| supports two types of Digital Signatures. No special hardware is required. All you need is a smartphone or a computer with a browser that supports HTML5. |
- Signed Sections - Users authenticated to the server, or in some cases by email, can digitally sign a section in a form/workflow, lock it down and prevent tampering with the data. A signed section creates a digital signature over the contents of the section, and if set to Wet Signature type, also captures a handwritten signature image. If legally binding signatures and/or authentication are required, Signed Sections should be used.
- Signature Control- also offers a Signature control that allows any user, including anonymous users, to sign electronically using either a track pad/mouse, stylus or a touch screen in use mode. Both authenticated and non-authenticated users may sign a form using a Signature control from the palette. The signature control only captures a handwritten signature image. It does not create a digital signature.
When designing a form with an a Signature control, the captured signature is attached to the form submission as a PNG image attachment. This PNG image is included in your form data and will be sent in any Document Actions that handle form data. For example, should you choose to post the data to your web application, then the signature PNG is part of that posted data. Should you choose to email the data, the signature PNG will be attached to the email. The captured signature PNG is available for downloading by browsing your submissions within . See Submissions Stored Inside of frevvo for the details.
