First off, thank you to @kwdinc for hunting Signature!! πŸ˜ƒ We're very excited to launch this tool to you Product Hunters today. This project started out of a desire to further automate users' email experiencesβ€”our goal at Salesflare is to reduce manual data entry so that people can spend more time building relationships. Signature is a big step toward this goal, as it will allow anyone using Gmail to avoid spending time doing things that machines can easily do for them. We're overwhelmed with the support we've received ahead of this launch. We had thousands of people join the waitlist, and we're excited to see what everyone thinks of the tool! Remember: if you sign up for our waitlist and invite three friends, all four of you skip the line and get access to the tool automatically. ✨ Plus: for those of you who have gained access to the tool, we have an exciting bonus feature available if you invite three additional friends - you can do this within Signature πŸ˜‰ Feel free to leave feedback or questions in the comments belowβ€”we'll be hanging out here today to chat more about Signature!

Great product! Does it by any chance support Inbox by Gmail?

Great Idea, but as you are a European company i would worry about GDPR issues here... Clearbit dont care as they are in the us, but in EU we have to be careful of what we make our customers process

@jesper_n_qvist As I mentioned on your Facebook comment already: no need to worry about GDPR. Signature just takes email signatures that people knowingly send to your Gmail inbox and puts it in your Google Contacts. We don't store anything on our side either.

@jeroen_corthout Coolio...

@jeroen_corthout Awesome update :) well done!
Cole Kennedy
Contacts are broken and especially because of the weird duality between your Gmail archive and your actual Google Contacts list. This fixes that. That is a very good thing.

I tried one of these kinds of things before, and it cluttered my contact lists with all these newsletter emails, customer service responses, and other junk. Do you do anything to only add actual people to Google Contacts rather than all these info@ and newsletter@ emails?
Jeroen Corthout β˜•
Maker
@dberkowitz Yes, we do. We use Gmail's built-in classification to only add signatures for contacts that are relevant. Plus it won't create new contacts if there's no signature. And finally, there's an undo button in case anything might not have been 100% up to your expectations.
David Berkowitz
@jeroen_corthout fantastic - very helpful. I will check it out.

Maker
@dberkowitz And my colleagues tell me we also filter out email addresses like info@ and newsletter@ etc. 😁
David Berkowitz
@jeroen_corthout amazing, thanks. Can't wait to be a power user of this.
Tom Lazay
This looks great. Can you explain what, if any data you're collecting from my gmail messages and/or contacts? Thanks

@tlazay Hi Tom! Signature looks for email signatures in your Gmail inbox. In these signatures it detects phone numbers, addresses, positions/roles, company names, social profile URLs, and of course email addresses and names. It then adds this info to your Google Contacts to enrich them, fully automatically. In Signature you can see what's updated and undo in case you don't like some update. If you get 3 friends to sign up, Signature will not only import signatures for your new emails, but also go a full year back to update everything.

@jeroen_corthout still cant login to signature,, been a few days now
Tom Lazay
@jeroen_corthout Thanks for explanation- I meant to ask the question from a privacy and data protection perspective so I'm wondering (1) whether or not your servers keep copies of any message content or contact info after the contact record is created (e.g- if you get hacked, is my email content or contact list at risk of getting exposed) and (2) whether or not your business model includes selling any kind of analytics to 3rd parties based on my mail habits or the text in my gmail content. Thanks!

@ryan_walker2 Hey Ryan! Google keeps asking us more info for verification. We keep providing. It's a pain but we'll send you an email when it's all done!
Jeroen Corthout β˜•
Maker
@tlazay Got it! (1) No, we don't keep anything on our servers. We just pick up data from Gmail, process it, and then save the data in Google Contacts. Nothing remains with us. We only need to keep a connection with Google going. (2) Nope. This is only meant to attract more eyeballs to Salesflare itself. At Salesflare we provide a simple yet powerful CRM that automates your customer data so that you can build better relationships and make more sales. One of these features is auto-importing email signatures, which we spinned off here, 100% for free.
