I am creating a form in which there is a list of activities that need to be completed by the user (or multiple users). Each activity will need to sign for. After the last activity, the user needs to sign that all activities have been completed before the form goes to the next department for completing their activities.
I'd like to restrict the signing of that last signature for each department until all the other activity completion signatures have been inserted.
I've tried the show/hid function - but that didn't seem to work...
I've exhausted my googling! LOL please help!
How to, PDF forms, Security digital signatures and esignatures
At first I tried the show/hide in the Sign tab for each field...but I must have done something wrong because the field "showed" after the first activity was signed for
Then I found this code suggestion - placed in a separate text field (hidden) in the Calculate tab - adding in the steps to look at for this particular signing function. (THIS WORKED)... Guess I needed to google just one more time! LOL I am a 'newbie' when it comes to working with code - so the explanaition in the article I found wasn't as clear as I needed at first - but some test-and-try - and I finally got to my desired result. I put some 'comments' in to help the next person that finds this...(please edit it if I didn't quite get the explanation correct)
I will do this to the other column of activities that the next department needs to do and I should be ready to go!
[comment: replace "ProdSignStep1..." with the field that you need to have filled in/completed before the last signing field displays. Do this with all fields that need to be filled in before the "last" field displays. Copy this line and change/add/remove as needed for your form data
