The Electronic Signature Settings tab appears only for Metasys for Validated Environments (MVE) installations. This tab allows you to define reasons for electronic signature requirements.

MVE sites have settings in the Site Object for enabling annotation and electronic signature functionality. You can set the MVE site to require only annotations, only electronic signatures, both annotations and signatures, or neither annotations nor signatures. Non-MVE sites may optionally define and use annotations; however, electronic signatures are specific to MVE sites.

You can configure electronic signatures at the device and object levels. Table 1 describes the attributes of the Electronic Signature Settings tab.
