The signature option is used in a couple of scenarios
1. We’ll soon provide an option to select if your workflow request needs to be printed with your e-signatures. If this is selected, when a request is printed for archival or compliance, the signature of the approvers would be embedded in the document along with the date and time of approval.
2. We’ve added a document signing feature in cflow that will enable you to initial all pages and sign contracts and other documents. We’ll cover this feature in detail in a separate blog post.
3. You will soon have the ability to use the signature as a field type in your form. This will enable you to use this field and design invoices, bill payments, and other documents with the signature automatically embedded in them.
