Electronic signatures

Electronic signatures consist of a username and password. In a review, a moderator can require electronic signatures to show that a person in a particular role approves the review. Electronic signatures can also be added to baselines.

Signatures are captured with a time and date stamp, and an audit trail that ties the signature to the individual user, and baseline or reviews where the signature was added.

Review moderators can require a signature for a review and add a signer role. All review signatures carry the Signature meaning: "I approve the content of this review."

Electronic signatures, time stamps, signer roles, and signature meaning are all visible in review activity.


You can't delete a review with an electronic signature, or a baseline created from a review with an electronic signature.

Electronic signatures depend on the authentication system your organization is using. Authentication properties can be configured by a system administrator.
