How to recreate your signature in FocalScope
Monday, December 5, 2016 6:33 AM




When moving from another email client to FocalScope, you may wish to keep your email signature as it appeared in the previous system. FocalScope makes it easy to recreate your HTML signature(s) with raw HTML editing options build into the FocalScope UI.

The raw HTML editing feature in FocalScope allows users to preserve the exact style and formatting of documents that were created in 3rd party HTML markup tools. These documents can then be transferred to FocalScope without any change in their appearance. Transferring a corporate signature is a perfect example of this and is used as the example in this article.
