Template Phrases plugin helps you paste typical replies in Outlook e-mails

Template Phrases for Microsoft Outlook is undoubtedly a very useful tool for anyone who extensively uses e-mail in their daily work, from technical support personnel to sales managers. All you need is to create a template once, then you can freely insert this text into your Outlook message.

Greetings, signatures, answers to frequently asked questions, words or phrases can be typed hundreds of times; the same things are explained to your clients or partners again and again. How nice it would be have all these thank you templates, signatures and other regularly used text snippets ready to be inserted into your Outlook message. Picking the right template with text formatting, hyperlinks, images, attachments, and pasting it into an e-mail in a flash, this is exactly what our Outlook template add-in offers! Below you will find how replying with a template can save you hours of precious time.

Template Phrases for Outlook - key benefits

You see all your templates at a glance organized in a multi-level tree structure, and you also see the full text of the currently selected template in the preview window.

Feature-rich formatting for HTML mail templates

Add basic text formatting to your templates - bold, italic, bullets, headers, etc. Insert any pictures, signatures and hyperlinks into your Outlook templates. Edit their text the way you are used to.

Company-wide templates

The Shared templates feature is really helpful if you work in a team and want to share your Outlook templates with co-workers. All you need is to drop your templates to a shared network drive.

From now on, you can be absolutely sure that all your clients receive the most competent, thoroughly written and proof-read answers.

Auto fill message fields with template macros

You get a pretty good set of template macros, to automatically add BCC/CC recipients when replying to your emails using templates, request Read or Delivery receipts, and to do a whole lot of other things which you do manually dozens of times a day.

You can also benefit from a macro that will prompt you to enter a given value every time you paste the template or pre-populate a value selected from the drop-down list. E.g. the time or date for a meeting template and so on.

Insert text in Outlook with a shortcut

Assign shortcuts to most frequently used templates or save time by automatically inserting text of a template into all new Outlook emails, replies or forwards

As you type, all templates containing this word, or its part, appear in the Template Phrases for Outlook pane. Just double-click on the needed name to use this template in your reply.
