    Does Jotform provide the witnessing signature functionality?

    Asked by mustardseed on October 14, 2016 at 07:13 AM

    Hello Jotform team,

     

    Some of our legal documents require the signature by a 'witness' confirming that the person signing the main contract was seen making the signature. Does Jotform provide this functionality and if so where can I find it?

     

    Thank you! I look forward to hearing back from you soon. 

     

    Regards,

    Hello Candy, 

    Thank you very much. This is helpful albeit I was actually looking for a witnessing signature functionality, i.e. a functionality that would allow us to collect a witness' signature alongside the signature of the person who is contracting with us. Do you know if Jotfrom offers that functionality? 

    Have a good day.

    Best,

    Lavinia

    Hi,

    I was actually looking for a witnessing signature functionality, i.e. a functionality that would allow us to collect a witness' signature alongside the signature of the person who is contracting with us

    Can you please provide more clarity how the witnessing signature functionality works? 

    You can also use 2 signature on the form.. I assume 1 for the witness and 1 for the one signing a contract. Are you not able to do this?

    Just to let you know as well, our E-signature feature is also legally binding. So you can actually use it on legal purposes.

    We'll wait for your response.

    Thanks.
