CodeTwo applications in Microsoft 365 and Azure Active Directory (Microsoft Entra)

Problem:

You have deployed CodeTwo Email Signatures 365 in your organization. Upon reviewing your settings in the Microsoft 365 admin center and the Microsoft Entra admin center, you notice that there is a number of different CodeTwo apps listed there. You would like to learn more about them: when they are created, for what purpose they are used, etc.

Solution:

During the deployment of CodeTwo Email Signatures 365, you need to configure various components of the software and grant a number of permissions. All these actions are reflected in Microsoft 365, both on the Integrated apps page in the Microsoft 365 admin center and on the Enterprise applications page in the Microsoft Entra admin center.

By using CodeTwo Email Signatures 365, you can be sure that your data and the data of your users is completely safe. Our software is designed to meet the highest security, availability and compliance standards. In fact, it is the most secure email signature solution (recommended by Microsoft) and the only one developed in compliance with both ISO/IEC 27001 (information security) and ISO/IEC 27018 (personal data protection in the cloud). It is also protected with a 4-layer security system we’ve been developing for years.

(also CodeTwo Signatures*)

To preview cloud (server-side) signatures or automatically add an Outlook (client-side) signature in Outlook and OWA. Optional component

On deploying the modern CodeTwo Signatures Web Add-in for Outlook in the Microsoft 365 admin center (AppSource) 

* If you see CodeTwo Signatures instead of CodeTwo for Outlook on the Integrated apps page, it means you deployed the Web Add-in by providing a link to its manifest file. In case the manifest file changes in the future, the Web Add-in will continue to work, but it will no longer get automatic updates. Because of that, it is recommended to remove the Web Add-in from your Microsoft 365 tenant and deploy it again from the AppSource.

The preview add-in is now deprecated. Consider switching to the modern CodeTwo Signatures Web Add-in for Outlook & OWA that works in all signature modes, is easier to deploy and manage, and will be getting even more features in the future. Learn more

Our service will never ask you to grant more permissions that necessary to perform its current task (e.g. sign in to CodeTwo Admin Panel, allow CodeTwo service to retrieve your users’ data, etc.). To be able to use CodeTwo Email Signatures 365, you will need to grant consent to permissions required by all mandatory components. You will be asked to grant consent to optional components only if you decide to use (enable) them.
