Sending, Receiving, and Requesting Signatures

 

The Signatures feature is where you can electronically sign your friend's yearbook with a personal message. And they can sign your yearbook!

Signatures must be added to custom pages if you want them printed in your yearbook. Here's how:

Adding Signatures to Custom Pages

Get started on your homepage. In the main area of your homepage scroll down to Get Yearbook Signed.

5. Are you sure you want to send this Signature?

You are responsible for the content of this message. Please make sure it is:  appropriate, would not hurt anyone's feelings, something your teacher/parents would approve of and reflects how you want to be remembered for all time in your friend's yearbook. If you have added a written message you will see this message.

If you are sure you want to send this Signature, select I Approve this Signature.

    I was trying to test the signature request, by sending from my son's page a request from my daughter (they both have customized pages). However, I did not get an email notifying me that there is a request. Also, My daughter sent a request to a couple of friends, but their moms did not get any email regarding it.

    Hi Niri - I just sent a Signature request from your daughter to your son. You should have received an email notification. Please make sure that everyone is checking their spam folders.

    Hi Niri - You need to make sure your notification for Receive Signatures is turned on. Here is an article about email notifications:

    This was the problem! I don't know why everything was OFF, but I hope that the rest of my school has this option on.
    Thanks!

    Hi Dwight - There is not a deadline for sending and requesting Signatures but they must be added to custom pages (if you want to do that) by the custom pages deadline set by the school. For your school the custom pages deadline is today 4/30/20.

    Hi Olivia - Signatures can only be added to custom pages for printing in your yearbook. Extra custom pages can be added if you need more room for the Signatures. Here are articles for 1. adding custom pages and 2. adding Signatures to custom pages:https://treering.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360015537591-Adding-Additional-Custom-Pages

    Hi. Today is our schools yearbook deadline. I’ve sent requests to Both of my kids teachers but all teachers are stating they have not received any requests. Also, for my younger son, I did not find any of his classmates to be an option to request a signature from. I’m trying to figure this out ASAP as these signatures will need to be added into their yearbooks TODAY.
