Description

The Internet has been trying to kill email for forever and so far, it’s not doing a good job. Why else would there be so many guides and articles out there teaching you how to achieve Zero Inbox or how to be a Gmail power user? This infographic adds to the pile with plenty of doable tips that can help you work faster (use the keyboard shortcuts), more productively (canned responses, auto-archives), and be more organized (use filters, folders and labels) on Gmail. My favorite of the lot has got to be the Undo Send feature which has saved me too many times than I’d like to admit. It’s also interesting to know that you can set the cancellation period for up to 30 seconds after you hit Send.
