BrightGen's Signature Capture on the Salesforce AppExchange for Components is now even more powerful.

The free Lightning Component from BrightGen allows users to capture a signature via a browser or mobile device, using an HTML5 canvas, and stores the captured signature as an attachment against a Salesforce record. 

With the latest update, you now also have the option of saving the signature as a Salesforce File. This option has been requested as a preference for some Users, but will become essential over time as Attachments are being deprecated in Lightning Experience, and already do not return in Searches.

The new Signature Capture is available through the AppExchange, or existing users looking to benefit just need to update and add the attribute to their component. 

More about Signature Capture from BrightGen

Signature Capture is a pure HTML5 native Lightning Component that allows users and customers to draw their signature in an area of a web page associated with a Salesforce record.

This process can be repeated until the signer is happy that the captured image is an accurate representation of their signature, at which point they can click a button to save it.

The signature is then converted into an image file and uploaded to Salesforce, where it is stored as an attachment against the Salesforce record named 'Signature.png' - or now, saved as a Salesforce file.

Signature Capture is available as a managed package, and does not rely on any third party JavaScript. The App Exchange listing includes a full implementation guide with example markup, and the package contains a demonstration application.

If you'd like to see the free application in action, here's a short video of the demonstration app:
