Learn how to have professional organisation-wide signatures with Office 365, while you have a coffee

Many organisations I work with still use Outlook as the place where signatures are applied. The problem with this approach is that approximately 40% of emails are done on mobile devices these days – in which case no signature is applied.

While Teams and Yammer provide us a way to communicate without email, sometimes we still need to connect the conversation threads together.

Already in Teams we can surface Yammer threads, and in both products we can send emails in to become a thread in those platforms.

The problem is that when sending an email in to Teams or Yammer the entire content of the email goes across. This is most annoying when any email you create attaches an email signature – which generally occurs in Outlook be it desktop, mobile or web.
