Online signatures for order confirmations¶
The Odoo Sales application provides customers with the ability to confirm orders, via an online signature, directly on the sales order. Once the sales order is electronically signed by the customer, the salesperson attached to the sales order is instantly notified that the order is confirmed.

Order confirmations with online signatures¶
When clients access quotations online through their customer portal, there’s a Sign & Pay button directly on the quotation.
When clicked, a Validate Order pop-up window appears. In this pop-up window, the Full Name field is auto-populated, based on the contact information in the database.
Then, customers have the option to enter an online signature with any of the following options: Auto, Draw, or Load.
Auto lets Odoo automatically generate an online signature based on the information in the Full Name field. Draw lets the customer use the cursor to create a custom signature directly on the pop-up window. And Load lets the customer upload a previously-created signature file from their computer.
After the customer has chosen any of the three previously mentioned signature options (Auto, Draw, or Load), they will click the Accept & Sign button.
When Accept & Sign is clicked, the various payment method options become available for them to choose from (if the online payment option applies to this quotation).
Then, when the quotation is paid and confirmed, a delivery order is automatically created (if the Odoo Inventory app is installed).
