| supports Digital Signatures. Authenticated users can digitally sign a section, lock it down and prevent tampering with the data. Versions, previous to 5.1, allowed the form designer to put a section in a form that could be signed using a text rendering of the user's name (user credentials) or a previously uploaded signature image. The user must be be authenticated to the Server. Wet signature capture is now available in Version 5.1. A wet signature is a signature that is entered or created at the time of form entry. Wet Signatures make it possible for the user to enter the signature using either a track pad/mouse, stylus or a touch screen in use mode. This feature becomes very important when designing for Mobile devices. Refer to the PageBreak control for more information on mobile forms.|
Both authenticated and non-authenticated users may sign a form using a wet signature. If authentication is required, Signed Sections should be used.
No special hardware is required. All you need is a smartphone or a computer with a browser that supports HTML5. View this video about Electronic Signatures feature.
Signatures can be added to any form using one of the methods listed:
The signature control only captures a handwritten signature image. It does not create a digital signature. A signed section that is set to wet signature both captures a handwritten signature image and creates a digital signature over the contents of the section. See below.
