    Is it possible for recipients to sign their notification email and submit it back to me?

    Asked by jonbest86 on November 29, 2016 at 03:45 AM

    I am filling in the form over the phone on behalf of the customer and do not want to read our terms and conditions to them as this would take some time.
    Instead I'd like the option of them signing their notification email to accept their terms and conditions.

    Is this possible?

    Kind regards,

    I'm afraid it would not be possible for a user to sign the notification email, but what you can do instead is to use one of these alternatives.

    1. You can use our form prepopulation feature to populate your form with the entries your user provides over the phone:



    Then, once the form is populated with all the details you wanted, simply send the URL of your form with the prepopulated entries to your user, and they can then check the terms and conditions box and submit the form back to you by clicking on the Submit button.

    2. Another method would be something similar, but less secure for you. This would be that you make an actual form submission with your user's details filled out, and then include an Edit Submission link in the autoresponder for your users to edit the submission and check the terms and conditions box:


    As with this second method, your users could also use that same Edit Submission link later on to further edit their submission, I would recommend using the prepopulation method mentioned above instead.

    Please try it out, and let us know whether this will work to your satisfaction.
