Are you filled with dread every time you look at your inbox? Wish there was a better way to manage your emails?
If you’ve ever sat down on a Friday night and thought to yourself,
I wish there was a way to schedule this for Monday morning,
Boomerang can help you.
What exactly does Boomerang do?
Boomerang has two key functions:
- It allows you to schedule sending emails
- It returns emails back to your inbox on a specific date based on the recipient’s actions
Let’s dig a little deeper into how you can install Boomerang and use it to manage your inbox better.
Installing Boomerang in Gmail
Boomerang installs as a browser extension and you can find it in the top right-hand corner when you open Gmail.
Boomerang really comes into its own with its in-email menu.
When you hit reply, you’ll see this menu underneath your reply box.
From here you can schedule exactly when this email gets sent! Pretty neat, right?
So if you are writing an email at midnight and want to send it during business hours just hit the Send Later button and chose the exact time you want it to go out.
This can be really useful if you work with people in different time zones and want to send an email when they are most likely to read it.
And that’s not all!
Next to the Send Later button, you’ll notice a small tick box. This is the feature that gives Boomerang its name!
Use it to return this email to your inbox at a specific time if the person you sent it to:
- Didn’t reply
- Didn’t click on the email
- Didn’t open it
Or you can boomerang it back to yourself regardless of what they did.
If you manage multiple team members and clients, you know how easy it is for emails to get buried!
Don’t let that happen to you. Use Boomerang to clean up your workflow and get more done.
Until next time, have fun storming the castle!
