Benefits of saving an email from Gmail as a PDF.
Converting an email from your Gmail inbox to PDF has many benefits. Here are three key reasons that it’s a good idea to learn how to carry out this task.
- PDFs are easier to find. If you are flying somewhere, you may receive your boarding pass via email. By saving that as a PDF and transferring it to your phone or tablet, you will have the boarding pass on hand as you check-in without having to frantically search through your emails to find it. What’s more, once it’s saved as a PDF on your device, you won’t need mobile data to access it.
- PDFs are editable. When you save a document as a PDF using Adobe Acrobat DC you are opening up a world of possibilities when it comes to editing and managing your document. You can use the platform to highlight relevant words and phrases, cut sections, add a signature, and much more.
- PDF storage allows for greater organisation. An important email could be accidentally deleted, mislabelled, sent to your spam folder or become lost in the back and forth of email exchanges. When you save an email as a PDF, you are actively storing it on your device, guaranteeing it will be there when you need it.
