Boomerang is a Gmail extension that allow you to schedule, track and resend emails. Here at Dial a Geek we like to keep a tidy inbox and Boomerang is great for reminding us to follow up with clients and emailing people at the right time.
Chief geek Gildas Jones is a recent convert and for him the benefits of Boomerang are improved inbox organisation and better conversation management.
The free service allows you to schedule 10 messages or less a month, or can can pay for more with a personal, pro or premium subscription.
Send Later: You can write an email now and schedule it to be sent automatically at any time from 5 minutes later to 2038.
Reminders: You can also use the mobile app to email reminders to yourself to arrive at the right time. So if you’re out on a Friday evening you can set a reminder for yourself to arrive in your inbox at 9am on Monday morning.
Track Emails: Reminders to follow up on an email, you can set these for when you haven’t received a reply, or when you have. Email receipts let you know when your email has been read.
Boomerang: Received an email that you don’t need to deal with right now? Postpone the email and it will boomerang into your inbox again when you need it.
If you need help managing your emails then Boomerang could be the extension you’ve been dreaming of.
