Confirm Multiple Packages With Signature

To require signature confirmation per package instead of per shipment, open the Menu Options > Shipping tab and enable the setting Use per-package signature confirmation, then restart Shipbridge.

For multi-package orders, the regular Signature Required check box on the order will be hidden. Instead, configure the signature from the main grid or use the Edit Packages (also available on Scan & Ship).
