct. Please follow the steps below:

    1. Add the admin code textbox field and set it to hidden so it can't be seen by the user.

    2. Setup a Show/Hide condition that will show the signature field if the code is correct. You can follow our guide here for more info: How to Show or Hide Fields Base on User's Answer

    3. After saving the condition, you're all set. To see the admin code, you will need to click the Edit Submission link from the Email Notification that you received. Otherwise, you will not see the admin code field.

    4. From the page opened using the edit link, simply enter the admin code to see and sign the signature field.

    Here's a demo form so you can clone it to your account and see how it was setup: https://form.jotform.com/62568523757972 
    The admin code for that form is 1234.

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.
