How To Schedule Emails in Gmail Account
An expert in email handling has just revealed how he used to schedule emails with his Gmail account. According to his explanation, Gmail alone does not have email scheduling features rather he used an add-on to be able to automate the email sending method.
Though the add-on is not usually incorporated into the Gmail account, the Boomerang add-on proved very effective in scheduling emails from the Gmail account.
The add-on known as Boomerang will allow the account owner to schedule an email so that it can be sent later, besides that, it can also offer response tracking, click tracking, read receipt, and reminders features.
When I accessed the boomerang website at boomeranggmail.com, I discovered that the developers offer 30 day free trial for the professional version which gives the intending users the opportunity to try the product first before making the decision to purchase.
Besides the professional version, it also has the basic plan which is completely free but has lots of limitations as compared to the paid version, the purpose of the basic plan is to keep the users intact in the case they like to upgrade later to the professional version since free version can only send 10 scheduled emails per month.
The process of using the add-on is simple especially for the Gmail account, below are the detailed steps:
After the installation in your browser, log in to your Gmail account using the browser and you will see that it has automatically been installed into your Gmail account.
Now it is time to check how it works. Compose an email as though you are sending it to someone.
At the sending options, you will see the “send it later” option click on it.
The last action will activate the boomerang pop-up that has many options like the time you want to schedule the email.
The option such as tomorrow morning means that the email will be sent by 9.30 am while afternoon means it will be sent by 12.00 pm. However, you can precisely select or input the actual time you want the mail to be sent.
For an email schedule longer than 24 hours, like scheduling for a predefined date and time, click on the corresponding option to schedule to that time and any custom date and time setting must be confirmed in the options button before the scheduling becomes effective.
With the last action, your email will be successfully scheduled to the time set for it. Besides the scheduling function, the add-on will help the sender to track the performance of the email through the various features attached to the professional version of the Boomerang.
Though the use of the add-on for email schedules is a new advancement to Gmail accounts, it is believed that a similar add-on may exist for other email hosting firms such as Yahoo and Hotmail.
