Article ID: 100
Last updated: 11 Jan, 2016

Overview
The Dynamic Disclaimer Text allows you to setup legal text that will appear above a customer’s signature. The text can be configured to display on an electronic signature pad or on a printed ticket or both. Some text can be specified to always appear, while other text can be specified to appear only when certain commodities are on the ticket. In the case of printed disclaimer, it is also possible to have data fields substituted into the printed text.

Signature Pad
Using SigConfig, create a contract with ID number 2. The only text in the contract should be: %text%. Remember to update the contract to jpegger.

Scale Ticket and Cashier Receipt
The Ticket and Receipt need a one line field above the signature area for the ‘disclaimer’ field. The field should be designated as ‘stretch with overflow’ in the fields properties. All subsequent fields in the same report band must be designated as ‘float’ in the fields properties. A sample Scale Ticket and a sample Cashier Receipt can be downloaded below.

Disclaimer Text Creation
In Back Office; Maintenance; Setup; Program Options; Disclaimer Text tab, create as many text sections as required. The ‘Standard Text’ is the text that will always appear, whereas ‘Optional Text’ will only be printed when associated commodities are on the ticket. Each text section can be designated as ‘Print’, ‘Pad’ or both. Standard Text must have an ID of 1. Optional text will have ID’s of 2 or higher. Of those sections marked as ‘Print’, the numbers must be unique, ie. no duplicates. Of those sections marked as ‘Pad’, the numbers must be unique, ie. no duplicates. It is allowed to have two sections with the same ID number, as long as one is for ‘Print” and one is for ‘Pad’.

Optional Text
Optional text is assigned to a particular commodity in Back Office; Master Files; Commodity; Commodity Master; Commodity Pricing Tab. In the lower right corner is a list of any optional text that will be triggered by the commodity. To add or remove optional text, press ‘Choose Text’.
