Email signature is like your business card. It contains important information such as your name, your position, the name of company you are representing, and of course contact information like email, phone numbers and social media accounts. Some users would like to have their email signature unique and different, something that you cannot achieve with templated signatures. You can do this by using Custom HTML. But thanks to Wisestamp, this is possible. In this article we are going to show you how it is done using Wisestamp.
To create a custom HTML signature using Wisestamp
- In your web browser, go to wisestamp.com, and hit login button located at the top right of the page.
- In the log-in form, fill in your email and password.
- In the WiseStamp page, look and click for ‘Use Custom HTML’ application in the Extras, located at the left side of the page.
- A modal box that contains the create HTML signature form will appear.
- Copy the HTML code and paste it on ‘Enter your custom HTML below’ field.
- If done, click on 'Add to signature' button.
Installing Wisestamp extension to Chrome
To make sure that the WiseStamp custom html signature can be added to your Outlook 365 OWA create email field, you have to install Wisestamp extension in your browser. Here I am going to show you how to do it on Google Chrome browser.
