Email Templates for Gmail

FeatureProductivityCollaboration

Do you find yourself writing the same emails over and over? Templates allow you to compose messages in just a few seconds. You can even use custom variables such as the recipient’s first name to personalise your messages, adjust the subject line, automatically add labels, copy specific recipients, and - icing on the cake - share & sync all or some of your templates with your team.

Why should you use email templates?

You can use email templates to save time on repeated tasks. For example:

  • Send an email in just one click
  • Automatically personalize quotes you send to your clients with the name of your recipient
  • Automatically add a label and Cc recipients based on rules you define
  • Send a weekly newsletter with a set format
  • Share and sync all or specific templates with anyone on your team, ensuring that everyone is on the same page
