Installation & Setup

Drake Accounting®: How do I set up electronic signatures?


Within Drake Accounting®, you have the option to use your own signature on different documents. Your signature can be uploaded from a separate file into the software or you can select to use a signature pad to capture your signature. 

Drake Accounting® is compatible with Wacom and Topaz products. Starting with DAS20, Scriptel signature pads will also be supported. 

Go to Setup > Electronic Signatures.

If you do not have a signature pad connected to the computer, you will receive the following message:


Click OK to get past the message and to the Electronic Signature Setup.

Click New and create a name for the preparer and select which modules the electronic signature is going to be used for such as Payroll, Accounts Payable, Tax Forms, and Preparer.

To upload the signature from a file, select From File and browse to the location where the signature has been saved.

Click Open

Click Save when finished.

To use the signature from a signature pad, select Signature Pad and create the signature on the pad.

Click Save once you are finished.

When you go to review a report or a check stub, the signature will show in the appropriate place for that specific document.
