Make your inbox more productive by transforming Gmail into organized lists (like Trello, in Gmail). Organize by drag ‘n’ drop, inside Gmail.
Why improve Email Productivity?
The average person spends 6.3 hours per day in their inbox, yet we still use a single chronological list of emails that has been around for over 10 years. Imagine how much more productive you can be with an improved way of organizing your emails?
Transform your inbox into boards
Turn your inbox into multiple lists (we call them boards), in seconds. Create customized lists and organize your inbox by drag ‘n’ drop.
Add tasks into Inbox
Most emails are To-Dos. Why do task management tools and Inboxes need to work separately? You live in your Inbox, so should the things you need to get done.
Assign checklists, comments and due dates
Most emails include tasks to get done. Use checklists and comments to add all the information you need, in one place, your inbox.

Business tools are allowing people to collaborate. Live chat apps have reached millions of users that prefer to communicate in a group on real time instead of sending time-consuming emails. Each day more and more files are shared on the cloud with several users, throw a simple shareable link, allowing people to work together on the same document from different computers. Why until today, why are not allowed to share email?
Organize Gmail, is it a thing? For many people it might be something they don’t perceive, but undoubtedly it makes your productivitygoreallylow.
As it happens with most everything you use on a daily basis, emails get quite messy when you don’t organize it constantly. Although many people struggle with it every day, others have learned tricks on how to optimize time and keep things organized, and this is what I want to share with you all today.
Google launched Gmail more than 14 years ago, and nowadays it has over 1.2 billion users — which makes it one of the biggest email providers on Earth. People use Gmail everyday, multiple times a day, and it means that:
it has a massive system;
over a billion people try to find different ways to organize Gmail.
Here at Drag we work directly with Gmail — and so does our tool —, so it’s our interest to keep track of what changes will concern this incredible email service provided by Google. New Gmail? Let’s go!
Last week, Google revealed how the most popular email provider will look like in the short future. Many changes are expected to happen still in the first semester of 2018. These changes will start on the visuals. The new screens will be much closer to Google’s Material Design concepts, making it more attractive to users.
Email how we use today has changed so much over the last years. It started as a simple tool to communicate and replicate physical mail. Today, it’s very collaborative and (usually) makes work more organized.
At the same time, To-Do lists are a fundamental tool on the business World. If you think about it, your business Inbox most probably works as a place where you receive tasks (in format of emails).
Wait! If emails and To-Do’s most times mean the same, why don’t they share the same space in Gmail?
Well, we all know how messy our inboxes can get, right? Being able to organize them is not something we are everyday, and once it’s cluttered, goodbye productivity. Organizing Gmail is something much easier said than done. When you start actually doing it, you realize it can take much more time than expected.
You see, not everything must be painful, but in order to achieve a decluttered and clean email, there are some steps to climb and mindsets to change, so let’s start it out.
