  1. Hide empty fields

    Not all of my Gravity Form fields are mandatory. Some are conditional fields, and some are optional values.

    It would be great if the "insert field" shortcode could include a "Title" and an option to "Hide if empty".

    [esiggravity formid="3" field_id="11" title="Other" hideEmpty="true" ]
    could produce
    <label for="fieldName123">Your title here</label><span id="fieldName123" class="hideEmpty underline"></span>

    Then, a fairly simple jQuery statement could hide all hideEmpty fields whose text value is empty.

    • Signer "Initials" Acknowledgement Input Field

      In addition to a final signature, many contracts require the signer to acknowledge certain portions of a contract as well as entire pages by adding their initials in one or more locations through out the contract. For example, Real Estate offers have many initial locations. E-Signature needs this capability. Need a signer "Initials" input field capability.

      Include the Initials in the signature selection dialog when beginning to sign a new document.

        hey guys… this Kevin the founder chiming in. I can definitely see the value in having this feature. And agree it is a very pivotal one.

        ApproveMe has been quietly working on adding this feature… however, it will likely be introduced in our first front-end PDF upload roll out which is still a couple months away.

        I apologize for the delay but we have devoted 100% of our (NEW) development resources to building out this plugin into a Wordpress powered application which will be MUCH MORE powerful and customizable than just your “old wordpress” plugin.

        Because of this… it’s taken a little longer to add these smaller features… but I assure you the new version will not disappoint :-) Thanks for the great feedback.

      • Have an option to insert All fields from Gravity Forms instead of one at a time.

        Right now the only way to put your Gravity Form data on a eSignature document is to add individual fields one at a time. It would be a nice feature to add ALL fields at once from a Gravity Form.

          • Input Field Shortcodes

            There is no way, through a shortcode, or filter to give a field a value prior to sending for signature.

            e.g. text inputs are rendered with

            return $this->text_to_html($label, $name, '', $required, false, $verifysigner, $size,$displaytype);

            With the third parameter the value.

            This needs to be either
            a shortcode attribute; or
            a filterable value

            Ideally, both for ease in shortcodes and dynamism with a filter.

            • Dropbox Sync Folder Selection and Make it A Sharable Folder

              Currently you can not share the default Dropbox folder used to Sync to (because it is already a shared folder) which is limiting.

              Make the default Dropbox folder the files are synced to sharable.

              Currently you can not share the Apps folder or sub-folder where they are saved.

              It would also be helpful to be able to select an existing Dropbox folder where you want the files synced to.

              • Document Styles

                As it currently stands we're very limited in how we can style our Documents.

                In order to add extra spacing we have to hit return multiple times, which in turn, generates a bunch of blank <p></p> tags. This is not great.

                We also have no way to adjust the styles (size/color/padding etc.) of any of the default h1 - h6 tags. For example, I'm using h2 tags in my Document and come to find out those tags are way to big in comparison to the Document Title; which btw is using <p class="doc_title" instead of a more appropriate h1 tag.…

                  I agree with you guys 100%. We actually have already started rolling out a 3 phase project that will eventually introduce more document styliing options when creating a document using the plain text method.

                  We’re currently on the first phase (which is PDF upload Drag & Drop) once this is released and ready we’ll be adding some serious improvements to the plain text document creation process.

                  Thanks for the great feedback!

                  Kind Regards,

                • Add Stand Alone Clone Feature

                  Support just advised you can copy the code from a stand alone document to create another one and then modify the agreement etc., but keep the same custom fields.

                  It would be great to be able to easily select a chosen stand alone document and click "Clone"

                  • When my document is signed I should receive a notification. I have checked the box to do so - and it is necessary to the workflow.

                    When my document is signed I should receive a notification. I have checked the box to do so - and it is necessary to the workflow.

                    However -

                    My client (who just signed) receives the notification and I do not.

                    Can this be fixed?

                      Our current system/platform recognizes the person that originally sets up a document as the document owner (as the email associated with the document). Therefore they will be the one receiving the emails etc. We do plan on simplifying this process in the future so you can more easily transfer document authorship/ownership; but for now…

                      You have two options:

                      Option 1 = Changing the email address and profile of the user that created the document in the first place (this info is logged in the audit trail of a signed stand alone document)

                      Option 2 = Copying the contents of the Stand Alone Document. Logging in as the desired user that should be attributed as the document owner. Creating a new stand alone document. Pasting those contents. And publishing your changes.

                    • Re-modification of document after signature

                      I need a way to modify the doc after it is filled out. Currently, I'm having my clients fill out the document then they sign it. But when they fill it our wrong or decide to make a change to the contract later, I have to re-do everything instead of just making a minor change. Changes to contracts happen al the time and this feature would really be helpful for us.

                      • Less "chrome" at the top and bottom of the signing window.

                        I'm placing my document in a modal window and the black bars at the top and bottom of the approveme interface take up 2/3 of the space of the modal window. The document itself only has like an inch of visibility. An option I'd like to see is a "minimal" option where the black bars are shorter.

                          • Styling

                            Some simple styling options would be fantastic. For example, the ability for a user to assign a class or id to a created field would be great. My form I needed to create is large and complicated with LOTS of input fields. In order for it to look even remotely structured I had to add a lot of html into the page manually and then add CSS into the plugins asset files.

                            Pretty complicated for just wanting my form layout to look nice.

                                Hi Brian… I apologize for the delay and understand that the speed of our support not only affect you but they also affect yur customers and for that I apologize. The team just released a major update today after 3 months of development. So the last couple weeks they were a little slower than usual in their response times…. while we don’t typically offer phone support (mainly becuase we want to keep the cost of the plugin down so it continue to be as affordable as possible for freelancers and small business owners) I have occasionally been known to jump on the phone with a customer or two here and there… if you want please shoot me an email at kevin@approveme.me and I’d love to discuss your challenges and see if we can help you solve them. Thanks so much for being our customer!

                                Some our documents we would use Wp e-signature for are signed in person at our office and not over email. We use Topaz brand signature pads and would like to see support for this with WP e-signature, similar to what is available with Docusign.

                                  • Email to Signer Option

                                    I am using the plugin in conjunction with Ninja Forms to allow members of my website to create documents by filling out forms on the front-end.

                                    I would love for there to be an "Email to Signer" option on the document page - because I would like to allow the User to both View the Document immediately (in the case that the signer is in front of them and able to sign immediately) and be able to Email to the Signer immediately instead of having to wait for the email reminders to kick in.

                                    • Date and Currency Formats

                                      The current date format (yyyy/mm/dd) would look better as mm/dd/yyyy. Also, if currency had the comma separation (1,500,000 instead of 1500000) it would be easier to read.

                                          Thanks for using our app!

                                          We haven’t added Front-end dashboard into WP E-Signature yet. But I think that’s an awesome idea! In fact, we loved the idea so much we began working on it about 6 months ago. I don’t have an ETA from the team behind it yet but from their last update, I’d say we’re close to launching it. We hope to make more announcements about this in the coming months.

                                          Kind Regards,

                                          Kevin at ApproveMe

                                        • HTTP request after signature

                                          I'd like to be able to create an HTTP request automatically when a document is signed.

                                          I'm using a stand-alone form to collect liability waivers from my students. I'd love to be able to update the student's record in my CRM with the date that they signed. (For new students, I need to be able to know how has/hasn't signed. And when I update the waiver, I need to know who has/hasn't signed the new version.)

                                          To do that, I need to be able to pass at least their email address and the date they signed via an HTTP request.…
