New: Delegate email signature management rights in CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365

CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365 has gained a new highly demanded feature: ’Manage Signatures App users’. This functionality is now available in all geolocations. Office 365 administrators can now easily delegate email signature management tasks to someone else. Thanks to that, you can make the email signature management workflow much easier. Here are some examples of how you can use it:

  • Delegate all email signature management tasks to the marketing department. They will be in charge of choosing the right email signature banner and designing the signature template. You can also add legal department, so that they can make sure that every outbound email gets the right disclaimer and all the company information it requires.
  • Chose specific people to manage email signatures in your company. As a global admin, you will also have access to the Manage Signatures App. You can ask other users to save new email signature adding rules in turned off mode. As a result, it will allow you to verify if all conditions and exceptions to rules are well-configured.

How to set Office 365 custom attributes and use them in email signatures

Exchange Online, similarly to the on-premises Exchange, contains a number of attributes you can set for each user. Personal details, address, organization-related and contact information – it can all be set up in Office 365. While for some Office 365 organizations, standard AD fields are enough, sometimes there is a need for a non-standard field. That is where custom attributes come in handy. In the article, I show how to set up Office 365 custom attributes and what are the possible examples of use for them.

Let customers schedule meetings right from your email

Scheduling meetings might sometimes turn out to be quite problematic. While organizing a meeting with a colleague who works in the same office might be a no-brainer, the task may become much more complicated when you want to plan a presentation for a client. Imagine you have a busy week, with most of your calendar booked, and only a few open windows for new appointments. And the client who wants to book your time is 6 time zones away from you. Such situation is not a rare one and it often includes lengthy back and forth conversations. In effect, it might cause customers to give up in the unexpectedly complicated process. Fortunately, there is a way to let your customers schedule meetings quickly and easily.

Imagine you do not have to worry about time zones or other meetings you have. Instead, you allow any customer or colleague to use a simple button that is added automatically to your email signature.
