We're announcing a change to the way we handle offline signatures for petitions that are included in a partnership.
In the past, signatures added manually using the offline signatures tool were not added to the partner's mailing list. Instead, these users would only receive updates about the individual petition.
Now, when offline signatures are added, they will automatically be included in the partner's mailing list. This behavior will occur regardless of whether the partnership is set up to automatically share online signatures or require an opt in for signers. Because of this change, you may want to update the signature disclaimer that you're using for your partnerships (this disclaimer is included on the offline signatures form).
We made this change after receiving feedback from a number of organizations; however, if you have offline signatures that you do not want to be added to a partner list, you can send us the signatures in CSV form and we can upload them for you.
