A Signature widget allows the collection of a signature using the touch-screen. Signatures are saved as raster images (JPEG). Note that signature questions will be ignored on non-touch screen devices, however, each submitted form is stamped with the Mobile Device number “system field”. Depending on your specific need, this stamp may serve as “digital signature”.
When displayed on the mobile device, the Signature question widget will look similar to the following:
Adding the Signature widget is as simple as using a “drag and drop” motion to place on the form canvas.
The Signature question widget includes the following special properties that you can use to control the look and behavior of Signature:
Caption text - Refers to the question caption as presented to the user. Think of this as the title for the question; it should be self-descriptive. We recommend no more than three words for optimal display on mobile devices.
Hint - Additional help for the question will be displayed; short clear sentences work best. Use 80 characters or less for optimal display on mobile devices. The maximum number of characters is 500, including spaces. The following HTML formatting tags are currently recognized:
Android: <br>, <i>, <b>, <u>, <font color="xxx">, <H1>, <H2>, <H3>, <H4>, <H5>, <P>, <a>, <div>;
PDF reports: <br>, <font color="xxx">.
Data name - Represents the name of the data that will be displayed in column headings. This property is automatically filled in based on the Caption Text, but may be modified in the properties area. We recommend one or two word data names to keep column headings short. The maximum number of characters is 30. Spaces are not permitted in the Data Name field.
Read only - Determines whether or not this field can be edited. This is used in combination with a Default Value.
Required - Determines whether or not this field must be filled-in before continuing to the next question. On the mobile device, a form with an empty required field may be saved as “incomplete” but not as “complete” and hence cannot be sent to your website.
Advanced - Clicking on the Advanced arrow will reveal “Relevance conditions” and “Skip conditions” properties that can be used of further control the behavior of your form using sophisticated logical statements. Please refer to http://support.doforms.com/hc/en-us/articles/200446034-Using-Relevance-Skip-Logic for more information on these properties.
