How To Use the Gorgias Templates: Email Templates for Gmail

As busy professionals, it's important to find ways to be more efficient in every day tasks. If you're finding you're sending the same emails regularly, or a variation of the same emails, using email templates can be a great way to save you time on a day to day basis.

The Gorgias 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 Gorgias, 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 Gorgias Templates.
