Both consumer Gmail and business Gmail users often have a need to create Gmail templates.
Fortunately, Google Labs developed an easy (and free) way to create Gmail templates. This app is called Canned Responses. As its name implies, the intent of the app was for responding to inbound emails. However, the majority use case may well be for new outbound emails.
Access to Canned Responses is available to Google Workspace users by default, but user access can be disabled by a Google Workspace administrator in the admin console.
For anyone who is in sales and who uses either Google Workspace or Gmail, there’s a new sales productivity platform from Cirrus Insight that’s worth taking on a test drive.
Cirrus Insight’s flagship product was a Chrome extension for Gmail to Salesforce integration. Recently, the company expanded its offering to become a a broad and useful feature set for any user of Gmail or Google Workspace — regardless of whether they are using a specific CRM application.
Through a combination of internal inventions and acquisitions, Cirrus has assembled a “dream suite” of tools that most salespeople will appreciate.
Here is an overview of a few of the ways that salespeople can benefit from the Cirrus platform.
There are two ways in which a Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) user can have an unlimited number of inbound email addresses associated with their Google Workspace account. We’ll refer to these ways as “dimensions”, as they can be used in combination.
Google Workspace Email Aliases
The first dimension of unlimited email addresses are email aliases. Aliases are assigned to a user account by a Google Workspace admin. An admin can assign multiple values to what is technically called the Local-part of the email address, or the part before the @ sign.
In the following example, you will see that Lou’s default email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Lou must use this address to login to her email account.
