With GoCanvas you can quickly and easily capture signatures on your mobile device. Once captured, the signature is uploaded to our servers and will be visible when viewing your submission in your browser or in the PDF. In addition, the signatures can also be downloaded via our Webservices API.
Add signature capture to your mobile App
To add signature capture, go to the Apps page and launch the App Builder for your existing App, or click Create New App if your App has not already been created.
Click to open the field palette and drag a Signature field into your App design.
Signature capture on mobile
If a signature has not been captured, you will see that the signature capture box reads "Capture Signature."
Clicking the field will automatically rotate your device to landscape in order to provide a larger signature area. Note: iPad Air 2's and iPad Pros (running iOS 11) will not automatically rotate. If the user rotates the device before opening the field, it will be in landscape. If not, signature will remain in portrait.
Once the signature is captured, the field will read "Signature Captured." You can press the magnifying glass to preview the signature.
Finger vs. Stylus
On many devices, you can sign with either your finger or a stylus. A signature initiated with a finger is completely acceptable, but for those who would like a stylus to offer their clients to sign we recommend this one.
