How To Use the Briskine Templates: Email Templates for Gmail

Create custom & personalized templates

Do you find yourself writing the same answers to common questions? Templates allow you to answer common questions in just a second.

You can even use custom variables such as the recipient's first name to personalize your messages.

The Briskine extension is a great way to increase your productivity with templates and add keyboard shortcuts on Gmail and Outlook.

Email templates can help make your Parkbench processes simpler, by creating email templates such as:

  • Emails you send to book interviews
  • Emails you send to interviewees before the interview
  • Interview confirmation emails
  • Follow up email after the interview

Once you have templates set up in Briskine, you can simply add any template to an email you're writing by entering the shortcut you've chosen and hitting the 'tab' key. Follow these steps to start using Briskine Templates.
