**This article is intended for employees of Commonwealth//McCann.**

These instructions walk you through creating and adding your new Commonwealth//McCann signature in Outlook (Mac or PC) and Apple Mail (Mac).  

Important: the consistent appearance of your signature with the rest of the agency is paramount. Please ensure that your signature matches the following diagram as closely as possible:


The first step is to download the Email Signature Template document (download located at the bottom of this page), which you will open up in Microsoft Word. You'll need to edit the template to include your information: your name, job title, desk phone number "p", and mobile phone number, "m." If you were not issued a desk phone number, you can remove that section; the same applies if you do not wish to include your mobile number in your signature. When you've got the signature edited with your info, select the whole thing and copy it. Once you have copied your signature, toggle over to Outlook (or Apple Mail) and follow the appropriate instructions below!

Microsoft Outlook 2016 (Mac)

1. From the Outlook menu (next to the Apple menu), choose Preferences, then Signatures in the preferences window.

2. Click the + button to create a new signature, and give it a meaningful name (such as "Commonwealth").


3. Delete the pre-filled information in your new signature, then paste in your signature. 


4. You should see a clipboard icon in the lower right corner of the section that you pasted. Click this and select "Keep Source Formatting".


5. At the bottom of the window, under Choose Default Signatures, select your signature from the drop down menu for New Messages and Replies/forwards.
