Cool Feature - Gmail canned responses

I tend to send out a lot of "how to" emails and many of them are exactly the same. One of the ways I get around the monotony of typing the same set of directions over and over is by using the "canned response" feature in Gmail. It allows me to create a really detailed and well worded set of directions once, and use it as many times as I need in the future without having to search.

Step One: Turned on Canned Responses
  • Click the gear icon at the top of any Gmail page. From there, select Mail settings
  • Select Labs
  • Enable Canned Responses
  • Click Save Changes at the bottom of the page

Step Two: Create Canned Response

  • Select Mail
  • Click  Compose
  • Create your canned response
  • Select Canned responses > New canned response
  • Choose a name for your canned response and click OK
