Where are canned responses for Gmail?

If you're looking to increase your email productivity in Gmail, you may be looking for the feature known as "canned responses" or "templates." This feature allows you to create and save multiple templates for frequently sent messages to reduce repetitive typing. Here's how to find and use canned responses in Gmail:

  1. Open Gmail: Make sure you're signed in to your account.

  2. Click on the Gear Icon: This is located in the upper right corner of your Gmail inbox.

  3. Select 'See all settings': This will take you to the full settings menu.

  4. Go to the 'Advanced' Tab: Scroll through the tabs at the top until you find 'Advanced'.

  5. Enable 'Templates': Find the 'Templates' section and click 'Enable'. Don't forget to save your changes at the bottom of the page!

  6. Compose an Email: Click on the 'Compose' button to start a new email.

  7. Click on the Three Dots: In the compose window, click on the three dots menu to find 'Templates'.

  8. Save or Insert a Template: From here, you can insert a saved template into your email or save a new template.

Despite having the canned responses feature, Gmail's functionality is fairly basic and can be limiting for power users or teams.
