The signature creation process can be broken down into three stages:
- Add. When you add a new signature, you can choose to start with a blank canvas, or select a professional Exclaimer template as your start point for design.
- Design. Once you've added a signature, it's time to get creative! Your new signature is opened in our intuitive signature designer, where you can add/update signature content - simply drag and drop signature elements from the toolbox, into your design, then define properties to determine how that piece of content looks and behaves (for example, font attributes, alignment, borders, visibility, spacing, etc.). As you update your design, you can see how it will be displayed in email messages, using a handy preview pane.
The following step only applies if you have configured Exclaimer Cloud signature product - i.e. you are not trying it out in preview mode. If you are in preview mode, these next steps don't apply, since we haven't connected with your email services and user data yet.
- Apply and enable. Once you're happy with your signature design, you need to define the circumstances under which it will be applied. You can apply your signature to people/groups or to users with specified attributes. You can also choose to exclude certain messages based on message body text, and/or apply a time period for the signature to be used. Finally, when, when you're ready to release the signature for use, you must enable it.
Note: if your subscription is configured with Outlook Client for Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365, you can define Signature rules to determine if and how your signature is synchronized to users' local computers, for use in Microsoft Outlook.
