How to configure Sigsync connectors?

Connectors function as a bridge between the sender and receiver. Connector Configuration creates an outbound and inbound Exchange Online connector for the user's tenant to route the flow of emails through the Sigsync service. Connectors Configuration is necessary when adding Office 365 email signatures and disclaimers in the server side mode. However, the client side mode of adding signatures does not require the configuration of the connectors as the email signatures are added on the fly while composing.

Sigsync uses Microsoft OAuth 2.0 and TLS encryption for authentication. It will never ask the user's credentials and it redirects to Microsoft sign in page for authentication. No user's Office 365 credentials will be stored on Sigsync or any other third-party servers. Know More...

Enter the copied code in the space provided and sign in as a global admin of your Office 365 tenant. On successful sign in, close the sign-in page and return to Sigsync Dashboard. You will be automatically taken to the next step.

Enter the code

Authorization is required to create connectors and rules automatically. Sigsync uses secure OAuth 2.0 authentication. Your credentials are not used or stored anywhere.

Step 5: Sigsync provides options to select signatures to a specific group(s) or to all the users.

This is helpful in avoiding excessive usage of license. That is, Sigsync will consume one license for each user’s emails that are processed through Sigsync service. You can use this option and set signatures to the required groups to limit the license usage as per your requirement.


Enable email signature to all the groups / users: Select this option to enable signatures to all the users in your Active Directory.

Note: To Add or Remove groups in future, you can reconfigure the connectors and select the required groups.
