Centrally add email signatures and disclaimers to Google Apps for Business mail

googlemail-64If you are a cloud email admin who manages lots of Gmail users on your Google Apps for Business account, you know that the service is fairly rough around the edges when it comes to email signatures. It’s pretty simple for end-users to set up a signature when they are logged in to their account, but if you had to create a global disclaimer for the entire company, or at least to centrally unify the signature for selected departments or users, Google Apps won’t help you here.

This need may sound weird, but it’s crucial to append a standardized legal note to all outgoing messages in your firm. If you also care about your corporate identity, it might be a good idea to make sure your employees’ signatures correspond with it and look professional. This also doesn’t have to mean they can’t be personalized.

CodeTwo Email Signatures will help you quickly compose a template with Active Directory variables, which can be used as your automatic, company-wide signature for all your Gmail users. No HTML experience is required to do it. If you know how to use a word processor, this program has you covered.

Simply install the program on any computer in your domain (it doesn’t have to be a server) and launch it.

Last but not least, you will need to bind your Active Directory users with your Gmail users.

All set! If you don’t believe it’s already working – simply log in to your Google Apps email account and click Compose to see that your new signature is already there! Your end-users have the same signature, with their own personal information already set up too.

  1. How do I pust personalized images in signatures? 1 more thing. What if I want to omit a particular field in some of the sigatures. For eg:

    John Doe
    101, 1st ST NW
    john.doe@abcc.com

    and

    Jane Doe
    jane.doe@abcc.com

    • Hi James. Your users should see the changes right away, however sometimes it may take some time for the settings to be applied to Google servers. If you don’t see the signatures immediately just wait a few minutes and check again. If still no joy, just drop us a line, we will do all our best to help you.
