The title says it all. I can't seem to find any information on using/inserting digital signatures in Word (Mac OS).

 

I want to create signature lines in Word documents, and have designated signees click to sign on them. Apparently this feature is available for Windows OS but not Mac.

 

Any leads would be appreciarted.

Hi @Deleted 

 

You are correct. It is available on Windows but not on Mac. See Uservoice here -

Recommendation at this time would be to consider a third party solution such as Docusign or Adobe which can work with Office 365. That will do what you need.

 

Hope that answers your question

 

Best, Chris
