Many of you have asked us about the different ways you can use Gorgias, so after interviewing dozens of users we decided to write about some of the common and unique use cases!

Never make a mistake typing personal information

One main Gorgias use case is to quickly type things that never change and that should never be misspelled. This includes personal info like names, addresses, phone numbers, skype IDs and links that can be replaced by short keywords or letters.

Save time typing frequent email sentences

For frequent email sentences like addressing the recipient, thanking the connector or signing emails, it’s easy to use shortcuts (i.e. “Hello {{to.0.first_name}}”,  “thanks {{bcc.0.first_name}} for the intro, moving you to bcc”).

Do HR work faster and reach out to more candidates

HR workers create templates for emails reaching out to prospective candidates. There usually have a template per stage of the application process. As the candidate progresses through this process, they still use a template but spend more time personalizing their message.
