If you set up a table of related "signature" records, you can use the CreatedBY option to log the account or user name of the person logging a specific "signature". Each such step in the process can result in another such related record being created.
Just to double check that I understand what you are suggesting.
If you set up a table of related "signature" records
I guess my People table would do it. Is it correct?
People --< PeopleDeviation >-- Deviation
you can use the CreatedBY option to log the account or user name of the person logging a specific "signature"
As I understand it, everytime that I need an electronic signature in a particular place on the Deviation layout, I should put a CreatedBy field whose value is selected from the People table. Is this what you meant?
You couldn't use the People table as you will create multiple records for the same person--each logging a signature for a different deviation record.
This should be a new table where each record documents one such signature by one person. It will, of course need to link to the Deviation table, but can also link to the People table if you want it to. You have a number of different auto-enter options you can use to automatically Log the ID of the current user when a record is created in this table.
Okay, I'll give it a try.
