In Drake Accounting, you can use your signature on different documents. You may upload your name from a separate file into the software, or you can use a Signature Pad to capture your signature. 

Drake Accounting is compatible with Wacom and Topaz products.

Drake Accounting also accepts any traditional image format for signatures, so if you can acquire the signature image through other means, you may upload the file into Drake Accounting.

  1. Go to Setup> Electronic Signatures.
    • If you do not have a signature pad connected to the computer, the following message appears:
  2. Click OK to dismiss the message and enter the Electronic Signature Setup.
  3. Click New and create a name for the preparer.
  4. Select which modules will use the electronic signature: Payroll, Accounts Payable, State Tax, or Wage Reports.
  5. Select From File to upload a signature from a file. Browse to the location where the signature saved. 
  6. Click Open
  7. Click Save when finished.
  8. To use the signature from a signature pad, select Signature Pad, and create the signature on the pad.
  9. 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.
