Reproducing the Issue

Example: Custom section

  1. Add field permissions for the custom element "Checkbox" for a Signature step:


  1. Launch a new form and route it to the Signature step.

The Checkbox field is not editable:

  • The Signature Stage is the stage in the process where all defined users sign the form to approve or acknowledge the content of the form.
  • When the form is routed to a Signature step, it is not possible to edit any fields in any section APART from the Signature section comments field. 
  • This is expected behaviour.
