Tips & Tricks that can help you conquer your GROWING Gmail Inbox in 2014!


Boomerang allows you to schedule messages in Gmail to send at a later time, remind yourself to follow up on an important message, and keep track of who responds.

  • Never forget to follow up on an email
  • Send and receive emails when you want
  • Keep track of messages that require responses

Boomerang is a plugin for Firefox and Chrome that adds a time dimension to Gmail for Google Apps accounts. Boomerang allows you to control when you send and receive messages so that the right messages are in the right place, at the right time.
Free for Basic plan

There are 3 main features to help achieve this:

Send Later - Using the simple “Send Later” button, you can schedule messages to send at a later time. The “Send Later” menu gives the option to choose from a set of common send times or specify the exact date and time that the email is to be sent. Without needing to log back in to hit “Send” or even have a network connection, Boomerang will automatically deliver the message at the desired time.

Boomerang Reminders - When you receive an important email that you want to check back on in the future, you can use the “Boomerang” button to remind yourself. This feature archives the message for now and returns it to the top of the inbox when specified. This helps ensure that the message is readily available when needed and reminds you to take action on messages when the time is appropriate.

Response Tracking – Boomerang’s response tracking feature helps you remember to follow up with people if you don’t hear back within a given amount of time. This feature will place the sent message at the top of the inbox if you don’t hear back within the specified time frame, alerting you to follow up with another email.
