Schedule Your Gmail Messages!

We’ve done a number of tips about Gmail… but here’s a new one that is super helpful for busy people.

Is there a certain time of the day when you actually have time to sit down and email? Maybe this is a time when you think others might not be reading their email. A well known one is Friday afternoon…when you think “If I send this now, it might get lost in the other person’s inbox….” Maybe it would be better to send the email out Monday morning, or a week from now. Well, now you can schedule your emails in Gmail!

Curating Content Part 4: Gmail and SPAM filtering

Last time we looked at the ART of Gmail and learned how to Archive – Respond – ToDo. Now we are going to dig a little deeper and see how to further refine the system to make Gmail work smarter for us.

Our first ninja trick is to have our messages automatically labeled for us. We talked briefly about labels when discussing Archiving. A label is attached to a message and groups them together. What is the difference between a label and folder? A message can only be in one folder whereas a message can have more than one label. read more

Curating Content Part 3: The ART of Gmail

Like it or hate it, email is a daily chore for anyone in education.

Gone are the days when we would enjoy the occasional email from fellow educators and enjoyed a SPAM-free existence.

Save time with Gmail keyboard shortcuts

One of the best features of Gmail is the built-in keyboard shortcuts. They allow you to do everything from composing a message to quickly archiving messages.

In order to use keyboard shortcuts, they must be enabled in Gmail settings. To do this, first hit the gear icon at the top right of the Gmail screen, and then go to the Settings.

Scroll midway down the Settings, and make sure that Keyboard Shortcuts are turned ON. Be sure and scroll to the bottom and SAVE your settings.

Now, the keyboard shortcuts will be enabled for you. Try them out… hit the C on your keyboard to begin composing a new message. When you are done, hit Control-Enter to send your message. On a Mac, you’ll use the Command key instead of Control. read more
