Need help with the signature panel and I'm told I need a merge tag
Expert:  Jeevan DSouza replied 8 months ago.

Hello there! Your signature field is fine. The signer needs to create a digital signature that can be inserted there.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
but the system that the document goes into tells me that it needs a "merge tag" for the digital signature.
Expert:  Jeevan DSouza replied 8 months ago.

What system are you using? I'm using Adobe Acrobat and it works just fine

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I am using it with a payroll timekeeping system called SHUGO
Expert:  Jeevan DSouza replied 8 months ago.

Sorry I'm not familiar with that software. I will opt-out and let another expert help you.

I know what it is asking for, since the signature that is populating the document is already in the database, it wants you to input the link name, here is a dirty description to help with understanding on the issue! 02_Create_Merge_Fields_in_PDF_Templates
Hope this helps, I do not know what your link fields are but they should be similar.
