Adding an Inbox Signature

Why create an email signature in QuickMail?

Signatures in Quickmail are created on a per-Inbox basis, so no matter which Inbox is used, QuickMail will use the appropriate signature when sending the message.

Signatures in QuickMail also let you update your signature in one place.

That means you don’t need to update the email steps in all your campaigns when changing/updating your contact information, for example.

Aside from being able to add an inbox signature to an email campaign, the signature attribute is convenient when you’ve set up inbox rotation on your campaigns.

(Inbox rotation is assigning multiple inboxes to a campaign.) 

If you don't use the signature attribute and just add the signature to the body, then the email signatures will be static.

Using the signature attribute allows you to match the signature with the inbox being used to send the emails.

How to create a signature?

There are two ways to create an email signature:

1. Single Inbox

 Head to the Settings section, and then click on the Inboxes tab. There, you'll see a list of Inboxes available in the account.
Click the inbox you're adding a signature to then go to the Sending tab.
From the sending tab, just scroll down to Signature section -> create your signature -> Save changes.

What is the signature attribute?

To add the signature attribute, you can type {{inbox.signature}} on the email body or click Attributes.
Clicking the "Attributes" button will open the attributes window. From the attributes window, click "Signature" under Inbox heading.

Pro tip: The Attributes under the Inbox heading can also insert other inbox-specific attributes, like the name of the Inbox owner, their email address, or a specific Reply-to address.

How to create an HTML signature?

At the moment, we don't support HTML pasted on the inbox signature. However, the current workaround is to create a custom attribute and paste the HTML as the default value.

To create a custom attribute by heading to the Prospects page -> Attributes -> Create New Attributes.

Then, name your custom attribute and paste the HTML code as the default value.

Warning: The custom attribute name should only contain alphanumeric characters, as well as - and _.
Creating a custom attribute name that has a space will lead to an error.

Note: Make sure that the HTML code is finalized before pasting it as a default value of the custom attribute.
The custom attribute value bar is a one-liner so it's impossible to edit an HTML code from it easily.

After creating the custom attribute, go to any email step and click the attributes button on the email editor.

From the attribute window, look for the custom attribute for the signature under the Prospect column.
In this case, I named my custom signature HTML_signature.

Click that and copy the custom attribute code.

Then, head to the sending settings of the inbox.

On the signature editor, paste the custom attribute and click Save.

Moving forward, as long as the {{inbox.signature}} attribute is added to an email step, emails received by prospects will include the custom HTML signature.
