How to Add an E-Signature to Your Form

November 7, 2022

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 Form Builder.

Jotform Sign is a new way to collect signatures and create legally binding documentation with just a few clicks. Any document you create in Jotform Sign is UETA and ESIGN compliant and will be part of a workflow so you can easily track and automate the signing process.
Go to My Sign Documents to get started today.

Adding an E-Signature to Your Form

E-signatures can be used on consentcontract, application, registration, or online petition forms, as well as forms that require terms of service agreements and many more.

Here’s how to add one to your form:

  1. Click on Add Form Element in the top-left corner of Form Builder.
  1. Search for Signature and add it to your form.

Clicking on the 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 — go to the Widgets tab, search for “signature,” and choose the widget you want to use from the results.


Here’s a list of the most commonly used e-signature widgets:
