How to Require a Signature in Jotform Approvals

Last Update: 

Aside from the usual allow or deny options available in the Approval element, the Approve & Sign element can also accept a signature as an additional requirement for the approvers.

Setting Up the Approve & Sign Element

Here’s how to require the approver’s signature in Jotform Approvals:

  1. Add an Approve & Sign element to your approval flow.
  1. Click the element’s gear icon to open its properties panel.
  2. Choose the options where you require the signatures for.
  1. Scroll down to the Signer Email Address section and enter the approver’s email.

You can also click Form Fields in the Signer Email Address section and select one of your form’s Email elements as the approver’s email.


That’s about it for the basic Approve & Sign setup. The rest of the options are the same with the Approval element. To learn more, see Approval Element.

With this setup, depending on your settings, the approvers are required to provide their signature when they approve or deny an entry from the email or Inbox.
