No matter what you do on the Internet, it seems that most of us waste a lot of time dealing with email every day.

One of the biggest ways to waste time is replying to multiple people with the same message, especially if you have to do it throughout the day. 

If you have a Gmail account, today’s tip could help you reduce this waste.

A hidden feature in Gmail that you should activate is called ‘Canned Responses’ and it can be a real time saver. 

Once you turn on the feature in the ‘Settings’ menu, you’ll then have the ability to copy any body of text and have it as a canned response that can be pasted with the click of a mouse.
