Signature Task

Signature Task is a way to simply and instantly collect digital signatures from the field. Signee's use the touchscreen on their mobile device to provide their signature within a GoSpotCheck Mission. 

Adding Signature Task to a Mission

Admins and Managers can add a Signature Tasks in the same way you'd add any other task to a mission. The signature task tile appears alphabetically in the "+ New Task" menu. You can also use Signature Tasks as conditional tasks on a Mission. For example:

1. "Did you speak to the manager?" (Yes/No Task)
1.1 (on yes response) "Collect the manager's signature" (Signature Task)


Collecting a signature using the Mobile App

When a Signature Task is deployed to a Mission, tap the Signature Task button and the screen will automatically rotate into landscape mode. The user will be prompted to enter the full name of the signee, and enter a signature using their finger on the line provided. Made a mistake? Hit the Clear button to try again. When you are satisfied with the signature, hit Done. You'll be returned to the Mission where you can continue answering questions and submit when finished.

When viewing Mission Responses which have already been submitted (from the My Activity or History Tab), the image of the signature is not displayed for privacy reasons.


Signature Task is not compatible with MyGSC at this time.


Viewing Signature Tasks in the Web Dashboard

For Missions containing Signature Tasks, Admins and Managers can view the name of the signer and the date when the signature was collected on the Mission Overview page.

  • The image of the signature is not displayed on the web dashboard, for liability and privacy reasons. Know that the Signature images are are stored securely on GoSpotCheck servers. No one outside of GoSpotCheck will have access to these signatures.
  • If you need access to a signature image file after it has been submitted, you will need written permission from the signer to share the signature. Once permission is received, GoSpotCheck will be able to share the requested signature with the company admin.

Are signatures captured with Signature Task considered legally binding?

While Signature Task is an effective tool to collect signatures out in the field, it does not provide the same legal implications as other official digital signature collection tools. If you intend to use these signatures as legal validation, please consult outside counsel.
