Gmail is the largest email platform in the world. About 1.8 billion people join it every day. People, however, often do not take full advantage of the features and capabilities that this post has to offer. Letter templates, text translation, automatic mail cleaning are some of the tricks that everyone can benefit from.
Simon Tillindi, a computer expert at Telia, said that most people not only use the features of Gmail but are not even aware of them.
“Why haven’t many useful and useful features of Gmail been used? The answer is simple – not many people know about them. Although mostly in e-mail. Let’s go to e-mail to send each other, just a few tricks will help you to use this e-mail. Mail platform is faster and more convenient,” says S. Tillindis.
cancel sent emails
This option was introduced back in 2015: if you hurry to send a letter, the send can be canceled within 30 seconds. True, this feature needs to be activated. You can do this by clicking the Settings button (the gear in the top right of the window), then clicking “See All Settings” and selecting the “Cancel Send” section to select an interval of 30 seconds. From now on, every time you send an email, a button will appear in the lower left corner of the screen and pressing it will cancel the email.
create email template
If you often write similar letters, you probably won’t feel how your fingers press common phrases. But did you know that you can optimize your business? This will help in creating letter templates. To start using them, you must first enable the following feature: Click the Settings button, select “View all settings”, click “Advanced” in the top row, and enable the template. When you do this, any message you type will become a template, all you have to do is click on the 3 dots in the bottom right corner of the message and select “Save draft as template” before sending . You’ll find it later in the same place to use the template.
Translate received email as you open it
If you receive email in a language you don’t know, let Gmail translate it. After opening the message, click on the three dots in the top right corner and select “Translate message”. This feature is great because it retains the original structure of the message, doesn’t hide images or other design details, and can be translated from any language Google offers.
If you receive a lot of spam, you probably mark it as spam and hope that the next time a similar message is automatically redirected to the spam folder. Unfortunately, this feature is often hesitant, or similar, with only one minor change, the letter will be unnecessary to you. If you want to make sure that messages from unwanted senders no longer bother you, Tillind recommends you use the blocking feature. You can do this by opening Spam, clicking on the three dots in the upper right corner, and selecting “Block”.
Cleaning and ordering your email. in mailbox
If you receive dozens or even hundreds of emails every day, it’s easy to get lost in them. Fortunately, Gmail offers several ways to distribute and sort your inbox. One of the easiest is to use labels. They are easy to make and adapt to your needs. You’ll find this feature in the “Labels” section of the setting.
Additionally, Gmail can automatically sort messages based on rules you set. You can create a Gmail filter by clicking the icon to the right of the search box. In the pop-up box, you will be able to select the senders you need, search terms, and many other criteria by which to filter your mail.

If use sensitive information to send sensitive information in e-mail, or you don’t want the party you sent to be with a friend forever and share it, use “Privacy Mode”. It deletes the message after the time frame you set, which can range from 1 day to 5 years. Recipients will also not be allowed to forward, copy, print or download your email. email, and the recipient will be asked to enter the password you created to read the email. Turn on “Privacy Mode” before sending a message, you’ll find it at the bottom of the Compose Mail box (the lock icon).
use keyboard shortcuts
Gmail has a variety of key configurations that you can use with and without a computer mouse or touch pad with your email. Use mail more productively. Again, this feature must be enabled first. You can do this in Settings by selecting “Enable keyboard shortcuts”. You can now use the keyboard to control chat rooms, do text formatting, manage and browse your mailbox. A Telia expert suggests remembering at least some of the most useful shortcuts: R – Reply to a message. f – forward the letter; K – read another letter; j – read the previous letter; , – report spam; Shift + a – Reply in a new window; Shift + i – Mark as read; Shift + U – Mark as unread; = or + – mark as important.
