Signature Templates

Create a "template" solution for a system wide signature using variables. For example, Administrators could set a template that looked like this:


<BR /><CELL_PHONE> | <COMPANY_PHONE_NUMBER> | <WEB_SITE> <BR /><COMPANY_LOGO> <BR /><BR />Information such as names, titles, and cell phones could be pulled from the GroupWise account. Common information such as company phone number, web site, and company logo could be pulled from a common area. Font settings would need to be defined by the administrator.</COMPANY_LOGO></WEB_SITE></COMPANY_PHONE_NUMBER></CELL_PHONE>

Vertigo is an good idea, but why by an second product? All the informations are already in the system.

Yeah, needing a second product is the wrong route here. Or atleast a API that makes it easy to add signatures that are not plaintext only would be nice.

We finally decided to implement email signature standards company wide. A template like this would be great! Save us a lot of hassle. Having html formatting settings specified by the administrator is very important. I'm not sure if the creator of this request was wanting this to be applied to Global Signatures or not, but we tried using global signatures first and ran into problems with it. Just not enough flexibility. I think it would be great if we could apply templates to the users own signatures. When they go to create a signature, they would select one from the administrator defined templates. Let admins specify whether users can create custom signatures or only choose the predefined templates or both.

The templating could also be useful for the vacation rule. When you setup the response text to external mails there should be tags like and with localization or formaters like

Temples, variables and manualy editing the html code in global and personal signatures

Create the global signature based on a template with LDAP references should not be the problem by now - GroupWise 2014 is connected to a LDAP server in in the majority of installations (eDir/AD/..) so all information should be there.

To deploy a Company Identity, a global Signature with template and variables (from LDAP/AD or GW) is a must and a outstanding Feature of Groupwise. I hope this will be in the next ServicePack/Release! Please think at the vakationrule too.
