Google Docs is one of the most used word processors, not only because it works online from the browser, but also because it is free and allows you to share and edit documents collaboratively quite easily.
In a work environment like the one we find in Google Docs, you may be writing a document and suddenly feel the need to send an email to a co-worker to solve a doubt. Did you know that Docs allows you to send emails from within a document? Let’s see how it works!
How to send an email from Google Docs (Google Docs)
Opening the email app isn’t a lot of work, but it’s true that you can get distracted at times. You go in to send an email, but then end up checking the inbox, answering some other last-minute email, etc.
To avoid this type of situation when you are working with Google Docs, do the following:
- Open a Google Docs document.
- Place the cursor where you want the email draft you are going to write to appear.
- In the top menu, click on “ Insert -> Building Blocks -> Email draft ”.
- A box with the draft for the email will be automatically inserted into the document. Fill in all the necessary fields, such as the recipient, the subject, and the body of the email.
- When everything is ready, click on the blue M icon.
- Then a Gmail popup will open with the draft prepared and ready to be sent. Simply click on “Send”.
E-mail sent! Please note that the email will be sent from the same Gmail account that you used to access Docs. Also, remember that this is a trick to encourage concentration and avoid distractions, so Google Docs will not notify you if the recipient responds to your email (for that you will have to enter Gmail as usual to check the inbox).
As you can see, it’s a fairly simple trick but it works, and it will certainly please those who like to get straight to the point.
