Microsoft has announced that it has developed a proof-of-concept program that allows for digital signatures to be made during Teams meetings. The company said that e-signature providers will be able to implement the solution.
With a few clicks, a Teams participant will be able to share a document that needs to be signed with the rest of the group. Microsoft said that certain common documents in meetings that need to be signed include purchase agreements, incoming invoices, and NDAs.
Given the professional nature of Microsoft Teams, it is not difficult to learn that e-signature support has been a common feature request. At the moment, the desktop Teams client is available and support will be added for the mobile and web applications in the near future. A feature feature is also available for guest and anonymous users in the event.
Microsoft has arranged a code on GitHub so that providers may modify the type of signature that they need, such as a manual signature, an electronic signature, or a certificate-based signature. The code can be also used in conjunction with other things, such as accepting changes in documents or code review.
