You can now setup a variety of “canned responses” that you can reply back within a couple of clicks. This is a huge time saver and will significantly cut down on your response time because you don’t have to write the same response over and over.
All responses are easily edited, just in case you need to customize your reply before sending it back. You can find Gmails new “canned response” feature in the ‘Settings’ menu within the email dashboard.
