Google Mail and Contacts – Pt. 1

May 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm PDT

This series covers Gmail and Contacts as well as how to use the tools effectively in an adult education classroom. These hands on, virtual workshops will walk you through Gmail shortcuts and tasks that will increase productivity and save time.

This first in a series will cover different time saving tips when using Gmail and Contacts within a program and with adult education students. This is a hands-on workshop which will demonstrate ways to change settings, attach and save files to and from Drive, create contact lists and groups, using labels and filters to make Gmail more efficient.
Topics during this session may also include but are not limited to:

G Mail Tools: An Inbox can be set to organize and prioritize automatically within settings. After a user includes their own settings, messages upon receipt can reflect the options like starring important conversations, reading conversations within a thread, and more. Snooze options, labels, and filters are other useful tools within Gmail that will be covered.

G Mail Templates: Gmail templates allows a user to save a custom email on file and then send it anytime needed. Topics covered will include creating, editing, and deleting templates as well as inserting them into Gmail.

Attachments: The “handshake” between Gmail and Drive will be covered where: files sent by others can be opened and/or saved directly to a users Drive, attachments can be added to messages without ever leaving a message, and other storage options.

Contacts: Send a message to groups instead of individuals to avoid entering every name separately. Along with creating contacts, creating contact groups that can be used within Gmail to send group messages will be covered as well as scheduling messages will also be covered and more as time allows or is requested (per requesting program*).
