Gmail for Beginners and Pros

Course Overview

This course covers a variety of Gmail tips and tricks for all learners, from beginners to pros. The course will begin with modules dedicated to Gmail settings that make a big difference in your day-to-day use.

We’ll cover how to undo send, hover actions, nudges, and smart features. We’ll look at the magic of archiving to organize your older messages effectively rather than deleting them. We will cover the use of stars and indicators, along with inbox types and signatures. Yes, plural— Gmail now supports multiple signatures. The next modules focus on getting organized to increase your productivity. We’ll uncover the power combination of labels and filters and the use of templates, AKA canned responses.

We’ll touch on the built-in search feature, the side panel, and why you should use Chat and Spaces to reduce the number of emails in your inbox. All of this will make Gmail a productivity partner rather than a source of clutter and stress.
