The wet signature field in Smartabase allows users to add their signature to a form. You can add a wet signature field to an event, profile, database or related entity form.
People can enter their signature in this field using their mouse, trackpad, stylus or touchscreen. If someone makes a mistake in the signature field, they can clear the contents and redo their signature. Once they save the form, the signature field is locked and cannot be edited.
Depending on the purpose of the form, you can set the signature field as a required field. In this case, if the user does not enter their signature, they cannot save the form.
In the example below, a referral form was created for doctors to refer their injured athletes to a specialist. The doctor adds their information and signs the referral at the end of the form using the signature field.
The signature field could also be used to confirm that the athlete's referral to another medical professional is deliberate and authorized by the treating practitioner, as in the example below.
