Google Workspace has introduced email draft templates to Google Docs. This feature allows users to easily collaborate on email drafts and send emails directly from Google Docs.

How it Works

  • From the Google Doc navigation toolbar, select File > Email > Email Draft.
  • Tag collaborators in the recipient fields using the @ menu.
  • Collaborate on the message body using comments and suggestions.
  • When ready to send, click the button shown along the left side of the email draft.
  • A Gmail preview window will open with email fields (subject, to, cc, bcc, and body) automatically populated based on the email draft in the document.
