Create and Use multiple signatures in Gmail

  • Most of us wear multiple hats, perform different roles and prefer to use a Gmail signature respective to that specific role.

  • Like me, you might have been using Canned responses or 3rd party plugins to create and use multiple Gmail signatures, but no more with the launch of this new Gmail feature.

  • Gmail and Google Workspace users can now create and use multiple signatures in Gmail while composing new emails or replying to emails, let me show you how to use this feature.

Go to and enter your Gmail email address to login.

Login to Gmail - enter your user name

Go to and enter your Gmail password to login.

Click on the gear icon on top right and then click on settings as shown in the screenshot below.

Click on Gmail Settings

Go to General tab and scroll down to find “Signature”.

Click on General Tab

Click on “Create new” to create your new Gmail signature.

Name your Gmail signature (better to make it contextual so it becomes easy for you to identify later it by name if you have multiple signatures)

Click on “Create new” again to create your second Gmail signature.

  • You can also enable “Insert signature before quoted text in replies and remove the “-” – line that precedes it.

  • I would recommend you to enable it to make your replies clean, as shown in the screenshot below.
