Are those Digital Signature fields? If so, you can use a script to check their values. If it's not null then they are signed.
as you may have gathered by now, i am looking for function which i can
if all signatures are signed copy to another location.The problem is i wont
know how many signatures a particular document has?
by way of example: the interview score form for example is based on the
panel of interviewers and all need to sign once they have evaluated the
a policy needs only one signature the one from the CEO, whilst a procedure
only needs one from the departmental head or whilst a dismissal form has
say six depending on the disciplinary panel that available, or say a
incident report has the details of the incident, witnesses if available and
the HOD, so this signatures on the forms vary.
As you can see, i don't know how many signatures a particular document will
have and thus need to solve this pro grammatically and copy file to
designated location once final signature is signed.
i have already written the windows service to sort the files in the folder
to which they will be copied. i am using a C# windows service which just
sorts the files based on thier corporate ID number to the departments it
any help would be helpful or advice. i have gone through your example and
it seems i need to know the number of signatures for your solution to work
in my situation.
Thank for all the help you have provided so far, really appreciate it..
Let's take a step back: How will the users sign the document, exactly?
they will be using digital signatures
Digital signature fields? If so, you can use the method I've described. If you need help with the code let me know.
