You may be aware of the Gmail Lab Canned Responses, which enables standard text to be quickly added as you compose a new Gmail message.
Here’s another nice trick you can use to simplify and speed-up the sending of standard emails.
Because everything in Google Apps is a URL (a web address/link) you can build custom URLs which trigger an action in a Google App.

This URL will generate a Compose New Email window:
from this you can add elements as outlined in the table below.
Note that to include spaces (e.g. for a Subject) you need to use the special characters: %20
|&to=||adds to firstname.lastname@example.org,email@example.com|
|&cc=||adds cc firstname.lastname@example.org|
|&bcc=||adds bcc email@example.com|
|&su=||adds the subject||&su=Welcome%20to%20GAppsTips!|
|&body=||adds text for the message body||&body=Hello%20to%20You%20all|
This builds to the link:
Give it a try – but don’t actually send the message as those are not real email addresses.
However you can use this one to send us a Thank You!
Try constructing some of you own and testing them.
Once you know it’s working you can add it as a Chrome bookmark and have it available to use whenever it’s needed.
