Whether you’re a reporter responding to pitches or a therapist not taking patients -- if you’re constantly typing out the same responses to emails, you’ll be happy to know there’s a simpler way to do this with Gmail’s “Canned Responses” feature.
“Canned Responses” lets users add custom email templates to their personal library and send them with just one click. To set this up, go to the gear icon then “Settings” and click the “Labs” tab and find “Canned Responses.” Under this, check the box next to “Enable” and click “Save.”

Now, compose an email message that you’d like to use over and over again. Click the arrow in the lower right-hand corner of the message window, choose “Canned Responses,” and under the “Save” heading, click “New Canned Response.” Name your new response and click “OK.”
Next time you want to respond to an email with this message, click the “More options” button in your message window and select the Canned Response you want to use.
