I recently have been trying to switch from Outlook to gmail.  Outlook had a nice feature called quicksteps where you could create a macro that could automatically forward an email to another person with prepended text and then either delete the original email or move it to another folder.  It was a nice time saver for selectively forwarding emails on and processing them.  Does anyone know of or have a way that can recreate that functionality in gmail?

Yes it is available.

Login in your Gmail account and go to
Settings --> Filters --> Create a new Filter.
then below "Create Filter Form" will be open.

Step 01
after filling the search criteria click on "Create filter with this search" then below options will be displayed.

Step 02
as you can see in this ... you can auto archive (skip inbox) it, delete it, forward to another email address... etc.

Thank you, but that is not what I am looking for. I already use that forwarding feature for emails that always need to be forwarded on certain conditions but I am looking for some automation to selectively forward emails that I have read and realize they need to go to someone else.  Currently I hit F for forward and then I click on the canned response to insert in a message and then I hit the send button and then I move the item to another folder all manually in Gmail.  Outlook 2010 allows you to do quick steps so that you can do all of those steps with one button click. I would like to find a way with Gmail to do all those steps with one click.

I have been able to simulate this functionality with AutoHotKey.

AutoHotKey can automate many things on Windows and can be assigned shortcut keys.  I just write AutoHotKey macros that send the proper keystrokes to gmail to selectively forward email when needed and not set up a filter that gmail filters all of them.
