Do you find yourself typing the same words or phrases frequently? If so, you can
save time with the Quick Text Hotkeys add-in. This add-in inserts predefined
text by mapping words or phrases
to a function key. Similar to a text macro or Word's
AutoText feature, it's just
one click to insert as much text as you need. Perfect for inserting frequently used text like
Microsoft® Outlook® signatures or responding to tech support requests.
You can save time by inserting with a single keyboard click frequently used attention lines,
header/footer text, business signatures or family/friend signatures, subject lines, anything
that you can type into an Outlook email, contact, note, etc. It's perfect for the busy professional - it
gets those emails out so you can get the job done.
New! You can now insert your HTML text and it will retain the font, or it can take on the font
that is currently being used.

"I am a consultant, so being able to time and date stamp tasks
with my name to notes, email communications in Outlook is very important and useful because
I am able to send status reports from Outlook that show chronological details that clients
can follow. A neat feature I discovered is that by having all those date stamps in the
notes of my Tasks I can enter the date in the Search window of my To Do List and everything
I did that day will sort out." - Doug Bates, Restaurant DNA Consulting
You can keep separate business and family Outlook signatures while easily inserting them when necessary.
You can use the Quick Text Hotkeys add-in to also insert frequently used URLs,
instructions, vacation notices, whatever you need it to do. In a way, it's like using
Outlook templates except that you don't need to save or load any special files. Some users
have compared it to Word's AutoText feature, except that you don't need to load Word
in order to use it.
It's perfect for email support, customer emails, and anywhere where repetitive text is frequently needed.
Note: Do you only need the feature to insert the date and time? If so, there's a less expensive add-in
that's dedicated to just inserting the date and time
which also has a hotkey option.
