This week on Monday Productivity Pointers, I’m going to show you a neat little add-on that you can use with your Gmail account to schedule email delivery.
It’s called Boomerang and it works with a Gmail account and the browsers Firefox, Chrome, and Safari.
Boomerang allows you to compose an email and schedule it for a date you specify. With the free version, you can schedule up to 10 emails a month for free. This is fantastic if you have a nice chunk of free time and want to get ahead of your game!
But wait—there’s more. With Boomerang, you also get the ability to “snooze” emails. In a similar fashion to the Mailbox app I showed you a few weeks back, you can make your emails disappear from your Inbox, and like a boomerang, return to your Inbox on a date that you specify.
Watch this week’s free video to see Boomerang in action, starting from the very beginning: how to install it.
Then check back next Monday for more Productivity Pointers.
