Central deployment of the signature preview add-in
CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365 Add-in can be easily deployed to all users in an Office 365 organization via the Exchange admin center. In this article you will find step-by-step guidelines for Office 365 administrators.
To perform centralized deployment, you need to be assigned the Exchange administrator role. Learn more about admin roles in Office 365
First, log in to Exchange admin center (EAC). On the dashboard, click add-ins as shown in Fig. 1. You can also access add-in settings from the organization tab on the left menu.
Click the plus (+) button and select Add from URL (Fig. 2.).
In the pop-up window that appears, enter the following address:
- https://emailsignatures365-addin.codetwo.com/InstallApp - if you use the global version of the software
- https://emailsignatures365-addin.codetwo.de/InstallApp - if you use the Office 365 Germany version of the software
Make sure to provide the URL for your version of the software. Otherwise, signature previewing will not work.
Click Install. When the installation is completed, CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365 Add-in will be shown on the add-ins list (Fig. 3.). Note that by default, the new add-in is disabled.
To enable the add-in, you need to double-click it or use the edit (pencil icon) button (Fig. 4.) and choose an option that best matches your preferences.
If you enable the add-in in EAC, it might take a while (even 24 hours) for the add-in to be deployed to users in your Office 365 tenant.
If you choose the Optional, disabled by default option (Fig. 4.), each Office 365 user will have to turn on the add-in manually.
