Auto Text - templates

We covered this on the course but I cannot remember how to do this:
create key words/phrases/single letters even so that text appears automatically in Outlook.
Apparently, it's the same principle for Word.
I made notes, but they don't make sense now, cannot follow the steps I wrote down.
Please help!!

RE: Auto Text - templates

Hi Sarah,

No problem at all. In the New Message window, you select the text you want to use as Auto Text, then click the Insert tab in the ribbon. Click the Quick Parts button, go to Auto Text and click on Save Selection To Auto Text. Type / accept the name to save it under.

The next time you want to use the text, simply type the first few letters of the name it is saved under, then press Enter. All the text should appear in the message pane.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards
