Time Hack: Add Amy to your emails with zero clicks

This little hack will save you a second or two when it comes to CCing Amy or Andrew on an email but could also save you a ton of time otherwise when you need to CC anyone on an email. While it is not an x.ai-specific hack, it does work on Gmail and Outlook alike.

To quickly CC Amy, simply type @amy in the body of the email. You’ll get an autocomplete drop down something like this. Select Amy from the menu and presto! They are added to the CC line! 

Now you can save time by CCing Amy without tabbing or moving your mouse around. Cool, huh? This trick also works for anyone in your address book, saving you even more time. Who knew that the humble @mention also works in email?
