Most of us have branded email signatures for our official email IDs in the email clients such as Outlook or Gmail. Even Salesforce provides a feature to add your Email Signature to personalize emails. Moreover, you will be delighted to know that you can make your signature visually appealing in Salesforce also just like other email clients. It’s a simple two-step process to add an image to an email signature in Salesforce. First, you upload the image in Files and then add the image URL to your email signature. That’s it.
