How do I add a link to my email signature?

Knowledge Article Number 000003224
Description

Scenario:

You want a link in your email signature that does not begin with the general 'http://' or 'www.'. Instead you want the link to appear as words that are highlighted to be clicked on and direct you to a specific URL/website.

Resolution

Go to: Setup | Personal Setup | Email | My Email Settings

- Enter the path to the website in the Signature box enclosed in HTML tags as follows


<a href="enter website address here">Enter words that display for link here</a>


For example:
<a href="http://login.salesforce.com">Link to Salesforce Login</a>

Click Save.

**NOTE** If the link does not show, type the coding into the box rather than copying/pasting as sometimes extra characters can get attached with the cut and paste process.

 

When sending an email from Salesforce, you need to make sure the emails are in HTML format.
On the web page to write an email (after buttons "send an email"), locate the section "Email Format". It's at the top of the page, on the right near the "To" field.
- If it says "HTML", you are ok.
- If it says "Text-Only", you need to click on "Switch to HTML".

If you send an email in "Text-Only" with the modified signature, the logo will not appear, and the signature will include as <a href="enter website address here">Enter words that display for link here</a> instead of the highlighted words that click to the website.
