Additional Signature Block Data

When placing a signature or an initial into a document signature block, you also have the option of placing additional signature block data along with it. There are different options based on what type of document you are using, however. For PDF documents, these data can consist of one or more of the following and as many instances of each as is needed:

Data Options

  • Email Address
  • Title
  • Organization
  • Date/Time (with a variety of formats)
    • DateTime
    • ShortDate
    • LongDate
  • Printed Name
  • IP Address
  • DocumentID
  • TaskID
  • and even custom text of your choosing
task = new TaskInsertModel()
           Type = TaskInsertModel.TypeEnum.Signature,
           SignatureBlock = new SignatureBlockModel()
               Signature = new SignatureModel()
                   PlaceSignatureOnAdditionalPdfSignaturePage = true
               AdditionalPdfDataPlacements = new List<object>
                   new SignatureBlockPdfDataPlacementModel()
                       Type = SignatureBlockPdfDataPlacementModel.TypeEnum.PrintedName
                   new SignatureBlockPdfDataPlacementModel()
                       Type = SignatureBlockPdfDataPlacementModel.TypeEnum.Title
                   new SignatureBlockPdfDataPlacementModel()
                       Type = SignatureBlockPdfDataPlacementModel.TypeEnum.Organization
                   new SignatureBlockPdfDataPlacementModel()
                       Type = SignatureBlockPdfDataPlacementModel.TypeEnum.ShortDate

By running the code above, you should see an output in your document that looks something like the the image below. Keep in mind that you can place each of the additional signature block data items independently and even mix the placement methods as described in the Signature Block Placement Methods section.
