Time Saving Shortcuts for Gmail and G Suite

Posted on Tuesday, February 19, 2019 in

Kiwi for G Suite is loaded with features that will improve your productivity when using Gmail and G Suite apps like Docs, Sheets and Slides. Many of them are obvious, like all of the convenient buttons we’ve added to the intuitive new toolbar on the left side of the traditional Gmail interface that provide quick access to all G Suite applications and documents. You may not know about the helpful keyboard shortcuts we’ve created to save you even more time.

Keyboard shortcuts are often ignored because they can be hard to remember and learning one keyboard shortcut doesn't seem like it saves you a lot of time. But once you learn the lot of them, you'll definitely notice a boost to productivity because you're not unnecessarily reaching for a mouse.

Keyboard shortcuts can shave minutes off of various activities, which can really add up over the course of your workday. Studies calculate that using keyboard shortcuts allows people to work 10 times faster than working with the mouse. The time you spend looking for the mouse and then getting the cursor to the position you need is lost time.

Not only that, but extensive mouse usage is associated with R.S.I. (Repetitive Syndrome Injury) much often than the keyboard usage. By alternating mouse and keyboard usage you can reduce the risks of R.S.I. and reduce the fatigue your wrists and fingers.

The graphic above provides a handy overview of the unique keyboard shortcuts available in Kiwi for Gmail and Kiwi for G Suite.

We hope you'll take the time to try Kiwi and begin using a few of our keyboard shortcuts to increase your productivity!
