Create an assessment signature

A signature on an assessment questionnaire contains assertions that can communicate directions, a legal statement, or any text that you want the recipient to consider.

Before you begin

Role required: assessment_admin or admin

About this task

You can require the recipient to select a check box or provide a full signature to acknowledge acceptance of the assertion before submitting the form. You can display assertions without requiring a signature. An assessment property called Require authentication for user signature allows you to require users to provide their user name and password when an assessment asks for a full name signature.


  1. Navigate to Assessments > Metric Definition > Signatures.

    All signatures in the system appear in this list.

  2. Click New.
