Gmail Tip of the Week

Adding a signature to your outgoing mail

Let’s face it, just like our students, sometimes we get tired of putting our names on our papers or we just plain forget.  Fortunately, you can set up your Gmail to add your signature automatically to the end of all your messages, including important information like your first and last name, position, building, and other ways to contact you. If you don’t want to type in your information each time, try following these steps:

To add a personalized signature to your Gmail messages:

  1.  Open Gmail
  2.  At the top right, click the gear icon
  3.  Select Settings
  4.  Scroll down to the “Signature” section and enter the desired text in the box. We  recommend the following:
  • First and last name
  • Role or position
  • Building
  • Voicemail extension or building main number
  • Website or other helpful contact information
  1.  Optional: Format your text using the buttons above the text box
  2.  At the bottom of the page, click Save Changes
  3.  If you would like to add an image as part of your signature, click on the Image icon above the box and select the desired image. You may want to include your building mascot or the logo of the Olympia School District. Resize as necessary.  If you wish to include the logo,  you may access the image here.
