    do you ever do this? and if you do, what do you write on the diad signature pad?

    as for me, if it's sig. req. they must sign the diad in my presence, nothing else

    I have not done it. Pretty sure there have been posters here looking for advice after being fired for doing same. They got their jobs back, but the message is pretty loud and pretty clear.

    Depends on how well I know the person: wife, son, brother, you get the idea.

    Nope. If someone doesn't sign in person they don't get their package. It's the rules and I'm good at following these.

    signature required means in my presence. This is why I write "VOID" on the signature section on the back of the delivery notice. Every time.

    I do the same and people still sign on top of "void." Lol

    That's an Integrity issue that I never get involved in either....

    I also write "In person" in the opening next to where it says "the center required a signature at time of delivery" and circle it.

    That's when they hand write a note to leave it on the back porch and to call Jenny at 867-5309.

    Officially, it is called forging a legal document, a potentially criminal offense.

    So you are saying if the consignee signs the del. notice you wont leave the package and hit SDN? Maybe I am missing something but that is done in my center all the time. You take the signed del. notice with you and turn it in with your log.

    If the package is signature required, SDN will not work in the diad.

    'Signature Required' means an actual signature by an actual person. Period.

    That's only used when the DIAD doesn't require a signature imbedded in the tracking number.

    Signed delivery notices are useful in areas where signatures are generally required, such as apartments and commercial stops. But they are useless when packages are specifically designated sig reqd.

    Customers who don't get their sig req'd packages due to not being home can bitch and moan all they want, but their problem is with the shipper who demanded the signature, not with UPS.
