    That’s awesome! Never knew you could do that, thanks for sharing!

  8. Kimberly

    I cannot thank you enough for this! Every week I say to myself that I need to save a “no thank you” response email to brands so I can just copy/paste when I need it, but this is MUCH better! :)

    I use MacMail instead, so I set up multiple signatures to do the same thing. Makes a huge difference!

    Found your blog via Pinterest this morning and am officially subscribed. I love/adore/cannot live without canned responses. I’m in the second year of my business (launched last February) and these shortcuts save me so much time while I build and grow – basically until I can afford an assistant to handle more of the everyday tasks!

    Cheers from L.A.! (from a fellow Missouri-raised, Mizzou grad and former D.C. resident!)

    This is great to know. Amazing post and very detailed. Too bad none of my emails can be “canned” since all them are always also very different lol. wide variety of topics are discussed.

  18. Naomi (Design Manifest)

    Super helpful. Wow.

  19. danielle @ lou what wear

    Such a great tip. Going to set up some of these for work right now!

    This has actually saved my life. For real.

    This is one of my FAVORITE gmail plugins! I also highly recommend Boomerang & Rapportive (not in labs, but an add-on), and the ‘Undo Send’ button and the one that reminds you when you forgot to attach the Attachment!

  22. alyson

    wow, this is so amazing. life. changer. thanks!

  23. Kamola

    At work I use basically the same spiel when I send out many of my emails so I created them as signatures instead! I have about 5 different ones I use on the regular… saves me so much time AND I don’t have to rack my brain trying to remember what I wrote last time. This is so similar and is a great feature to use in gmail!

  25. Dale Stu

    I have spent days trying to figure out how to do a canned response. I went to your web site, followed your instructions and within seconds I was able to produce canned responses. Thank you!

  26. Eboné Smiley

    You just saved my life. Thank you.

  27. henk j. krasenberg

    hello meg,
    i wanted to find guidance to create another canned response. your site was top of the list on google so i opened it. seeing your face was the best first impression and the design of your site was a close second best.
    just wanted to make my compliments for both you and your site…..
    best regards,
    henk

    how does one auto-populate the name from an email received to their out going email when its on vacation settings?

  29. Krisztina @ krisztinawilliams.com

    Oh my GOD I love you for this!! I’ve started having various responses that were so similar. I created responses as documents, but this will still save me an extra bit of time! Thanks!

    Girl, you just blew my mind! So simple and easy! Thanks for sharing this:)

    […] This is screenshot I took as I was getting started. When you open compose, you will see a menu option on the right left. I now can choose from any template that I have created. So much faster than copy paste from another document! For example, I made a canned response for when I get a wedding inquiry. I no longer book weddings, but I am more than happy to refer talented friends in the area who do. And I was typing out their names, googling their websites, copy and pasting, EVERY TIME. How silly when I could just be sending them this pre-composed response. You can also set your email filters up so that certain emails automatically are sent a canned response. I found a great blog post explaining step by step how to set your canned responses up HERE. […]
