Google Tip #1 - Emails to Tasks
- selecting the email
- clicking the "More"
- and choosing “Add to Tasks.”
Google Tip #2 - Send SMS from GMAIL
Enter a mobile phone number into the box. Click “Send SMS”. You will get a popup box asking you to enter a Contact name. Gmail will store this information for you so you won’t have to enter that number each time. Notice you can even send texts to people in different countries! (Check that their mobile carrier is supported by clicking the link)
Now you should see a chat box open with your contact. Just type into the chat box like you normally would. Every time you hit Enter, a text is sent.
Google will give you up to 50 free SMS messages to use. Each time you send an SMS, one credit will be deducted. However, each time you receive a reply, you are awarded 5 more! (If you’re running low, consider opening a SMS box with your own cell phone number and replying back to earn credits)
Google Tip #3 - Create Templates in Google Drive
After you create your Google document (or any Google spreadsheet, form, presentation, or drawing) that you would like to use as a template , go to your Drive homepage.
Click on Create and select “from template.”
In the new screen, in the far right, click “submit a template.”
Here, you can select from any of your Google Docs, create a description for the template, and categorize it. Important note: once it is a template, others at RRISD can modify it. Therefore, it is wise to make a copy of the document prior to submitting it as a template.
The template will appear under the RoundRock ISD Templates and My Templates.
