Can I add a signature field on a form?

    Hi, I am looking to add a signature field in a few of my forms.   I do not have the budget to use one of the Quickbase providers to create this field/feature.   Does a QuickBase user have the ability to create this type of field?   If so, how does it work?  Thanks!

    It would be possible to have Signatures stored in QuickBase as a jpg image.  Then you could control who could push a button and then that signature would be displayed on the record as to who "signed it:".  But the user would be pushing a button, not actually "signing" the screen with their finger.

    Thank you for your reply.  Is there a way to have this form sent to people outside my company to sign and return with an electronic signature?

    Do you mean like actual signature capture without using any 3rd party add ons?  if so, there is not a way to do that using native QuickBase.

    Thank you for you help!  I think your initial response would work very well for another project I am working on.  If possible can you let me know some of the steps I have to take to add this feature?  I am guessing I have store the JPEGs where I store my other files (logos, etc) then how do I create the button to show the options for the signatures...I may have five to ten that are needed.  Can the button be passcode protected to prevent others from using it?

    You should be able to get this working with a lookup field to that table of images.  This would be a formula text field with html enabled.

    "<img src=" & URLRoot() & "up/" & [_DBID_Table where the images are stored]  & "/a/r" & [Related Image] & "/e22/v0" & " height=\"100\">"


    Replace the 22 with the fid of the file attachment field where the signature image is stored.  I have not tested that formula for syntax, so ket me know of there is a problem.

    As for security, lets get the image working and then we will figure out security access.
