Give everyone a company signature or default footer text
You can add the same signature or message to everyone's emails in these ways:
  • Give everyone a default signature—Use the Gmail API to apply the same signature to everyone's settings. The signature appears when users open their compose window. Users can replace or update it if they want. For details, go to Managing signatures.

  • Add a footer to the end of outgoing messages—You can automatically add a text footer to the end of all outgoing mail. Add text for legal compliance, company promotions, or a standard signature. Users don't see the message when they're writing an email. And, they can't change or remove it. For details, go to Add a standard footer to users' outbound messages.
