Gmail is the world’s most effective, efficient and carefully built tech tools designed to make your life much easier and to use your time more productively. Without Gmail Extensions, Gmail is still an amazing platform but trust me, the story ends not only there. There are things you could do with your Gmail Extensions to make it even cooler and triple your productivity. Here are some of them.
1. Pre-schedule Messages Using Gmail Extensions
Sometimes we feel like emailing but are afraid the persons we want to get in touch with might not see it. In such a moment, most people will have to adjust their schedule so they can email later in the day when the person is available but to be honest with you, that isn’t the best option you can take. Instead, when you are not sure whether the person will see the message, you can make use of the Gmail Pre-schedule feature. The best way to make use of this feature is through the use of a popular browser extension called Inbox or another one called boomerang that will allow you to schedule up to 10 messages and all this is done for free.
2. Snooze Emails Using Gmail Extensions
This is also one other cool things you can do with your Gmail. The snooze feature is commonly popular with alarms. If you remember that time your alarm rings and you are really not feeling like getting up just yet, you can just keep on snoozing your alarm until two or three hours later, then you wake up. And oops, you’ll also be late. Gmail makes use of a browser extension called Gmail snooze that enables emails to pop up to the top of your messages on a scheduled date and time that is chosen by you.
3. Stock Responses Using Gmail Extensions
The stock responses feature is available courtesy of the Gmail lab. This feature is useful for those people who work in the customer service industry. Using it is like using templates to respond to asked questions. It makes sense because imagine if you have to write the same thing over and over to everyone who makes an inquiry, it would be strenuous, right? So, if you want to save more time, then it’s best for you to create canned messages and use those to send stock responses.
4. The Gmail ‘bluetick’ Using Gmail Extensions
If you are a fan of Messenger or even WhatsApp, then I’m sure you’re familiar with what a bluetick is. Normally, when you send someone an email and they don’t respond, the usual excuse would be something like, “Sorry, I didn’t see your email.” Yes, I know, sometimes, the person would be downright lying to you that they didn’t see the email when they did. To prevent such from happening, you can make use of track readers that will enable you to see whether your email was opened or not. Apart from that, they will also give you insights and stats to tell you how many times the email was opened and even extend to the type of device that was used to open the email. Some track reader extensions include, Sidekick and Banatag Email Tracking.
5. Schedule Appointments Using Gmail Extensions
Yes, you heard that right, you can schedule your appointments right from the dashboard of your Gmail account. It’s simply amazing. By making use of Gmail labs, you could pull off your calender and use it to adjust and arrange your meetings right next to your Gmail inbox making scheduling really easy. Apart from that, you could also make use of a plug in named Todoist for Gmail to organize your tasks and even your emails in Chronological order.
6. Manage all your mail from one inbox Using Gmail Extensions
You can also use your Gmail Inbox to manage all your other emails by making use of the settings tab in your Gmail account. What this means is that if you have your email named firstname.lastname@example.org, you can conveniently add it to your Gmail account and manage it from the account. I understand if you are doubting the power of this feature, so I’m going to give you a full list of what you can do.
– Send and receive emails.
– Add your yahoo, aol and other email providers
– Send and receive media files
– Add your email signature
This is one cool feature that you should definitely consider using.
7. Work Offline
If you are temporary going to a remote place without internet access, then you shpuld use an app named Gmail Offline. This app was created by Google itself just to make life more convenient for you. The app allows you to read and reply your emails without an internet connection. Basically, the app is amazing. One of the distinct advantage you will get from using the app is the ability to work without any disturbances and the fact that you will be able to reconnect whenever you feel like connecting.
8. Do it all from inbox by Gmail
This is one of the most innovative Google Platforms that I swear will make life incredibly easier and more convenient for you. Using the app, will give you access to all the features highlighted above, the only difference being that you will be accessing all these features from a single interface, something I would classify as being extra convenient. According to Google, Inbox by Gmail is a what they termed a Fresh start that goes beyond email and helps to increase your productivity by paying attention and focusing only on what matter the most.
In conclusion, if you want to use your Gmail more productively, then it pays for you to start making use of these wonderful features today. Oh, and before I forget, Gmail has another cool undo send feature that you should definitely check out, it will come in handy.
