Google Summer Collaboration Challenge Week 4

Using Gmail at Manhattan College

Manhattan College provides a JasperNet account to all students and employees that comes with email powered by Gmail. With Gmail you can:

        1. Create and send email
Creating and sending emails is as easy as selecting Compose within Gmail. You can then specify the recipients and the subject, and begin typing the content. Once done, select Send to send the email. You can view sent mail by selecting the Sent Mail section in Gmail.

      2. Organize your inbox

You can manage and organize emails by creating labels and filters. To create a label, select Settings in the top right, and select Settings. Then select the Labels tab. Scroll to the Labels section and select Create new label. Enter the label name and select Create. You can also create nested labels, which are like subfolders. You also have the option to Star emails. You can view any starred emails in the Starred of Gmail.

      3. Search for emails
To search for specific emails, type any keywords associated with the email in the search bar found at the top of the page in Gmail. Once you have entered keywords into the search bar, any emails associated with the key words will be displayed.

      4. Create email signatures
With Gmail, you can also create Email Signatures. Manhattan College provides an email signature generator, which automatically generates email signatures for all employees using the information found on Banner.  Follow the instructions found in the Email Signature Knowledge Base Article to create a Manhattan College generated email signature.

For more helps, tips, and tricks, please see the Gmail section in the GSuite Learning Center.
