How can we improve WP E-Signature?

How can someone sign PDF documents

Hi,
I already have PDF documents created by a different software, I need end user to sign the pdf documents in the signature area that is already in the pdf document. Is there any way I can ask end user sign to that specific pdf document in the specific area. All softwares such sa docusign, esignlive and others allow pdf documents to be signed in the signature field.

    We have indeed been working on 2.0 for a while. We were initially planning on releasing it 100% as a fully WordPress ran application… and got very very close to doing so; however, similar to the PCI compliance industry (i.e. the industry that regulates accepting credit cards online) there’s been an uprising of laws and regulations in the document signing industry.

    So while we are very close to having 2.0 release ready we’re in the process of having to re-architect the API and set it up to run a portion of the application in our cloud while still maintaining the overall customer experience so everything still feels seamless and like it’s all taking place on YOUR site. As such there’s still some backend changes that we are quickly working to mitigate.

    The good news is the team is continuing to develop the final screens that remained however, it will realistically take a little bit more time before the re-architecture of API and cloud backend is beta ready.

    I apologize for the delay and understand how this affects your personal timeline… however, we really want to make sure that we can stay on top of the regulations and offer the most seamless (and compliant) integration for our customers.

        I also was anticipating that this feature would be included in the forever license I just purchased. I'm not finding it. There are other features I might deploy, but being able to add a signature to a document is pretty standard and needed immediately. Is there any workaround? Like using the gravity forms integration to capture fields and then merging with a PDF?

        Could you add me to your beta? I also would really like to be able to have users sign PDFs.

        Thank you,
        Chris

        Is there any update on this? I am considering using this for a site I'm building for a surgeon, who has intake forms that he would like to have filled out electronically. The forms are already generated, he just needs a system to be able to fill them out, and then digitally sign. Any word on whether or not this is possible yet?

        I really need this feature so my existing pdf can be signed electronically. Please add me to your beta version. Thanks a lot!

        Surprise! No ability to upload pdf for signing, no ability to write initials, not enough signature fonts.
        All supposedly in the works according to a response I received today. Until that point in time this app is of no use to me. The documentation did not point out these 3 very important shortcomings. Standing by for the improvements.
