Note: This process is repeated thrice if there are 3 users. Every user gets appended in the grid.
- User can click on the dropdown, which will list all the team members from the logged-in user's company. He can manually pick the users who needs to sign from the dropdown list. All the selected user's data is picked from their respective profiles and populated. A member will sign and move to the next member.
- Once all members complete their signatures, they hit Done' button on the 'Team Members' popup.
- If 'Get Signature' is done again at a later stage, then, the new members should append to the existing signatures. If any member(s) has to be removed, they have to be selected and removed manually. It will not get reset if 'Get Signature' is clicked the next time.
- The 'Date /Time' Column is shown and Hidden in the grid based on the configuration. It will show the column name as ONLY 'Date' if Date only has been configured.
