πŸ“§ How to Create an Email Signature with Variables for Help Scout

Are you tired of sending support tickets with a plain and boring email signature? In this tutorial, we will show you how to create an email signature with variables for Help Scout. This way, your email will be sent with a rich email signature that includes your name, job title, and other important information. Let's get started!

Part 1: Activate the Integration with Help Scout

Before we start creating our email signature, we need to activate the integration with Help Scout. To do this, go to Buybrand and follow these steps:

1. Click on the "Integrations" tab.

2. Find Help Scout and click on "Activate."

3. Follow the instructions to connect your Help Scout account to Buybrand.

Once you have activated the integration, you will be able to use variables in your email signature.

Part 2: Create a New Email Signature

Now that we have activated the integration, we can start creating our email signature. Follow these steps:

1. Go to the Help Scout signature editor.

2. Click on "New Signature."

3. Choose a template that you like.

4. Add your name, job title, and other important information.

5. Use variables by typing two double curly brackets. For example, {{name}} will be replaced with your name.

You can also add links to your blog, knowledge base, social media, and even a button to open an online chat. However, keep in mind that a simple and clean email signature is usually more effective.

Part 3: Save and Use Your Email Signature

Once you have created your email signature, save it and click on "Paste in Email." This will copy the HTML code to your clipboard.

Next, go to the Help Scout panel and navigate to the shared inbox. Click on the gear icon and then on "Edit Mailbox." Scroll down to find the signature section and paste the HTML content into this area.

Finally, create a ticket to view the signature and see if the variables are being exchanged for real user data. If everything looks good, your email signature is ready to use!
