MachForm 12 Released. New Signature Field and Embed PDF!

Howdy folks! ūüôā

We’ve been working hard since our last update on January and I’m happy to let you know that we’ve added several exciting new features into MachForm!

New and Improved Signature Field!

We have rewritten the entire Signature field code and it’s now better than ever. The new signature field generates a smoother signature and compatible with more devices. Fully support display with High DPI and works great with Tablet PC (Microsoft Surface Pro), either using a mouse, touch screen or stylus pen.

New Signature Field

Also, the new signature field allows you to either draw the signature or just type it and MachForm will generate the signature image!

Audit Trail

Digital signatures are just as legally binding as handwritten signatures. Now that we’ve improved the signature field, we also went further and provide you with the tool to ensure the integrity of your data: Audit Trail

Audit Trail

When you update any form’s entry, MachForm will automatically log the complete information (Name, Email, IP Address, Browser information, Timestamp) of the person who modified the entry.

Embed PDF Document

Need to display large contract document to your client? Or display complex infographics data? Just put them into PDF document and then embed the PDF directly into your form!

Embed PDF

We’ve improved the Media field and you can now use it to embed PDF documents directly into your forms.

Easy Export/Import Form Template

This feature was a bit hidden and now we’ve moved it to the Form Manager page so that any users could easily export or import form template.

Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) support for Stripe

Strong Customer Authentication (SCA), a new rule coming into effect on September 14, 2019 as part of PSD2 regulation in Europe, will require changes to how your European customers authenticate online payments.

When it goes into effect, a form of two-factor authentication will be required for many card payments. Unless you update your integration, your customers’ banks will decline many transactions.

We’ve updated our Stripe integration to fully support Strong Customer Authentication. Updating your MachForm with this version (v12) will make you comply with the SCA rule.

Customizable PDF Content

Yes, finally, just like the email content template that is fully customizable, you can now also customize the content of the PDF attached to the notification emails!

Export/Import Form Template

These new features are part of the latest version of MachForm (Version 12) which we’ve just released today¬†and it is now available for downloads on Billing Area.
