When an administrator adds the Signature component to a form, this allows the responder to insert a signature. A drawing board will open up in the app allowing the signature to be added using a touchscreen.
The signature is then saved as an image as part of the response.

You also have the facility to “lock previous components” via the signature. This is to ensure your data is not tampered with after the approval signature has been added.
This can be utilised in many scenarios including:
Work completed - Sign off approved by the client - ensuring that no changes can be made to the content after the client.
Accident reports - Signed off by a witness or investigator
Health & Safety reports - Signed by a supervisor or manager
Remember you can also use the multiple signatures model when you need multiple stakeholders to sign one after another.
