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.
Google Sheets, available as part of both consumer Gmail and organization-wide Google Workspace, allows users to easily create trend charts based on any source that can be connected to a Google Sheet.
The GOOGLEFINANCE function for Bitcoin was not working for a time, but seems to be working again now. You can “set and forget” the function—cells will auto-populate or auto-update at regular intervals.
When someone uses a free service such as Gmail, Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn, they are not a customer of the service provider.
For free services such as these, the customers of the service provider are the advertisers.
The product offered by the service provider to advertisers is a combination of the service itself and the users of the service. In other words, free users are a part of a product offering for advertisers.
One of the key advantages that Google Docs has over the competition is that a document (or spreadsheet or presentation, etc.) can be shared for editing or commenting with any Google Workspace or consumer Gmail user outside of one’s own organization.
But what if a Google Workspace user needs to share a document with someone outside their organization who does not have a Gmail account?
Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) and Microsoft Office 365 are the two most popular cloud-based suites of business productivity applications on the market. Among the best known applications within these suites are email, calendar, documents, spreadsheets, presentations and online storage.
In March 2017, Google introduced a new online meeting experience called Hangouts Meet. On April 7, 2020, the app was rebranded to “Google Meet.”
This online meeting capability used to be a major differentiator between consumer Gmail and business Google Workspace.
A Google Meet meeting could only be initiated by someone who was part of an organization using Google Workspace and for which the Meet capability has been enabled for the Google Workspace organization. However, the ability to be a Google Meet host will soon be available to anyone with a Google account—including a free Gmail account.
