You can almost always use an e-signature instead of a physical signature. There are a few exceptions, mainly where a form prescribed by law for a certain agreement or other legal act that makes it impossible to e-sign. Examples include wills, and agreements about the sale of properties and houses. This may differ from region to region, so make sure to consult a lawyer when in doubt.
