How to add an eSign widget to a JotForm

By Lisa Croft – May 27, 2015

JotForm has released a new eSign widget linking their online forms to Adobe Document Cloud with eSign services. This integration creates a seamless e-signing experience for any type of form from business agreements to loan applications.

What is an eSign widget?

Widgets allow you to embed the Document Cloud e-signing experience directly into a form or document. Each signer completes the form separately and each transaction is recorded individually. You’ll need an Acrobat DC subscription or an Adobe Document Cloud with eSign services (formerly EchoSign) account to embed the widget in a form created in JotForm.

How do I add the widget to my form?

  • Build your form as usual in JotForm.
  • Drag and drop the Adobe Document Cloud eSign widget onto your form.
  • Authorize JotForm to integrate with your Adobe Document Cloud account.
  • Embed the form on a web page or send out a link to the form via email.

What is the end-user signing experience like?

The end user fills out the form and selects the Adobe eSign button. Next, a completed copy of the form is generated and automatically opened in Adobe Document Cloud. The end user is prompted to securely sign the form within Adobe Document Cloud and copies are forwarded to each party.
