Updating Elements on the Petition Creation and Signature Pages

Organization administrators can control a lot of the user experience for creating petitions and collecting signatures by navigating to "content" under "CMS." All of the following sections are included under the "petition" section of "content."

As a user starts a petition on the ControlShift site, help boxes will appear – as displayed below:

You can change the text in these help boxes by clicking "Petitions" under "Content" and choosing the appropriate "Form Help" field.

The "Phone Number Help" and "Phone Number Label" sections control the phone number field on the signature signing page. The phone number help section appears when a visitor clicks the question mark next to the signature field.
