Email Overload? Gmail Priority Inbox Can Help!

I have been using Gmail for quite some time now and it’s been really a great help. I especially love Gmail Labs! As if that wasn’t excellent enough, Google’s creative ideas now has another innovation for a lot of us who are overwhelmed by too much email: Gmail Priority Inbox.

What is Gmail Priority Inbox

You know how our inboxes are often flooded with a lot of messages daily? There’s mail our colleagues, from our subscriptions, from family and friends, and spam. Some of these emails need to be answered right away, some can be ignored and deleted and some may need responding at some point later. It can be very difficult keeping track of it, right?

If you’re having trouble dealing with your mails daily, then this is the perfect solution. It can be really time-consuming to figure out which mails need to be read or deleted and what needs a reply ASAP.

What if your mail could predict what’s really important for you without you having to sort through everything one by one?

This is what Gmail’s Priority Inbox does. It’s a great new way to handle information overload in Gmail. It helps you focus on the messages that really matter, without any complicated rules.

How it works

In the words of Google itself, “Priority Inbox splits your inbox into three different sections: “Starred,” “Important and unread,” and “Everything else.” When you activate Gmail Priority Inbox, as your messages come in, Gmail automatically flags some of them as important. Amazingly, Gmail uses a variety of signals to predict:

Which messages are important, including the people you sent an email the most (if you email Jack a lot, a message from Jack is probably important); and

Which messages you open and reply to!

Your daily use of Gmail should “teach” it to categorize your messages for you! How cool is that?

Also, by clicking the plus or minus buttons at the top of the inbox to properly mark a conversation as important or not important, you help Gmail learn your email reading and replying pattern! What’s more, you can:

– set up filters to always mark certain things important or unimportant; or change and customize the 3 inbox sections!

The Gmail Priority Inbox is undoubtedly a great system, and easy way to quickly see what needs immediate responding and what can wait – great for your time management techniques!
