Creating a Gmail signature Thermometer

Step 1 – create your Gmail Embedded Thermometer

Follow our simple set up to create your Thermometer template.

We recommend enabling the “prompt for email” address option on the template setup.

When complete, add your links and icons to your Gmail signature(s) as shown below.

Step 2 – grab your icons

Click the “Generate embed code”.

You will then see the following pop up:

Enter your sender’s name and email address in Custom 1 and Custom 2.

Click “Generate Hyperlinks”.

To create your signature, follow the steps on the popup. We go through them below.

Step 3: Create your Gmail signature

Log into Gmail. Visit your “Settings” area.

Scroll down the General tab until you see the Signature area. From here, create your signature, using the elements from the embed popup. We recommend keeping both screens open, for easy pasting.

Add the Gold icon first of all. Click on “Insert Image”:

From your Section 2 of your Thermometer embed screen, copy the Gold image URL.
Select the “Web Address” tab in the Gmail screen and paste in the URL. The Gold image will appear.

Click “Select” at the bottom of the screen to confirm.

You now need to add a Tracking Link.
Go back into your Thermometer embed screen. Copy the Gold tracking link from Section 4:

Insert that hyperlink to the Gold star in your Gmail Signature as shown below:

Repeat the process for the remaining three icons.

Customize your signature with a question / contact elements.

Click “Save Changes” at the bottom of the Gmail settings screen.
