Jotform first introduced the E-signature widget back in 2013. It allows your respondents to sign the form right before submission. After that, we added a variety of e-signature widgets and Signature became one of the basic elements in the Form Builder.
Adding an E-Signature to Your Form
Electronic signatures can be used on consent, contract, application, registration, or online petition forms, as well as forms that require terms of service agreements and many more.
To add an e-signature to your form
- In the Form Builder, select Add Form Element in the upper-left corner.
- In the left pane, select Signature to add it to your form.
Your form is now ready to accept signatures.
- Selecting the Signature element’s pen icon brings you to Jotform Sign where you can enable sign automation.
- If you want to use one of the e-signature widgets instead — in the Form Elements pane on the left, select Widgets at the top, search for “signature,” then choose the widget you want to use from the results. To learn more, see Adding a Widget to Your Form.
Here’s a list of the most commonly used e-signature widgets:
