Turning E-mails into Google Documents

Wednesday, January 14th, 2009 by | Filed Under: E-Mail Help

Turning E-mails into Google Documents

I have good news! Just one simple click with your mouse is all it takes to convert an e-mail into a Google Docs document. Yep, you read that right! It’s one of the new features Google has brought to all of their Google Docs users. And yes, it means no more copying and pasting the text from your e-mail. All you have to do is open the message you want to convert, click on the Create a Document link on the right hand side of the page and you’ll have a brand new document that can be modified and shared. How cool is that?!

Now, just in case you’re not interested in converting any of your current e-mails into documents, you can easily open up a blank document by hitting G + W on your keyboard (just make sure you have your keyboard shortcuts turned on).

If you’re not sure how to turn the keyboard shortcuts on, simply follow these steps:

As soon as your Gmail account is open, click on the Settings tab in the top right hand corner.

Select Labs.

Next, select Enable (located next to Create a Document) and then click Save Changes at the bottom.

Now, you’ll be able to convert any e-mail content into a Google Doc with just a simple click of your mouse. Enjoy!
