Inserting a personalized URL into the email signature

Inserting a personalized URL into the email signature can be useful if you would like to include a link to the sender’s individual bio or LinkedIn profile. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Include the user's LinkedIn URL in an Active Directory Custom Attribute, for instance.

2. Add the Custom Attribute merge field in Policy Patrol:

  • In the Policy Patrol Administration console, go to Settings > Templates.
  • Click on Directory fields under ‘Options’.
  • In Display name enter the Name as you would like it to appear in the list of merge fields, for instance LinkedIn URL.
  • Under Directory code, enter the Active Directory Attribute name as listed in ADSI Edit, for instance CustomAttribute9. Please note that this name is case sensitive. If you are not sure of the name you can check this in ADSI Edit (adsiedit.msc).

3. Insert the custom URL field into the email disclaimer template:

  • In the Policy Patrol Administration console, go to Settings > Templates 
  • Open up your Disclaimer Template.
  • In the HTML tab of the Disclaimer Template, click on HTML Source.
  • In the source, enter one of the options below. Note that in the examples, %[]LinkedInURL[]% is the merge field that contains the user's LinkedInURL. 

If a customer reports that %[{LinkedIn}]LinkedInURL[]% option doesn't work anymore syntax is not working, please use the following syntax : 

 %[{le=LinkedIn}]LinkedInURL[]%
