Hello, I have created some html on a form so that it can look like a PDF document that needs to be signed. But the problem is once people sign the form and Submit it, it loses all off the html and design elements. Any way I can have the form submissions look exactly like the form. For example I'm trying to treat formidable forms like docu sign. I use html to upload the image of a document then I just add a signature. Any suggestions?    Thanks

How are you viewing the entries after they are submitted? Are you using a view?

I'm viewing them through the form entries section. I also created a formidable view in a table and got similar results. Do you have any recommendations on how to pretty much turn formidable forms into docusign? That's my objective.  Thanks

<p>First, I wouldn't reinvent the Docusign wheel. In the US, electronic signatures need to comply with both the United States Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce (ESIGN) Act, and the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA). These laws have four major requirements for an electronic signature to be recognized as valid under U.S. law. In addition, if you are collecting signatures for life sciences, the signatures must comply with 21 CFR Part II. I also wouldn't use tables. I would use the grid view. Grid view is CSS grid and you can incorporate flex as well. You could possibly output a signed document as a PDF and display that or you can create a view that has all the HTML elements and custom CSS to display the output as you wish.</p>

"You can create a view that has all the HTML elements and custom CSS to display the output as you wish" Any reference documents for this? That would be awesome

In the content section (as well as the before and after sections) you can use any HTML you want.
