Many people use Gmail nowadays, and that is no surprise. It’s easy to use, free, and Google knows how to make a good product. If you use Gmail you may possibly not be using it to its full potential. It has some incredible tools built into it that make it simple for you to organize your email. Below is a description of some of those tools and links to pages that show you how to utilize them.
Label your messages: Applying labels to your messages visually organizes your inbox so you know what emails you need to address first. For instance, if there are a few emails that you need to deal with before the others you can tag them with a red “Important” label. Or, if you are organizing a vacation, you can apply a green “Vacation” label to any verification emails that come in.
Free up space with archiving: Do you like to have a clean inbox but have a ton of emails that you don’t wish to delete? By archiving messages in Gmail you can move them to an “All Mail” folder to get them out of the way. You have access to them anytime this way but they won’t be cluttering your inbox.
Add a signature: Tired of typing your name, phone number, and email address at the bottom of each of your Gmail messages? Why not create an email signature? Gmail allows you to save signatures that you can then simply drop into the base of your messages. This is a excellent time saver for anyone who writes a large number of email messages during an average day.
Filter your incoming messages: Filtering is a very neat feature of Gmail. It will automatically label, file, delete, or archive emails. You can choose the “Filter messages like this” option from Gmail’s “More” menu and specify what an email ought to include to have a certain action applied to it. For instance, if you are looking to hire someone you can have any email that includes the words “resume” or “job” sent to a specific folder.
