Gmail - Profile Picture and Signature


There are a few things you need in your Gmail account, an updated profile picture, and email signature. Both are super simple to update in a matter of seconds.

Signature
Your email signature must contain:

  • Your name.
  • What your teach/title.
  • Where you teach.
  • Address of that building.
  • Phone number and extension.
  • Links to the socials you use.
Examples:
Doug Barton
Instructional Technology Specialist
Lindbergh Schools
314.729.2400 x4614

     Jana Parker Ed.D
     Principal Long Elementary
     314-729-2400, Ext. 5400


Colin Davitt
Instructional Technology
Lindbergh Schools
9350 Sappington Rd.
St. Louis, MO 63126
314.729.2400 ext. 4622
Instructional Technology - Blog Facebook

Creating/Updating 
Open Gmail.
1. Click the gear icon in the upper right.
2. Click Settings.

Scroll down to find the signature box.

1. Click the bottom button to enable the signature.
2. Similar text toolbar that you might find in Google Docs.
3. I personally put a space here to help make the signature stand out from the body of the email.
4. Add the necessary information.
5. I recommend clicking this. It will keep your signature at the top of the emails that are a reply to a reply to a reply. Watch this video for a demonstration

Scroll to the very bottom and click save.
If you do not click save your signiutre will not be saved.

Profile Picture
It can be really hard to rememeber who people are from time to time, it is wicked nice to put a face to a name. Adding your profile picture is just a handful of clicks.

Start by taking a selfie or finding a picture that you want to use. Save it to a place you can quickly find.

Open Gmail.
1. Click on the profile picture in the upper right.
2. Click the picture you want to change.


Find the picture you want to use.

1. Adjust.
2. Set as profile photo.

Now my old-timey photo has been replaced!
