How to add a signature in Microsoft Forms

To request a signature on a Microsoft form, your best bet is to use Microsoft Power Automate to generate an approval workflow requesting sign off on the entire form. To ensure the signature is secure, you’ll need to connect your workflow to one of the document-signing integrations available through Power Automate, like DocuSign or Adobe Sign. (Keep in mind you’ll need licensing for whichever product you choose to use.)

The good news is that most of the connectors Power Automate offers have different approval templates you can work from, so you won’t necessarily have to build your approval workflow from scratch. With this Adobe Sign workflow template, for example, you can send your Microsoft Forms through approval and signing processes in one workflow.
