Gmail is Google’s email client. It provides users the option to create accounts that are free and include 15 gigabytes of storage. Gmail also packs in it features that are very useful and that everyone can benefit from. This course looks at those features, giving you the specifics on each. We start by looking at some basic ones like how you can access Gmail’s Settings. Then, we look at Email Signatures in Gmail. We also look at Desktop Notifications, helping you decide whether you would better benefit from having them on or off. After that, we explain how Vacation Responder works, guiding you on its available options. From there, we move on to a useful feature that is Schedule Send. This is an interesting one that can be quite beneficial to some users. We also look at Undo Send and the Undo Send Cancellation Period and show you how you can modify it to your preference. Then, we look at Gmail’s Conversation View feature and present you with the benefits of having it set to on or off so you can decide on it, according to your needs. Moving on, we show you all the ways in which you can add attachments and photos to your emails with emphasis on the added benefits of using Google Drive for this purpose.  From there, we proceed to another feature that some users make good use of and that is Offline Mode.

After covering a multitude of features, the course moves on to adding Labels and creating Filters. These two features can, sometimes, work hand-in-hand, helping you stay better organized within your Inbox. Of course, we will give you all the information you need on how to use them, and the benefits to you from using each. Gmail’s Email Search also has extensive features including the search parameters that help you target specific emails when conducting your searches. These and other Search options are detailed within the material. We also show you how to use Canned Responses also known as Templates, Email Aliases which are very useful in certain scenarios, and Grant Access which allows you to delegate your account. And, having reviewed many of Gmail’s features, we then present you with our Productivity Tips. You can consider those as the links that bind it all together.
