  • Email Signature

    Here are guidelines for creating a custom email signature in The New School Google Apps system. Please note that these directions are will only work within the desktop Gmail environment and will be different for desktop email clients such as Outlook, Apple Mail, etc.

    Creating your Gmail Signature

    There are two versions of the custom email signature. One uses the New School logo. The other can include any of our college or school logos. Please choose the template that is most appropriate for your needs.

    Standard New School Signature

    1. Open Gmail.
    2. Click on the cog icon in the top right of the Gmail window and select "Settings."
    3. Scroll down the "General" tab, down to the "Signature" area.
    4. Copy the "New School Logo Starter Email Signature" into memory by either clicking anywhere on the signature page and using "Select All" or control-a (Windows) or command-a (Mac). from the edit menu, followed by "Copy" or control-c (Windows) or command-c (Mac).
    5. Delete your existing Signature completely and paste the starter signature text and make the required changes to make it unique to you. Please take care to keep everything UPPERCASE, with the exception of the email address.
    6. When editing any active link (email, twitter, URL) use the build in Google Tool that allows you to "Change" the link. Remember to change both the way the link looks and where it goes (Hint: These are the same ).
    7. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Save."

    Note: The use of a @twittername is optional. Simply delete the line if not needed.

    College and School Signature

    1. Open Gmail.
    2. Click on the cog icon in the top right of the Gmail window and select "Settings."
    3. Scroll down the "General" tab, down to the "Signature" area.
    4. Copy the "College and School Logo Starter Email Signature" into memory by either clicking anywhere on the signature page and using "Select All" or control-a (Windows) or command-a (Mac). from the edit menu, followed by "Copy" or control-c (Windows) or command-c (Mac).
    5. Delete your existing Signature completely and paste the starter signature text and make the required changes to make it unique to you. Please take care to keep everything UPPERCASE, with the exception of the email address.
    6. When editing any active link (email, twitter, URL) use the build in Google Tool that allows you to "Change" the link. Remember to change both the way the link looks and where it goes (Hint: These are the same ).
    7. Place you cursor directly after the last red URL and hit "Return" to bring your cursor to a new line.
    8. Click on the link in the sidebar for the required College or School logo which will open a new window.
    9. Go to that window and save the image image to your computer using the "File >> Save File As" or by Right-Clicking on the logo and selecting "Save Image As".
    10. Click on the "Insert Image" button in the signature tool bar and then select the "Upload" tab, then click on the blue button "Select a file from your computer", using the logo that you saved to your computer in Step 9.
    11. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Save."

    Your signature should now appear at the bottom of any new email message created within the new Google Apps email system.
