Configure your template's widgets

Add widgets to your document so that your signers can fulfill their data and information during the signing process. 

Signaturit offers you 8 widgets:

  • Signature
  • Editable field
  • Textarea
  • Date
  • Checkbox
  • Radio
  • Image
  • Dropdown

This list is accessible to you from the right side of the screen. We'll show you how to use each one of these widgets: 

 

Place a widget:

To start using widgets, click on one of them and drag and drop it wherever you'd like in the document.

You can resize a widget by dragging one of the corners. Check out this animated GIF:

Form fields and widgets:

Signature widget:

The signature widget is the most important of all widgets. This widget is mandatory for at least one of signers involved in the process. 

You just how to drag and drop it as in the GIF showed above. 

 

Editable field

The editable field is the same field calle "Name", "Surname", "Company" or "City".

This field is totally customizable and it works as any form field that you might need. 

Click on the widget once it's placed in the document. The configuration options will be displayed:

  • Name: it allows you to name the widget. The signer will get a contextual help and he/she will know what to input in that field (name, ID number, address, job title, etc). 
  • Default value: it allows you to enter a default value. The signer will see the widget with fulfilled information. The signer will be able to modify it if necessary.
  • Required: A widget can be mandatory or no. Check it if you need the signer to fulfill this information before finishing the whole signing process.

NOTICE: Remember that all fields must be green when signing to successfully finish the signing process. 

The signer will see something like this:

The widget marked in color green has a default value.

The widget marked in color gay has no default value and it's mandatory. The signer has to fulfill this information before completing the process.  

Textarea

Textarea works very similar to "Editable field". In this case, this widget allows you to add line breaks and create long paragraphs. Is used to enter comments, descriptions, etc.  

This widget has the same configuration options as "Editable field":

 

Date

With the date widget, the signer can enter a date (format DD-MM-YYYY) using a calendar. 

Just like in all the previous widgets, you can also name it and enter a default value:

Use the calendar to enter a default value. Click on the month or year to easily navigate through the dates:

NOTICE: The date widget won't be automatically updated every time you send a signature request. We recommend you to set the "Date" widget with no default value and mark it as "Required". In this case the widget won't be missed and the signer will enter the current date. 

 

Checkbox

The checkbox widget permits the signer to make a binary choice: Yes or No. 

With this widget you'll be able to ask for acceptance on your T&Cs, Privacy settings and any other points. 

These are the options for the checkbox:

When clicking on "Default value", the checkbox will be showed to the signer as checked (and green). 

To get a explicit answer from the signer, we suggest you to uncheck the default value and mark it as Required: the signer will be forced to choose between yes or no. 

NOTICE: Setting a checkbox as "Required" means that the signer has to choose one of the two options. The signer won't be forced to ONLY check the positive option. 

This is how a singer will see the checkbox options: 

 

Radio

The radio widget allows the signer to select only one of several options: 

To set up a radio widget, drag and drop a radio wherever you'd like in the document. Once it's placed, click on "Add new radio" (+) to add a new linked radio. 

A new radio will appear and this will be linked to the original one. 

As usual, you can set one radio as default, name it and set it as required.

This is the expected behavior:

Dropdown

The dropdown widget allows you to create a dropdown list. The signer will have to choose one option among that list to continue the process.

Click on "Add another value" to add a new item to that list.

This is how the dropdown list will be showed to the signer:

Image

The image widget allows you to ask the signer for an image file. In this case, the uploaded image will be stamped in the PDF document. 

This is useful to add the image of signature stamp or the photo of a person. 

You can always set up a default image:
