How does a digital signature work in TB Forms?

Therabyte’s forms include a wonderful feature where you can let a client affirm that the data submitted--e.g., the consent privileges-- is true and/or accurate. This will make sure that your client has verified the contents of the form they have submitted and reduces the risk of duplication or alteration of their answers.

When you enable this feature, the client won’t be able to submit the form unless he/she will sign the parts where they need to verify that the contents are true and valid.


  • In the Preview mode of a block, there is a difference in how the Digital Signature Feature will appear on a custom block versus a built-in block. Here’s an example:

  1. A sample built-in block 

  1. A sample custom block (basic or bookmark type) - tick the signature button on
