It is easy to spend too much time in your email inbox and not enough time actually working. This article will show you how to incorporate canned responses into your email strategy so that you can return to the important tasks.

What’s a Canned Reply and How do you create Canned Replies in Gmail?

A canned reply is an email that has been prepared and can be sent to users. This is often used when there are many similar emails to send.

You might send the same email to everyone, or if you have a complicated workflow.

A canned response is a text piece that is used to answer users’ questions. Although it is common to send email templates from the administrator’s mailbox to the user’s, I recommend that the canned responses be placed in a separate folder.

How to Cancel Responses in Gmail

Sometimes, you don’t have the time or energy to respond to every email. It could be a hectic day, tired, or you simply need to quickly respond to someone who has to sign off on a document.

You can save time and give clients and your team the ability to send standard, but customizable responses in Gmail.

How to Turn Them Around:

1. From the top right corner of your compose screen, select the REPLY SENDER button. You can group your canned responses together while keeping them in their original folders. You can also select the Living folder and drag individual templates there. This will allow you to send new replies via a template file.

Finally, ensure that you have included the canned responses in your automation process.

2. If someone asks you for one, simply type in their question or comment. Then copy the entire text. It doesn’t really matter which language was used. Swiping over to locate that section will eventually point back to the original comment (and most likely, longer).

3. You need to only copy that chunk of text, and replace the TO tag with [name] instead. You can also select multiple messages simultaneously by selecting them from your Inbox/Reply list and checking all of them without losing context. However, you won’t see who will receive replies from this template file.

4. You should not use this feature too often, as you will end up with a lot of the same replies. They’re useful to keep people in the “initial impression mode”, but they are not essential.

5. Once you have completed your canned response document and it has been sent out, ensure that you add any filters to Gmail > Filters.
