Table of Contents

Overview

The "Signature" field type enables the user to place his signature in a form. This field type allows instant validation from a customer through his digital signature, eliminating the need of paper work. Signature field type can be useful in applications such as "Delivery confirmation", where a customer acknowledges the delivery by signing the form. To sign a form using the signature field, one needs to double-tap(on a touchpad) or click(in case of a mouse) and execute the sign.
