Enable electronic signatures for final reports

An administrator can allow electronic approval of final reports for completed analyses. When electronic signatures are allowed, a user that is assigned the Report role who generates a final report must also electronically sign the final report. The electronic signature includes the first and last name of the user, a time stamp, and sign-off comments for the signature in the final report footer.

A user can also generate a report with an electronic signature for visualization reports.

Electronic signatures are allowed by default.

This feature allows you to meet Title 21 CFR Part 11 of Federal Regulations that establishes the United States Food and Drug Administration regulations on electronic records and signatures, password policies, and user activity auditing.
