How can I require today's date when collecting a signature?

To obtain the current date when collecting an electronic signature:

  1. Add a Date field to your form and set it to internal view only.
  2. Set the default value of the Date field to =DateTime.Today
  3. Insert a Calculation field on your form set to the Date type.
  4. Set the calculation to the Date field value (ex: =Date)

Now, the current date will display next to your Signature field.
