Engagement makes it easy and convenient to sign forms electronically. That means no more printing and hassle with physical paperwork! Save a default signature that can be used anytime and across multiple locations (if needed).
By default, users that are setup in the Doctor role will have access to sign forms electronically in Engagement without additional setup required. In order to enable the Electronic Signatures for other user types (Office Manager, Hygienist, or Dental Assistant), you will need to customize their user permissions in order to enable this feature.
Watch the short video below for an overview of how to setup and add electronic signatures in Engagement:
