How to Set Up Canned Responses in Gmail

  • MORE

Canned responses are a great resource for those that continually get the same questions or comments via email. If you find yourself using the same email response again and again, it’s probably best to set up a canned response for quicker replies. Once set up, you’ll no longer have to answer the same question for the thousandth time.

    I have created many canned responses, but now when I click on the canned responses menu item, all I see is my list of canned responses, no option to create a new one. Is there a limit to the number of canned responses one can create?
