Email Management Tip; Using Boomerang to Effectively Manage Your Inbox

Posted on 13/04/2015, 10:01

If you are tired of your email being disorganised and missing important emails, then it is time you installed the boomerang plugin. This great management plugin not only helps you manage your emails, but it also has the ability to handle several other tasks.

You can use the innovative email scheduling option to set the plugin to send a message after a specific time has lapsed or even set an exact time and date when you want your message to be sent.

If you wish to be prompted that you did not receive a reply to a certain email, just set the boomerang plugin to return your email back to the inbox. To achieve this task, it is generally better that you use the option of using the lapsed time period. If you do get a response during this time, the plugin will smartly call off the return. Many people have found this particular feature useful for following up with other contacts or leads who may take time to respond. This is also beneficial for ensuring that a client starts to work on your requests quickly.

The other tool to help manage your emails offered by boomerang is archiving emails and returning them to your main inbox when necessary. This is rather valuable for certain emails that contain links for webinars, directions to go meet a certain client, or other essential information you require in the near future. Here, you can use the option of setting a specific time and date in the email scheduling option. Rather than simply leaving that particular message in your inbox, you can archive it and have it return automatically when you need it. This can also act as an important reminder of the contents in that email.

Lastly, boomerang also allows you to schedule all outbound emails. Hence, if you do not want people to recognise that you are working overtime and responding to emails at 3:30 am, you can configure boomerang to send out your message at 7am. You can even use this feature to impress your clients by sending them an email very early on a Sunday morning. Simply compose the message on Saturday and then plan it to send automatically on early Sunday morning.

This scheduling option to manage your emails is quite beneficial if you utilise online fax services for sending faxes through email. This means you will not only be able to schedule when to send your emails, but also you can still schedule faxes. This is advantageous when creating discovery responses, and you want to wait some time before sending them out.

Boomerang is simply the best option to manage your emails effectively and reduce clutter in your inbox. Try it out the free version today and experience all these benefits.
