Great Gmail Tricks

Haven’t ever taken the time to explore Gmail enhancements? It’s long since grown from its day of launch, with more updates than ever before (see there here). Here are some of the best and latest:

Tasks
Keep track of your to-dos with a click of a button. Just type in your new tasks, set your due dates, and check ‘em off when you’re done, no matter if you access it from your phone or computer.

Shortcuts
Navigate with ease and a little know-how. Set your keyboard commands by clicking Settings at the top of your page, then Keyboard shortcuts onand then Save Changes. What does this mean? Just press C to compose mail, R to reply, # to delete, and the list goes on.

Coloured labels
When arranged by colour, each label is easier to find and sort. To apply a colour to a category, simply click the color swatch next to each label.

Befriend the bookmark
Have all your emails within reach using Gmails unique URLs. You can bookmark a message with an appointment or to-do item unrelated to Gmail, or directions to that upcoming wedding in the next city. Like all bookmarks, you can access the message/URL in just one click.
