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 Show This Field – For Roles to Internal.
  2. Set the default value of the Date field to =if Signature.Svg !=null then DateTime.Today else null Make sure to update ‘Signature’ to the name of the Signature field on your form.
  3. Insert a Calculation field on your form set to the Date type.
  4. Set the calculation to equal the Date field value (ex: =Date)

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