A streamlined, real signature experience for Google Forms
3 signatures for free every month - so give it a try!
Contracts, agreements, onboarding, and anything else you can think of can now have a slick, totally modern, on-any-device signing process
Install through the Google Add-on store in Google Forms
In our own business we previously used a paid, PDF-based digitial signature provider
Most of our users open their document on their phones. Since PDF's are so awkward to navigate on a mobile, they would just sign it without really reading it properly
We decided that actually reading and interacting with agreements is important. What's the benefit of a PKI-certified signature if the person signing didn't really know what they were agreeing to
We prioritised greater interaction with the document, with user less effort. That way users actually read the content! Now when they sign, you know they mean it
Google Forms was a great base for this, so we created the ability to sign on-screen as the cherry on top. Everyone involved has full confidence and understanding of the content of the document, the identity of the signatory, and their intent to accept. Win, win, win!

Google back-end slowness affecting several components
For some users, the Multiple Signature signing page may not be appearing correctly. Alternately, the signature may not be appearing within the spreadsheet
Closely related: all other actions might be effected. Several developers are reporting failures when using the Google back-end we're also using. We're following progress on this
Multiple Signatures are still free
If your Multiple Signatures are affected, please try using Cancel signatures, and re-do Accept Multiple Signatures. This won't use any of your available quota, and you won't lose any that have already been drawn and appended to the spreadsheet
Please let us know your experiences, including if a particular browser works when another doesn't
What we're working on
When opening the add-on, we're aware of a lag of up to a minute before data is available. This is a side-effect of the Google add-ons script which has to be woken-up in some regions
We're working on a method to make this much faster
We've added instructions to the relevant signing page to avoid the No Signature page when you know you've got one waiting
July 2019 update
What a great month!
Big new feature
Multiple Signatures - get many signatures on one Form. Great for sign-ups, or any case where one Form to one signatory isn't the best fit
Also - they're free until 1 August
We've cleaned-up the user interface to look brighter and lighter
The actual signature is now visibly sharper, and you can do tiny little dots! No more slightly-drag-to-dot
Auto-refresh. If you're the first in your region to use the add-on in a little while, it can be a bit sluggish to start. Now it re-loads itself if it's taking too long
Potential problem with Multiple Signatures
Unable to append a drawn signature
- 14 June 2019 | We have detected a bug which prevents us from adding the signature image to Google Forms
Users could draw their signature, and click Confirm Signature. The window will dim but the user won't receive the notice saying they can continue. We have now added notices to the signing pages
We have located the issue and reported it to Google
- 15 June 2019 | Other Google Script users have come across the same issue and reported to Google
- 17 June 2019 | Increasing number of users noting that they have encountered the problem in their projects
- 18 June 2019 | Google have acknowledged their error and are working to fix it
- 21 June 2019 | Resolved!
