Enable electronic signature for approval

This topic explains how to enabling electronic signatures for approval. Electronic signatures are helpful if you must obtain a digital signature for compliance or auditing purposes.

About this task

You can activate the Approval with e-signature to require that users type in a user name and password when reviewing and approving documents.

The digital signature is not tracked or stored in the document record. Users must simply type in a user name and password after clicking the Approve or Reject button.
