Signature Pad

Signature pad is a feature that any application can use. It captures an electronic signature that can be associated with a document or a task.

The HR Service Delivery application uses signature pad with onboarding documents like offer letters, background check approval, company policy acknowledgements, and more.

The Human Resources Scoped App: Core [com.sn_hr_core] plugin activates the Signature Pad [com.snc.signaturepad] plugin. The Signature Image [signature_image] table installs with this plugin.

Ensure Yes is checked in the com.snc.signaturepad.retrieveSignature field on HR properties. See HR Properties.

Use
You can send your employees documents that require a user verification such as a digital signature or by typing their name.
When signature pad is associated with a document or a task, it captures the drawn signature as an image and stores it in the Signature Image [signature_image] table.
Note: Typing a signature provides acknowledgement, but does not capture an image that is stored.
For HR document templates, use the Insert Signature button to insert a variable that prompts a user to sign the document. For HR PDF document templates, use the Employee Signature field name and PDF Template Mappings to prompt a user to sign the document. See HR Document Templates.
Note: Check the generate document UI action condition to ensure this feature works correctly.
