Despite Gmail not being the most used email client, many of us are using it on a daily basis. And those emails can end up taking a big chunk out of our day.
So here's how you start taking back that time and keep your focus on being proactive rather than reactive:
1. Add automatic filters
2. Reply and archive simultaneously (killing two birds with one stone)
3. Learn shortcuts (such as n/p to move between next/previous messages).
4. Use canned emails (literally can save you hours)
5. Unsend your email gmail (you can decide how long you want Gmail to hold your emails before you send them.
I've cherry picked by favourite from the infographic. Have a gander and see what could enhance your Gmail email.
Somewhat surprisingly, Gmail apparently isn't the most popular email client in the world; the precise numbers depend on which data set you’re looking at (and there are a lot of them out there), but the most recent information I could find, which was published at the end 2015 by Litmus, notes that Gmail accounted for 15.2 percent of opens in November of last year. That puts it in the number two slot, below iOS’ email client (which netted almost a third of all opens — 32.2 percent).
