Electronic Signature GxP Need: Intra-Signature Triggers

Another enhancement to the electronic signature widget (in addition to pre-conditions, pre-signature triggers, etc.), would be to enable a “signature status” that is only populated TRUE if the signature is valid, but is also associated with the signature in the record history.

Currently I can change this status after the signature is performed via signature widget trigger, but this change isn’t signed for, it just is. I also wouldn’t want to change this status before the signature is applied to the data, as I am using the signature status as a means to reference whether the updated data is approved and usable, which it isn’t until the signature is applied.

This could be seen as having pre-signature triggers, intra-signature triggers, and post-signature triggers. The intra-signature trigger results should also show in the preview of what the user is signing for, but should not actually execute unless the signature is completed.

Thanks for the suggestion, Jim! (and for linking the related suggestions on e-signatures as well, that is really helpful) - I will make sure this feedback gets to the team.


We’ve just released a new feature that should help with this. You can now enable/disable Buttons and Signature widgets based on the validity of the input widgets on the step.

Check out the Knowledge Base article for all the details on how to implement: [Data Validation with Input Widgets]

It not the fully trigger functionality you detailed in you post, so let us know what you think, and if this helps.
