How do I change my Gmail / Google profile picture?

All NPAS staff and students are located in the same district email directory. Some of our students and staff have the same or similar names. Please use care when selecting the name of the intended email recipient. As a reminder, all staff members should have a professional picture uploaded to their Gmail profile. The best picture to use is your school Lifetouch picture... not the NP logo... not the Trojan logo... and not a picture of your pet or family. These images do not help distinguish between a staff email and a student's.

How do I use the Snooze feature?

The Snooze feature in Gmail allows you to postpone emails and temporarily remove them from your inbox until you need them. Your email will come back to the top of your inbox when you want it to, whether that's tomorrow, next week, or this evening.

How do I create a template for answering the same question?

Tired of typing the same reply every time someone sends you an email with a common question? Compose your reply once and save the email as a template. Later, you can open the template and send it again with just a few clicks.

How do I set up a "Vacation responder" or out-of-office auto-reply?

If you'll be away from your Gmail account, like on a vacation or without access to the Internet, you can set up a vacation responder to automatically notify people that you won't be able to get back to them right away. When people send you a message, they'll receive an email response containing what you've written in your vacation auto reply.
