  2. A blank screen appears for the candidate(s) in the signature step


  • Signature required form(s) are not found in the ONB system 
  • Since the form was deleted in the server level, ONB was unable to ping the form for the candidate to sign
  • The issue is due to the error message displayed below:



  • Go through the affected candidate's forms to determine which among the custom forms are no longer in the system and requires signature.
