In the fast paced environment we work and live in, I’m sure there’s been a time or two where we have sent an email that wasn’t 100% ready to go. Whether it’s a misspelled name or forgetting to attach a document, we’ve all been there! Luckily, Google understands that mistakes do happen and is willing to lend us a helping hand. Gmail is ready to help public relations employees with these three ways:
1. When it comes to multitasking, it is a very imperative skill to have, but can prompt things to get chaotic. You could be sending a hurried email to a client and in your quickness, forget to put a subject topic. Thankfully, Google is always watching and provides you with a reminder.
2. Much like forgetting the subject line, this can happen when we’re supposed to be sending an attachment. Typically, the recipient will receive another email with the attachment, but now, Gmail will make it aware that you have forgotten. When you get the alert, you can choose cancel and proceed with attaching your document.
3. One of the best Gmail options to come is the ability to undo the sending of an email. You may have spelled someone’s name incorrectly or wanted to send it to someone differently. Whatever the mistake is, instead of sending another email, you can click undo and fix your email before sending. To enable this option, go into your account setting, choose “enable undo send” and select an amount of seconds.
Thankfully, these email options from Google will help us decrease the mistakes or typos that can happen while emailing our PR clients.
