Canned response for Gmail (2019)



Canned response for Gmail (2019)

Canned responses for Gmail are good if you have to respond to the same questions via email frequently.

I, for instance, need to have two or three canned responses when I run an email campaign since most people would be asking me the same questions which need standard responses. So instead of spending time to type out the same reply over and over again, you can use this feature to reply to them in a few seconds VS spending 3-5 minutes per email.
