Automate responses to common messages

" "


Tired of typing the same reply each time someone sends you an email with a common question?

Compose your reply once and save it with canned responses. Then, set up a filter with information that includes keywords or subjects.

You can then use Gmail to automatically respond to messages that fit your criteria with your saved response.


  • Automate answers to customer questions about store hours, locations, and other general information.
  • If you receive a technical support email, Gmail can automatically forward it to the right person and send the customer a confirmation message.
