Intro

The signature capture allows users to input their signature by signing on the screen. The signature is captured and saved in the backend with a watermark.

Usage

Signature Capture is intended for users to authorize workflows when they sign while using this feature. Some use cases include signing forms or documents, approving an order, confirming a task, indicating reception of an article, signing off for another person, etc. 

After users generate an autograph, they have the option to save the signature as a bitmap or SVG watermark which can be saved with the final signature, or it will be stored in the backend.

Consider using in-line signature form cell for any forms that require careful inspection of the content during the signing process.

Anatomy

A. Navigation Bar of Signature Capture

The navigation bar contains primary actions for the signature capture modal. There are 2 buttons: Cancel and Done. By default, the title is “Signature” but it can be customized to fit with the context.

B. Signature Canvas

The canvas is a signature capture view that allows the user to draw a signature on it. In this view, there is a signature line to guide the user of where to draw.

C. Toolbar of Signature Capture

By default, the toolbar contains a clear button for the user to remove all previous drawings on the canvas.

 

D. Watermark (optional)

Watermarks are optional texts that are added automatically by the system to the saved signature image.
