Individual deployment of the signature preview add-in

CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365 Add-in can also be deployed individually by Office 365 users. To install it, each user needs to follow the steps described in this article. The deployment differs slightly depending on the user interface of your Outlook on the web:

The new Outlook on the web (updated UI)

To start the deployment, log in to Office 365 and open Outlook. If your Outlook UI looks as shown in Fig. 1., then you use the new user interface (if it looks different, see this section). To install the CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365 Add-in in the new Outlook, you need to open the message compose mode by creating a new message or replying to an existing one. In the compose window, expand the bottom menu (as shown in Fig. 1.) and click Get Add-ins.

Info

The signature preview add-in is deployed per Office 365 user, not per machine, so it will automatically appear in both Outlook and Outlook on the web (soon also on mobile clients).
