Creating a CodeTwo Admin Panel account
CodeTwo Admin Panel is a web-based component of CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365. The Admin Panel is where you can add and configure your organization's Microsoft 365 (Office 365) tenant(s) and perform administrative tasks: manage the tenant's subscription and payment-related settings, grant access to the Admin Panel account to other admins, assign users to manage email signatures, and more.
Signature management is done via a separate component and does not require access to CodeTwo Admin Panel. Before you start working with email signatures, however, you first need to configure the Admin Panel account for your organization and register your tenant, as explained in this article and the ones that follow.
When creating a new account to log in with, you can use an existing Microsoft account or any other email address (Fig. 2.).
If you decide to create a dedicated CodeTwo Admin Panel account (the Email and password login type), you need to fill in a sign up (registration) form, as shown in Fig. 3. You do not need to fill the Contact email address field with the credentials of your Microsoft 365 tenant's admin. It can be any valid email address you would like to use to log in to CodeTwo Admin Panel. The Microsoft 365 admin credentials will be required later on, when adding a tenant. After you click the Create account button, we will send you an email with an activation link to complete the registration.
You can change your login type from Email and password to Microsoft account (but not the other way around) at any time on the account management pages in the Admin Panel. Learn more
Important: A user who creates a new Admin Panel account for their organization automatically becomes the Admin Panel owner of that account. Admin Panel owners can invite other users to join their organization's Admin Panel account as admins (see this article to learn how to do so), allowing them to perform management tasks on tenants and subscriptions. However, you cannot invite other admins when using the Email and password login type. Learn more about admin roles in CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365
Once you select an account and log in to the Admin Panel, you will land on the Dashboard tab (Fig. 4.). From here, you can supervise various sections of the Admin Panel and quickly access different management options. See this article for a quick overview of the CodeTwo Admin Panel.
To continue configuring the software in Microsoft 365, you need to register your tenant in the Admin Panel.
