Microsoft’s App Enables Real-Time Document Signing During Team Meetings
Microsoft has created a sample app for teams that allows people to sign documents during remote meetings.
According to Windows Central, the application allows users to attach a document to a meeting for attendees to sign, such as a purchase agreement, invoice, or NDA.
Teams Ecosystem Engineering created the sample app as a proof of concept for implementation by independent software vendors (ISVs) or other clients. According to the report, the complete project is available and documented on GitHub, which should benefit organizations that want to utilize it in meetings. The app allows users to attach a document to a meeting for attendees to review or sign. For authentication, it supports Teams single-sign-on (SSO).
According to the report, it also allows content sharing during the meeting stage, adaptive cards, and the Teams people picker. Microsoft stated that the app could be modified to operate with additional scenarios that require signing off, such as evaluating and approving code or collaborative document creation.
The sample app is now accessible for Teams desktop clients. According to the article, mobile and web support are on the way, though Microsoft did not specify when the functionality was announced in its Tech Community post. The app currently only works with users from the same organization or tenant. It also mentioned that guest and anonymous user support are on the way.
