If you're not using a tablet or smartphone, it can be difficult and clumsy to draw a signature with a mouse or trackpad. Fortunately, S-Sign provides the option forgo any drawing at all with the Adopt a Signature feature. This feature allows you to sign a document by typing your name and replacing it with a cursive font.
Adopt a Signature works on S-Sign version 1.973 and above, so make sure you have the latest version installed before testing it out. You can check the version number by navigating to the Setup menu, typing "Installed" into the Quick Find / Search bar, and clicking Installed Packages.
If you don't have the latest version, reach out to a member of our sales team at firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain an installation link.
Adopt a Signature is easy to use and requires no configuration on your part. When a user receives an S-Sign request and clicks Click Here to Sign, the signature capture window will open and there will be an Adopt a Signature checkbox right below the box where they'd normally draw their signature.
When they check this box, they can type in their name and choose a font to use by clicking inside the Choose a Signature box.
When the user clicks Add Signature, their adopted signature will be merged into the document.
They can then fill in any other necessary fields and submit the document.
That's all there is to it! Adopt a Signature is an easy-to-use alternative to drawing a signature designed to save your users time and provide more value to you.
