How to setup Connectors configuration?

Connectors Configuration is creating an outbound and inbound Exchange Online connector for user's tenant to route the flow of user Office emails through Sigsync service. Connectors configuration is necessary as it required to add email signatures and disclaimer to user's Office 365 emails.

Sigsync uses Microsoft OAuth 2.0 and TLS encryption for authentication. It will never ask users 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

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 6: Now, if you need signature for all users then select all users or create a group which contains only the users who need email signatures. Make sure you have selected only the users you want to have signatures since, each user’s emails that are processed by Sigsync will consume 1 license. Its better to avoid excessive usage of licenses by selecting users and making a group for those selected users who need email signatures.

You can select 'Add Email Signatures to all the users' for all users to have signature as shown below.
