Easier attribute management

You can also manage your users’ contact data used in email signatures in an easier way. Our User attributes manager available at attributes.codetwo.com lets you quickly edit or bulk edit user details without the hassle of clicking through different admin centers, which can be time-consuming. The manager also allows you to create custom attributes that will be available to you in CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365 only. And if your AAD data is outdated, you can allow users to update their contact details.

What’s important, all the changes do not affect the original data in your Azure AD database. And if you want to restore the AAD data in your signatures, disclaimers or auto-replies, you can do it as well. Learn more
