How to Use Capture Signature in OneSpan Sign

Dilani Silva,

OneSpan Sign offers Capture Signature, a signature option that gives signers the flexibility to review documents on their PC and then provide a handwritten signature via their mobile device. Signers can transform their mobile device into a signature capture pad to create a handwritten signature using their finger or stylus pen. 

In this blog, we’ll demonstrate how to obtain handwritten signatures in documents using the Capture Signature option in OneSpan Sign. We’ll also show how signers can provide a handwritten signature when the Capture Signature option is enforced in documents.

Let’s take a closer look at how this feature works:

How Signers Can Provide a Handwritten Signature

They select the “Sign with Mobile” option at the bottom left-hand side. This triggers an email which is sent to the signer’s phone to access the document and sign.
