Stamping Launch Guide - Everything You Need to Know

  • PDF

Article summary


Stamping appends a signature to all emails, after the email is sent. Stamping will only add a signature when a plain text signature block is not already present in the body of the email

Deployment Pre-Requisites

  • On launch day, your System Admin adds users to an access control group in Azure AD/Google Workplace (commonly named "Opensense Stamping"). This activates email signatures for the specified users
  • Coordinate deployment time and date with your IT Department

Deployment Tips and Best Practices

  • Best day to deploy: ANY day, off-peak email hours
  • Adding users to the stamping group may take time to fully adjust, though it typically happens much quicker. This would occur on your email service provider side, and is unrelated to Opensense
  • Consider adding test users to confirm how long it takes in your environment

End User Experience

  • Employees will need to remove their old signature from their devices if they had one (otherwise, you run the risk of having two email signatures)
  • Upon deployment, emails sent from their corporate email address(es) will have the Opensense signature "stamped" onto the email after the email is sent
  • No signature will be visible in the body of sent emails

Internal Launch Communications

Properly communicating the Opensense launch can make the difference between receiving a few support emails, or way more than necessary if it's done poorly. To make it as easy as possible for you to take flight, here's an email example to get you started with your launch communications!

This email template was submitted with love by one of our customers who have successfully launched their email signatures! It's a great place to start, but remember that your email communication should be customized to your unique use case before sending out. This is the best time to prevent confusion for the end user. Additionally, we have highlighted any items that need to be personalized before sending out.

Launch communications should be sent 1-3 days before the day of launch. Bonus points for showcasing your new company signature even sooner than that on an all hands meeting!
If you have a launch communication email that you are proud of feel free to send it to your customer success manager so we can add it onto our knowledge base to help others!

Email Template

All Company Employees


Dear Team,

In an effort to present a stronger unified brand to our customers, we will be implementing a standardized email signature for all employees. Using a service called Opensense, the marketing team will now centrally manage the style and format of email signatures while employee contact information will be synced from our company directory. This means your email signature on all emails from any device will be beautiful and up to date with all of the latest messaging, and best of all there is very little required on your end!

Highlights of the new email signature block are:

We ask that you help us in this facet of our launch by taking the following steps -

  • Delete your email signature in Outlook. Do this by clicking on Signature on the tool bar of an individual email, select Delete Signature
  • Delete your email signature on any devices you're sending emails from

Once Opensense is activated, you will not see your email signature when you hit Send, but it will be added automatically along with any current featured banner ad. Once we have launched, you can send yourself a test email to your personal email or a colleague to check it out, as it will not show up when composing an email or in your sent emails.

If you have any questions with these steps, please give me a call at 123-456-6789 or send me an email at

Support requests tend to subside after a week or so from launch

Placement Issues

Rarely, customers will encounter placement issues, where the stamped signature may be applied at the footer of the email thread instead of in the last message sent. If you encounter this or notice the signature is being stamped on somewhere it shouldn't be, please follow this guide for placement issues.
