Let’s Play Tag
Gmail is one of the most widely used email services on the planet, and for good reason. It’s easy to use, fast, and is surprisingly affordable (and even free in some cases). But, you might not know how to use Gmail’s tagging capabilities to make it slightly more complicated, yet considerably more powerful. Google calls them ‘labels,’ and here are a few tips to help you utilize them to organize and quickly access information when time is of the essence.
Tip #1: Adding labels is easy (and fun!)
Tip #2: Keep your labels to a minimum
Having too many labels can actually hinder your ability to find information quickly. This might seem counter-intuitive, but if you’re trying to manage dozens of obscure labels you’ll likely forget which ones you used to file important messages. Labels are solely there to assist organization and effectively segment your inbox.
