Labfolder offers users two apps that allows for data validation, Sign & Witness and Signature Workflows. While the free in-ELN Sign & Witness function allows you to sign and request 1 more witness, Signature Workflows is a paid add-on to the Labfolder Advanced Version, designed to create complex validation workflows including multiple witnesses and the option to comment on approval or rejection actions.
