Multiple signatures required on form

Hi Power Apps Community,

I am creating a form which requires multiple people to sign off on. I can only get it to work for one signature.

-- Currently: only one person is able to sign the form in the app, I then use Power Automate to convert the signature and then add the signature in the relevant PDF document. 

Is what I am trying to achieve possible?

If so, I would really appreciate any assistance on creating a solution for this.

Thank you in advance.

Can you duplicate the existing signature control that is working so you have two.

One will initially sign, then the other person will open the form in edit. In EditForm Add the other signature and resubmit the form.

Hi @Data_Enthusiast ,

Yes, you can add one of more signatures to a PDF generated by a HTML document using OneDrive to convert it. Here is a video from @ChinoDoesStuff that explains the process. This is quite complex and it is very important you understand how to apply this to your process to be able achieve this. If your budget strecthes to Per User licensing, the Word Online (Business) connector does it much easier.

Hi @WarrenBelz 

I am familiar with this process. The problem I have is allowing multiple people to use the same application to add their respective signatures.

Hi @eka24 

Apologies, I am not quite following.

So, if the first person signs, the signature is saved. When the second person signs, does it not override / or create a new file with the second signature?

@Data_Enthusiast ,

Ok you did not mention that.

You just need to either have two pen inputs or set a Variable (like the below) on a pop-up on the one pen input to set which one of the two fields in your data source to save it to. In the one shown, I grab both signature paths and incorporate them into a HTML document.

I have not actually practice it. But give it a trial.

Yes the first person signs one field and save the form.

The second person opens the the form in edit then Add the other signature field then resubmit the form.

 

The override will come in only if there is on signature control. In this case make two signature controls, one for each other.

@Data_Enthusiast ,

Both @eka24 and myself can help you. I will be offline shortly due to time zone.

Hi @WarrenBelz 

Thanks for checking in.

Unfortunately, I have not come right yet with this. Been trying to identify a potential solution.

More background:

- I have 5 users who need to sign the same form

- There is no particular order in terms of who may sign first

- Once person A signs, the other 4 must get notified of the form being signed and that a signature is required from them.

I am not sure if multiple users may access the same session?
