How to Add an E-Signature to Your Form

Last Update: 

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.

Jotform Sign is a new way to collect signatures and create documents 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 consent, contract, 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. In the Form Builder, click on Add Form Element in the upper-left corner.
  1. Search for Signature on the left and add it to your form.

Your form is now ready to accept signatures.
