New design element for forms as a container for handwritten signatures (with Pencil/stylus)

It should be possible to create documents like orders and contracts with customers including handwritten signatures on iPad completely with IDMA. At the moment we are using PDF forms - with a hard break in our workflow as a conclusion.

    This shouldn't be restricted to Nomad / mobile operating systems. We use Notes on Windows tablets and pens. Any solution should work on the desktop version of Windows and Notes.

    This requirement comes up again and again from customers

    Yes! This keeps our entire workflow in Notes Domino without API mess. Thanks!

    This would be an amazing feature for a couple of our clients! Please consider doing this!

    Had a client ask for this specifically today when discussing a nomad app - its a feature that is definitely needed

    This is urgent!
    Even Low-Code SAAS solutions support this featue with offline app functionality, too.

    This gets my vote too... using Nomad as an extension of an existing application is looking like a great alternative to a new, bespoke development, except that we've not found a neat way to capture a signature. BillK.

    the functionality Detlev Poettgen described is essential for using Nomad for technical support applications in the field. Please implement this.

    Yes please. ASAP for this option.

    While this idea is likely to be implemented, I would go for sooner than later. If you are in the service industry, being able to take a customer/client signature on a device rather than paper if of huge benefit.

    Great idea. 


    Direct sketches in a rich text field will be suffienct

    Yes!  This is very popular on other mobile platforms and can have multiple uses and benefits.

    your comment combines this idea with https://domino.ideas.aha.io/ideas/DMA-I-7 and adds very useful aspects. Thank you!

    A completely new field type will be difficult and not necessary and a RichText field will be sufficient.
    I'm not only thinking about a signature, but also about being able to make text notes or sketches directly with the pencil.
    It would therefore be good to have additional new field properties for an RichTextfield only for Nomad, for example to set the following:
    - Pencil support yes / no
    + Signature only
    + Selector for line thickness
    + eraser
    + brush types
    + colour
    - the field size (the painting area) on the form

    In the Notes client such a field would simply be displayed as a normal rich text field with an embedded graphic.

    Great idea.
    Can be used for signatures or simple taking some hand-written notes or to drawings with the Pencil.
