Email signature management – sounds a bit technical. Simply speaking, it is a perfect way to make sure every email sent outside the company is professionally branded and gets just the right promotional content. The problem is that corporate identity, marketing campaigns, promotional banners – those aspects are typically handled by the marketing team. At the same time, Office 365 management, by default, is an IT-handled task. Global email signatures fall into this category. How is this a problem? Normally, central email signature management means that either:
- The IT department gains additional responsibilities. Not only can it overburden IT, but it also means that marketing needs to outsource their own projects, instead of doing them on their own.
- Marketing needs to get additional permissions to the Office 365 tenant. This option might be even worse because it creates a considerable compliance risk.

The solution is defining access rights to the Office 365 email signature tool. But before showing you how it should be done, I’ll first show you how the Office 365 signature management looks like when the problematic, native, approach is taken.
