How To Boost Your Email Game
Track, schedule, and follow-up on emails to impress recruiters, TAs, and colleagues.
Students in 2018 are juggling more and more in their daily life: studies, work, internships, extracurriculars, passion projects, families, obligations, etc. It’s quite easy to end up stressed and overwhelmed.
Keeping up with everything is definitely a struggle, but when you know that most assignments, bills, job alerts, course updates and deadline reminders all come in through your inbox, email management could be the key to handling it all.
Having the upper hand on your overfilled inbox is a simple matter of having the right tools at your disposal. Using Gmail power user tips can give you an immediate head start: adding folders to your inbox, labeling conversation with priority tags, and filtering recurring messages to keep things organized. But if you want to really boost your email game, Gmelius is the next step up. Gmelius is a complete communication solution that offers a powerhouse of email management tools to help boost your email management – and reduce your stress levels.
An absolute game changer. I use the snooze feature to make sure I never forget a note from a professor after procrastinating for a week on assignment. The tracking feature reveals whether a TF is completely ignoring my request to regrade a pset, or just hasn't opened my emails yet. The send-later feature lets me schedule emails to be sent promptly at 9am in the morning, like a responsible student—convenient when I need to hide the fact that I finally got around to checking my emails at 1am after binging Netflix. – Nathan Y.

You can, for example, track and schedule your outgoing emails as well as organize them in a Trello-like board right inside Gmail to be on top of everything that goes in and out of your inbox. You can also use private notes to write down anything you need to remember before sending out an email or use templates to save time on email writing when handing in yet another project.
