  1. Scroll down to Rating placeholders. Fill the available fields in the Team member section with CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365 placeholders, not actual user information e.g. use the {E-mail} placeholder in the Email address field, and {First name} and {Last name} placeholders for the corresponding fields (Fig. 6., item 1). By using placeholders in the email signature template, you will be able to use it for all your senders. Additionally, each rating will be assigned to a specific sender.

  2. Once you add the placeholders, scroll back up and click the Generate embed code button (Fig. 7.).

The next step is to add the customer satisfaction survey to your company emails. The example below demonstrates how to add a customer satisfaction survey to each email sent by any member of the Customer Service team:

  1. Launch the Manage Signatures App, create a new rule, and enter its name in the Overview tab (Fig. 9.).

Access and analyze customer satisfaction reports

After you have created and deployed the one-click CSAT survey in CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365, new reviews should start flowing in. To learn more about your customers’ experience, view the reports available in the Simplesat panel. Simplesat offers a variety of reports for each survey you create. To access the reports, go to and choose the customer satisfaction survey you used in your email signatures.

Below (Fig. 16.), you can see a few of the available reports. The kind of data available in reports depends on the placeholders you have defined while creating the survey. Since only the sender’s email placeholder was used in this example, each review is assigned to an employee’s email address.
