Title

Authentication

Post

     We are using signatures to "Sign" documents in filemaker. Sort of...

     Because many of the approvals are done on the computer, typically Windows, what has been set up is that a table that has the users name, password (Plain Text - GASP!), and a scanned, cropped version of their signature.

     When someone needs to "Sign" a document they select their name from a drop down, it asks for their password (via script) and then copies their signature to the "Signature" field. 

     As you can imagine, this proving to be unreliable. As well as being a bit ungainly to manage. 

     I haven't found anything on doing this, but I'm wondering if there is a way to as a user for their log in credentials for filemaker server to do the authentication...

     Baring that, does anyone have a better solution they have found to manage this situation?
