Boosting Gmail Productivity

Boosting Gmail Productivity

Looking for suggestions to boost Gmail productivity or your overall inbox experience? Here’s just a few of many I utilize.👇

1. Canned responses

If you find yourself using the same responses or templates, simply add some canned responses.

– Click the gear icon.
– Choose See all settings.
– Click Advanced.
– In the Templates section, select Enable.
– Click Save Changes.

Just add your first response, just compose a new email, click More Options, Canned responses, and then New canned response.

2. Enable keyboard shortcuts

– Click the gear icon
– Choose See all settings.
– Click Advanced.
– Select Custom keyboard shortcut, select Enable
– Click Save Changes

You will then open up the Keyboard Shortcuts tab in Settings and configure.

3. Schedule email sending

Yes, Gmail now has this feature built-in. (Although the Boomerang Extension is much better)

– Select the dropdown arrow beside the blue Send button
– Choose when you want to schedule sending the email

I tend to schedule at a time such as 8:03 am as opposed to 8:00 am so it looks more genuine.

4. Customizing your inbox

– Click the gear icon
– Under Quick Settings, you can control the density of the presentation, inbox type (Important first, unread first, priority first etc), reading pane and email threading.
