CodeTwo first to bring the modern Signatures Web Add-in for Outlook & OWA to general availability

[Update]: This blog post was updated on June 17, 2021 to include information on Web Add-in’s availability in Monthly Enterprise Channel.

Today, as part of Microsoft Build 2021, we make our modern Signatures Web Add-in (co-engineered with Microsoft) generally available for Outlook for Windows and Outlook on the web / OWA (and soon also for Outlook for Mac). We were the first to introduce the new add-in back at Microsoft Ignite 2020, where our CEO co-hosted a session with the Microsoft Outlook Add-in Team, and world’s first to release the add-in in Beta Channel (Office Insider program). Now, CodeTwo continues to stay ahead of the curve by being the first email signature software vendor in the world to announce the general availability of the modern email signature Web Add-in!

As a reminder, the modern Signatures Web Add-in integrates seamlessly with user accounts in Outlook and adds signatures as they type an email. It can be deployed directly from Microsoft 365 admin center for all or selected users – there is nothing to install locally and no need to sign in to the add-in. See this article in the user’s manual to learn how to deploy the new Web Add-in in your Microsoft 365 organization.

At the moment, the add-in works with Outlook for Windows starting Version 2106 Build 14131.20360, available in Current Channel and Monthly Enterprise Channel. It will be also available in Semi-Annual Enterprise Channel shortly. Learn more about the supported versions of Outlook

How to use the modern signatures Web Add-in for Outlook and OWA

The Web Add-in requires CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365 to work in client-side or combo mode to add signatures in Outlook. You also need to configure client-side signature rules for your Outlook users in the signature management app first.

Once a user starts typing a message in Outlook, the signature is automatically inserted into the email body, according to the configured rules. To insert a different signature, a user simply needs to open the CodeTwo Signatures pane and click Use this signature below that signature.

  1. Lovely and nice feature How does it works when user has rights on multiple shared mailbox?

    What about licensing for shared mailbox depending on “Send as” or “Send on behalf of”?

  2. I wonder for users with multiple accounts on Outlook app. Will the signature change based on the ‘From’ address? This is the main reason I’m still sticking to server side signature only, not combo/client.

    • Yes, the signature will change automatically, based on the From address. In case you need more information about the add-in, don’t hesitate to contact our Customer Success team. They are available 24/5 and will be more than happy to assist you.

  3. Love this new feature! Are there any plans to add Recipients and Keywords as options for the Client-side signatures configuration? Those are very useful to us and would be a roadblock for implementing this at the moment.

    • We’re definitely planning to further improve the add-in and add new features! Stay tuned for the next updates.
