1–Gmail Tricks — 4 Inbox Hacks
Gmail tricks: 4 inbox hacks I use to manage thousands of emails in under an hour (infographic)
Today, I want to share a quick thing that immediately added hours back to my day: Changing how I wrote and responded to…
“6.3 Hours. The average amount of time people spend on email every day”
Really? I don’t believe that statistic, but it is a lot!
2 — Gmail Keyboard Shortcuts
This infographic lists A LOT of shortcuts.
My tip? Pick 2–3 that will benefit you immediately and start using them! Once you are comfortable, pick 2–3 more! Repeat.
Here are 5 I use repeatedly (to get you started?). NOTE — I show letters as uppercase, but case does not matter:
- “C” — Compose a new message
- “Shift + C” — Compose a new message in a separate window
- “/” — Puts the cursor in the Gmail search box
- “G + L” — Pre-populates search box with “label:” search syntax
- “G + I” — Returns to Inbox view
I hope these ideas and shortcuts get you started on Gmail productivity improvements! I know they will for me.
