Aren’t you tired of typing the same answer over and over again? If that is the case, then let Google’s Canned Response take a load of your shoulders and answer your e-mail automatically. All you have to do in order to activate this feature is access your Gmail account, click “settings”, then “labs”, and then enable the “canned response” feature. Numerous people that work in offices are very much familiar with the “Out of Office” automated reply. Canned Response is similar in that it automatically replies to certain emails that reach your inbox. The feature will save you precious time, time that you can put into your work, or any other activity. Here is how the whole thing goes. Let’s say that you get loads of e-mails all asking you the same question – time and time again you provide the same answer and it is starting to get on your nerves. The next time you are composing the message, make sure to save it as a canned response. When answering future e-mails, all you have to do is click on the saved canned response, thus saving you the tedious job of typing the response yourself. You can even take things one step further and set up various filters (keywords, sender name, and so on). When the filter detects a certain keyword, an automated response will be sent out. The bottom line is this: Canned Response is a useful and practical utility, just like Google Goggles, but it is nothing too impressive. Other standalone mail clients have been offering similar automated response services for years, so it’s not like Google is reinventing the wheel. What is Google Goggles? It is a feature that is said to prevent you from sending out e-mail messages when you are under the influence of alcoholic beverages (since you will most likely regret it when you sober up).
