Replying to the same emails over and over again does become monotonous and extremely time-consuming for those who rely too much on emails for business and personal communications. The quickest solution that will save you time with little to no effort, is to create an automatic response for email using canned response in Gmail.
For example, assuming you have an online presence and you receive frequent product inquiry emails, It makes sense to send an automatic email response to let the sender know their email has been received. Using the automatic response in Gmail, your answers can be bit more specific to the incoming email query.You can do this by combining Gmail’s filter and canned response features.
Despite this great feature, its widespread adoption like any other Google product has not happened, and there’s a reason why this product is still under Google Labs offerings.
Limitations of Gmail canned responses
First of all, Gmail canned response heavily depends on words in a specific sequence in an incoming email. For example, if a canned response is set for “buy me a cup of coffee” and the incoming email has the string “buy a coffee cup for me”, then the response is not generated. Essentially, this is nothing but comparison of string of words in a certain sequence.
Additionally, there is a limitation on the total number of canned responses you can set, the amount of words that can be written in a canned response. Additionally, you can’t have an email attachment in a canned response, which sometimes is a prerequisite for any business communication. Canned answers change your typical address slightly, for example, your email is email@example.com, conveying auto messages will change the address to firstname.lastname@example.org. These limitations of canned response in Gmail ensure less flexibility if you are planning to seriously use it to handle customer email inquiries for your business.
