eSignature for Online Applications

An online application form is a great tool for collecting data and processing it structured and efficiently. Application forms are widely used in various industries such as education, real estate, banking, etc., and typically include questions regarding respondents’ personal information. Save time on the application process by using signNow’s advanced form creator, allowing you to collect data with minimal chance for an error and process it securely.

How to speed up the application process with signNow

Use signNow’s form maker to streamline the application process. Create, share, and collect application forms at ease in a single interface. Add fillable fields to a PDF, create form templates, and share them with multiple applicants. Once the application form is complete, you will be notified and able to further process the application. All forms are securely stored in your signNow account and can be accessed and downloaded at any time.

You can save time signing the form by digitally signing it with an electronic signature that has the same legal effect as a handwritten one. Just click on the signature field in the form, add a signature by typing or drawing it, or upload a picture of your handwritten signature.

How to create an application form with signNow

Create and share application forms to collect data from clients, partners, and staff in the most efficient and time-saving manner with signNow. You can make a form in a few clicks by uploading a file to signNow, adding the required fillable fields, and saving the file as a reusable template. This allows thousands of applicants to complete the form and submit their applications.

Apart from using simple text fields, you can insert dropdowns and signature fields in your form. Fillable fields allow respondents to add their data, including text, numbers, and special characters, while dropdown fields are used to choose one value from a list. There are also fields for text, date, initials, checkboxes, radio button, and attachment request fields you may add to an application form. The fields can be set up as optional or required.

Another useful feature is Conditional fields. Use conditional fields to make certain fillable fields in your form visible only when a specified condition is met. To add a conditional signature field to your document, take the following steps:
  1. Click on the signature field in the editor.
  2. Click on the Advanced option on the settings panel on the right.
  3. Check the Make this field conditional box.
  4. Select the field that describes the desired condition (e.g., once a specific field is filled in, the Signature Field will become visible for the recipient).
There is no need to code or use complex software. With signNow, you can create a reusable application form that meets your objectives and is easy to fill out.

How to add a signature on an online application
