Learn how to use Gmail to compose, format, and send emails

We start this training by showing you how to compose emails – you will see how to format text, add attachments, links, and more.

We will also explore any settings related to sending, such as Gmail smart compose, creating a signature and adding another email address to send mail from. We will also show you how to schedule sending for later, create email templates, use confidential mode, etc.

See how to manage and sort your inbox

Next, we’ll look at any actions you can take in Gmail, such as marking as read or unread, archiving, marking as spam, forwarding, etc.

We’ll also ensure you know how to sort your emails by helping you configure any related Gmail settings and showing you how to create and manage labels.

Customize Gmail's web user interface to make it perfect for you

Gmail is a flexible application, and its settings allow you to personalize it to the limit. Any setup you can think of is possible.

We will cover every single interface customization feature to help you genuinely make Gmail your own.

Configure general settings, import or export emails from your account, and more

Finally, we will look at all other settings, such as uploading a profile picture, enabling notifications, setting up an out-of-office reply, delegating access to your mailbox, etc.

We will show you how to export your emails from Gmail and import emails from other accounts to Gmail.

You will also see how to use the integrated Google Meet to start a meeting from Gmail, and explore other features such as Gmail keyboard shortcuts.

No, we are not affiliated with Google. However, we absolutely love their services. It is quite literally true that we know Google Workspace better than the palms of our hands.

We are proud to say that we have been in the business of supporting Google Workspace administrators and end-users with every conceivable task for almost a decade.

We have assisted a wide range of organizations of all sizes, from startups and small businesses to enormous organizations employing tens of thousands of people.

How is this Gmail training better than other help and support options?

This question should rather be, “How isn’t it better?”.

  • It is a cheaper product (completely free) and often more effective than hiring someone to help.
  • It is easier to follow and understand than Google’s Help Center, YouTube video content, or any other resource you can find.
  • It is easier, faster, and usually more effective than contacting Google Workspace support or any live person. You don’t need to wait in a queue, talk or chat with anyone, wait for them to reply, or deal with someone inexperienced.
  • On the other hand, we are there for you at any time, and it only takes seconds to find what you need and get things done.

Workspace123 provides the smartest, quickest, most user-friendly, and by far the most enjoyable way to get help with Google Workspace.

We put together all you may need to know thoughtfully, with your convenience as the top priority. You get maximum results with minimum effort.

Soon, we will start building a new help community around this, and everyone is welcome!
