Press “Save 

 

You will see a new Digital Signature created for you. This will display your name and some placeholder information.  

 

OPTIONAL: 

You can customise your signature to display a hand-written signature. To do so, click the “Create” button, on the right of the screen, otherwise click “Continue”. 

 

 

 

 

You will now be able to choose to use either text,  to draw a signature with your mouse, trackpad or other drawing input, or to use an existing image of your signature. We recommend using the “Draw” option and drawing your signature as you would normally on paper. 

If you have an existing scan or photograph of your handwritten signature, you can use this too. Follow this guide for more instructions(hyperlink to an external article explaining process)

Once you have finished customising your Digital Signature, give your new digital signature a name. Click in the “Preset name” textbox and give it a name like [Firstname]’s Signature.  

 

Once set, continue and press the “Save” button. Enter the Digital ID password you created, then click “Sign”. 

 

You will be asked to save a new copy of the form you are filling out. Ensure you remember where you save this form so that you send this signed copy, and not the original, blank copy.
