Summer Collaboration Challenge: Week8 - Gmail: Tips and Tricks #14weekchallenge

Manhattan College provides a JasperNet account to all students and employees that comes with email powered by Gmail. As an EDU, your Gmail inbox comes with virtually unlimited storage - eliminating the need to constantly delete messages to save space. In fact, why delete messages at all? See the tips below to find ways to better manage your Gmail inbox.

Tip #1 -  Update your Email Signature
Having a well formatted and consistently branded email signature is a quick and easy way to make a good impression.  Manhattan College provides a template for all employees.  Follow the instructions below to update your email signature.

Tip #2 - Send mail from multiple addresses in one inbox
If you are responsible for several email accounts, you can send messages from any of your different addresses without manually switching between accounts. People you email can then see the address you chose listed as the sender.

Tip #3 - Focus on important messages with Priority Inbox
Want a better way to manage the number of emails in your inbox and how long it takes to go through them? Gmail’s Priority Inbox feature automatically separates your important messages from the rest of your emails so you get to them first. Over time, Priority Inbox gets better at predicting what’s important to you, helping you focus on the emails that matter.
