ImageNow: Electronic Signature
ImageNow: Electronic/Digital Signatures are used on Grants and Purchase orders. Only a few people have permission to use this option on campus. A password is required when using the electronic/digital signature. Once an electronic/digital signature is applied to a document the annotations are greyed out and no longer available.
(This is different from the All Forms Name/Date Signature Stamp)
Technical Definition: Electronic/Digital signatures are used with all the legal authority of "wet ink" but without the cumbersome and time-consuming tasks of printing, faxing, mailing and manually validating signed paper.
