Is one of the most frustrating parts of your job keeping your emails organized? Well, it does not have to be. Here are some Gmail hacks to help you stay organized and on track.
1- Undo Send
Ever send an email and go- NO! I forgot something or have a typo! Well, you can get the email back and fix it before it hits their mailbox. Here is how.
- Go to your Gmail settings – right hand side of Gmail and it is a Gear looking icon
- Be in the General tab
- You will see Undo Send – Few items down
- Select the amount of time you would like- can have up to 30 seconds
- Click Save
Now when you send an email, a box will appear and you have 30 seconds to undo the send to fix any issue. Life saver!
2- Get Reminders for Follow-Ups, Replies, Schedule Emails and More
Ever send out emails and go- I need to remember to reach out in a week if they do not reply.
Or, do you read an email but want a reminder to reply later, but then forget to?
Maybe you even want to schedule emails to go out at a certain time.
Boomerang for Gmail is the app for you!
This app allows you full control of your emails and gives you the power to organize your life without thousands of post it notes or writing on your hand. You can schedule emails, schedule follow-ups, reminders and more.
Just like a Boomerang, you send it, no answer, it comes back and reminds you in a few days if you should follow-up. Cool! The best part is they have a free plan too! Here is a quick intro video to Boomerang
3- Make an Impression With a Personalized Signature
Having a personalized signature is key to your email. Yes, you can make one and add an image, but those often mess up emails and cause outline problems. Instead, use WiseStamp.
