Email signatures are a great way to add a touch of personalization to an email – most people use them, especially on work emails.
But can you have multiple email signatures in your Gmail account?
In March 2020, Gmail finally got around to adding this feature, so yes, it’s now possible to set up multiple email signatures in Gmail.
Better late than never! That being said, Right Inbox’s multiple email signature feature is far more intuitive than Google’s native feature.
Let’s take a look at why you’d want to set up multiple Gmail signatures and how you go about it.
Why Would You Want Multiple Signatures in Gmail?
There are many reasons why you might want to use multiple signatures in Gmail. Here are some of the most common:
- It’s always important to keep your business emails and your personal emails separate, so it’s a good idea to have a less formal signature for your personal emails.
- As remote work becomes more popular worldwide, you may have to communicate in different languages. It makes sense to have different signatures based on the language of the person that you’re emailing.
- You may want different signatures depending on what team you’re communicating with within your business.
- If you work in sales, PR, or digital outreach, it isn’t uncommon to have more than one email signature in order to help you land more deals or coverage.
