Are you filled with dread every time you look at your inbox?
Do you wish there was a better way to manage your emails?
Have you 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 do all these things and so much more.
What exactly does Boomerang do?
Boomerang has two key functionalities:
- It allows you to schedule sending emails
- It returns emails back to your inbox at a specific date based on the actions of the recipient
Lets dig a little deeper into how you can install it 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.
But 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 that 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.
But, this isn’t all!
Next to the orange 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 this to:
- did not reply to it
- did not click it
- did not open it
- regardless of their actions
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 work flow and get stuff done.
Until next time, have fun storming the castle!
