Fillable Form

I created a form with several fields that need to be fill-out for a user, sign the document and date it. I found that with e-signing, Adobe is redirecting to "save" the document. After is backing up to keep going with the file to fill-out the date field. Save again. Means the user is saving the pdf at least two (2) times. The user is attaching the pdf to an email and sending to say Supervisor1. Supervisor1 download and open the pdf but can edit/modify the content of the fields that the first user filled-out. Supervisor1 sign, save, add date and save again. Attach the file to Supervisor2 who is repeating the process (able to modify/edit the fields). What am I missing?

I can not allowed to anyone different than the first user to edit/modify the content of the initals fields. I am attaching the file so you can take a look before say that its no possible.

Any help really appreciated.

You need to set the signature field to lock the other fields when signed. This is one of the built-in command under the Signed tab.

There's really no need to have a separate date field. The Signature will automatically show the date and time it was signed.
Alternatively, you can use a script to automatically fill in the date field when the signature is applied, via the Signed event of the latter.

Already I was working in that suggestion thank you. The main issue still is there. Whoever is receiving the file can modify the content of the fields/information from the First sender. What am I missing?

Thank for your help and time. I did not check the "signed" options in the Signature" field. Last question for this thread is what is the sense for the Locked checkmark in any of the tabs from the Field Properties?, again thanks.

To prevent you (the form creator, not the end-user) from accidentally moving or modifying the properties of the field while work on your form. It has no meaning for the end-user.
