You would like to add hyperlinks into signatures with a URL pulled from the Active Directory for each user using Signature Manager Outlook Edition or Signature Manager Exchange Edition.
Signatures can include a wide range of dynamic information using Active Directory fields. These fields are inserted into templates (via the integrated template editor) and then dynamically updated when email messages are sent or received.
The Custom Hyperlink and Custom Image fields are specifically designed for you to add content that triggers either a standard hyperlink (that is, an external URL for a web page) or pulls information from a given Active Directory field.
Using the Custom Hyperlink field, you can specify the text to be displayed as a hyperlink and the associated URL.

Note: When specifying an image location, you can even incorporate Active Directory fields as elements in the path.
In this example, the filename is specified as the user's Display Name, as specified in the associated Active Directory field.
