Do you know how to correctly apply a digital signature to a .pdf document?
Pay forms, including overtime, timesheets, compressed work week schedules, leave without pay and part-time schedules, all require a signature (digital or wet). When the digital signature is not done correctly, the form must be sent back to the employee to be amended, resulting in delays in processing the transaction.

- Save As

- Select Save as type: PDF
Step 2 – Digitally sign PDF
