    This seems like such a simple addition and it's rather annoying that SP has not added this yet. Especially considering that Medicaid and other insurance companies require this.

    Hi everyone, we completely understand the need for client signatures on Treatment Plans and Consent Forms, and our team is actively working on enhancements to SimplePractice that will enable you to send a Treatment Plan for signature through the Portal. You can already obtain an eSignature on Consent Forms by sending them to the client via the Share button. Our most recent step forward in our progress on these features is our rollout of cursive clinician signatures, which changes how clinician signatures display on signed forms and notes. We're looking forward to releasing even more enhancements to SimplePractice to better support your workflow.

    Hi, I hate to pile on the complaints, but I do not see how to turn off the cursive signature for myself to sign progress notes.  A signature is a very personal thing, so to have only one style of cursive AND not be able to turn it off is especially annoying. Is there a way to opt out of this?

    Agree. I either want to turn the signature off or have options on what it looks like. I don't like the current cursive style.

    Agree. If we can't opt out of this automatic signature can you at least make an option where we can actually sign our signature using some type of docusign app on our phones?

    I would also appreciate an option to change the style of the signature.  It is difficult to read. Very welcome addition to the system- hopefully just working out some bugs. :)

    Agree, this needs to be my own actual digital signature, not a font.

    Yes please, I am not signing my notes right now because that is NOT my signature

    Has there been any progress on this issue of personalized cursive signatures?

    I actually prefer the font over the Times New Roman generic lettering that is there now. The other looked more like my signature. How do we get that back?

    I would also appreciate an option to change the style of the signature.  It is difficult to read and it is not the style I believe is the best representation for me. This addition is appreciated but needs upgrading. Hopefully, that will be coming sooner than later.

    Why isn't anyone from SP responding to these last posts?

    My credentials have changed. How do I fix that?

    Okay, Simple Practice staff, now that you made it so that patients and physicians can sign documents (with their own actual signature) via the patient portal, LET'S DO THAT FOR CLINICIANS.

    Yes agreed. I should be able tonsubmit my actual signature on my documents. Why is this not part of SP?

    I'm really surprised this issue has not been resolved.  I posted on this issue 9 months ago.

    Agree with the comment, this should be an easy fix.  SP (Gillian) wrote that they were addressing this one year ago.

    Disappointing,.... for sure.

    Also... I want to be able to sign notes—  not just treatment plans and consent forms.  I believe whenever we need to sign a document, we should have access to a saved personalized signature within our individual user account.
