Signature


A streamlined, real signature experience for Google Forms


3 signatures for free every month - so give it a try!

Need more then 3 in a month? They're just 15c USD each - and you can set your own logo on the signing page

Or bulk pricing at 5c USD

Run a school or charitable organisation? Get in touch for special pricing!

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!

November 2019 - work in progress

What we're working on right now

Multiple Signatures have become very popular recently and our previous system was having trouble keeping up with peak traffic

First patches implemented

Multiple Signature usage is free for the time being - so feel free to give it a good stress test!

The speed has been drastically improved at our end - let us know if thee's still any lag

The next patch will look back at existing Multi Signature sheets that might've been affected by the traffic problems

We're also working on a dashboard to more easily manage those "Pending" items and send reminders!


Other updates

Blank signatures can't be accepted. If a signatory tries, they're stopped and asked to draw something first

Single Signature "I'll let them know another way" mode has been improved to make things clearer and easier for people that have a few accounts logged-in at the same time - they'll still need to open a private window, but it's explained and gives them a button to copy the link

October 2019 update

Focusing on Multiple Signatures this month


Filling in the blanks

If there are any gaps or missing signatures, we'll fill in blanks with "Pending" links

You can send the link to your signatory or have them sign on your screen


#ERROR self-fix

Some locales used to get big ugly #ERROR results - the data was fine, but the links weren't formatted correctly for the region

Now the links are self-healing!


Both of the above occur on the next multi-signature response

September 2019 update

Single signature update

Pictures to come - we've made huge usability changes to single signatures

Now, signatories can't accidentally finish your Form without adding a signature. And instead of having to open links and tabs, then return to the Form, it's all packaged on a single page

All new Single Signatures will have this new experience and we're really pleased with how smooth it is - give it a try!

Price reduction and bulk rate

Multiple Signatures have proved quite popular. We have lower storage requirements for these, so are happy to be able to pass on the savings to you

We've also added a bulk-buy option, and plan to extend this range

See pending

Along with the Single Signatures update, we've added more detail and features to allow you to better manage your signatories

Including reminder emails, and logs of when you last contacted them

AUGUST 2019 Update

We didn't expect to have to re-write for a new database this month. But it's a blessing in disguise

Pending multiple signatures

If someone uses your Form but doesn't sign, no problem. There will be a "Pending" link which you can send to them

Speed

No more lag when opening the add-on!

No signature

We've added instructions to the relevant signing page to avoid the No Signature page when you know you've got one waiting

Cancelling a single signature

We refund you one of your available signatures if you need to cancel it before it's complete



Multiple Signature response sheets now include a unique link for every response

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

See how Multiple Signatures compares to Single Signature

Also - they're free until 1 August


Other stuff

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

Current status

All going smoothly
