Possible to have signatures added to a pdf report?

Hi all,

 

I can see the pen control exists but is there a way to capture signatures and then get them to show with the form as a pdf? I am making use of the sharepoint, one drive data sources

 

Thanks,

Re: Possible to have signatures added to a pdf report?

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Do you want to save the signature to SP or OneDrive?And then convert them to PDF?

I am afraid there is no directly to achieve that,because

The URL the Pen Input control captured as below :

appres://blobmanager/899e173585554dfca6eb38b373599f3b/20

which could not saved within Picture/Hyperlink type column.

 

As an alternative solution, you could consider take a try to save your signature as image file into a SP library, and then within your SP list, add a column to store the link to the image file stored within your SP library.

 

Please check and see if the following blog would help in your scenario:

And then do you want to convert the signature to PDF?

As I know, you need to use Microsoft Flow to help, for this question you can get one detail answer whether it can convert the signature to PDF and how to achievee it in Flow Community:

Hope this could be helpful.

Best Regards.

Thank you for the detailed reply! Had a look and helped me understand how it works.

 

In the end I followed the workaround provided by Tomasz Poszytek from this blog which is working perfectly for me: https://poszytek.eu/en/microsoft-en/office-365-en/flow-en/powerapps-hand-written-signature/

Re: Possible to have signatures added to a pdf report?

An easy and multi-purpose solution is found to add pen-input to Sharepoint/Email/PDF by utilizing the addition of a PowerApps Json functionality added on 02/05/2019.

The Short description on how to make this work is to save the pen input image in a JSON format asking the JSON function to include Binary Data:

Set( PenVar, JSON( PenInput1.Image,JSONFormat.IncludeBinaryData ) );
