Managing one professional email signature is time-consuming, but managing a medium or large team’s signatures is difficult. Employees leave, get promoted, or are introduced to businesses often. Working to manage these signatures should be the responsibility of a manager.


Creating brand cohesion with a business email signature is possible. We’re going to show you how to create a professional email signature and deploy it rapidly using Bybrand’s four main integrations. Google Sheets, Google Workspace, Freshdesk, or Asana;

4 Ways to Integrate a Professional Email Signature Today

With your email signature, you can inform your contacts about your products, services, and the way they should contact you. At Bybrand, we do not just create email signatures. We provide you with an intelligent and flexible approach to integrating them across multiple channels.

1. Using Google Sheets Integration

Google Sheets is used by hundreds of millions of people each month. An IT manager, or team lead, can save time and resources by:


  • Creating an employee email signature spreadsheet in Google Sheets
  • Adding in the employee by line:
    • Name
    • Position
    • Phone
    • Email
    • Other information
  • Copying the public link for the sheet
  • Activating the Google Sheets integration in Bybrand by adding the copied link
  • Creating a department name
  • Importing data from Google Sheets
  • Associating a template with the email signature
  • Editing the template to use the proper placeholders
  • Saving.


With the use of placeholders or the first row of the spreadsheet, it’s fast and easy to use one professional email signature across teams or an entire business with our professional email signature maker.


Example:

You can add new employees at any time, sync the data and generate a business email signature effortlessly.


If you run into any problems following the steps above, you may find our video tutorial to be more helpful:

If you’re tired of using a CSV file to create email signatures and already use Google Sheets, you’ll find this method of creating and deploying email signatures to be fast and efficient. However, if you’re not using Sheets, we have other methods that will work, too.

2. Google Workspace users

Bybrand’s integration with Google Workspace allows you to create and deploy a simple professional email signature across your entire company. We've made it as easy as possible to standardize email communications by:


  • Registering for an account with Bybrand or signing into an existing account

  • Creating a template on the main dashboard

  • Navigating to the “integrations” tab on the dashboard

  • Integrating G Suite by alerting the G Suite administrator of the email and domain

  • Activating the integration

  • Opening your G Suite

  • Clicking on Apps > Google WorkSpace Marketplace apps

  • Adding Bybrand by searching for the app by name

  • Following through with the prompt to finish the integration.


Now, you can go back to Bybrand and follow these steps:


  • Click on the Manage tab within Integrations
  • Try and Load users
  • Create a department to generate email signatures automatically
  • Click on the import button
  • Choose which users to import
  • Associate an email signature for the department
  • Edit the email signature to add in placeholders and customize the signature
  • Save.


The next step is to update the email signature for each specific user or batch and update all signatures at once.


If you did everything right, you’d have a company-wide email signature that integrates with Google Workspace and Gmail. You can watch our entire tutorial on integrating with Google Workspace below:

Utilizing Google Workspace, you can create and deploy email signatures for your business if you use Gmail. However, if your team doesn’t use Gmail or Google Workspace, we have other integration options that may work just as well.

3. Freshdesk help desk agents

If you’re one of the over 50,000 companies that use Freshdesk, we’ve made it simple to standardize your agents’ email communications. Support managers can easily use rich HTML email signatures to improve customer experience and integrate using Bybrand and Freshdesk.


We've made it easy to get started using the following steps:


  • Register for Bybrand or log into your account if you have one already
  • Navigate to the Dashboard and click the “Add an integration” icon
  • Connect Freshdesk by following the prompts on the screen
  • Go to the Freshdesk Admin panel
  • Click on Profile settings
  • Copy the API key
  • Paste the API key into Bybrand
  • Click on manage and try loading the first agents.


If everything is successful, your agents will be loaded. You can then create an individual email signature or use the department signature template, as we’ve done with Google Sheets and Workspace.
