Easily Manage Email Overload With Gmail Priority Inbox
Are you using Gmail or Google Apps as your primary email for communication? Are you facing “Email overload” problem? You will be happy to know that Google is going to help you with the problem with Gmail’s new feature — Gmail Priority Inbox. With loads of emails coming in every day, it becomes really messy and unbearable at times. But, with Gmail Priority Inbox, managing the email inbox will become very easy by helping you kill email overload.
What is Gmail Priority Inbox?
Think Gmail Priority Inbox just like your personal assistant. Priority Inbox helps you focus on the email messages that really matters for you that too without you have to set up complex filters in your Gmail settings. Yes, you can previously do this with the Multiple Inboxes Gmail labs feature, but these new settings make things easier to understand and carry out. The three default sections here are: “Important & unread,” “Starred,” and “Everything else.”
Priority Inbox splits your inbox into three sections: “Important and unread,” “Starred” and “Everything else” As messages come in, Gmail automatically flags some of them as important. Gmail uses a variety of signals to predict which messages are important, including the people you email most (if you email Bob a lot, a message from Bob is probably important) and which messages you open and reply to (these are likely more important than the ones you skip over). And as you use Gmail, it will get better at categorizing messages for you.
Where is Gmail Priority Inbox? I can’t find it.
Gmail Priority Inbox is in beta and Google is slowly rolling it out. Priority Inbox will be rolling out to all Gmail users, including those of you who use Google Apps, over the next week or so. Once you see the “New! Priority Inbox” link in the top right corner of your Gmail account (or the new Priority Inbox tab in Gmail Settings), take a look.
