Hi there,

I want to make the decision clear and simple for you. Drag isn’t for everyone. But, if you are part of a team using G Suite – definitely read on.

Below, you’ll find information to help make an informed decision on how Drag compares to Google Groups to share an email address, including features, use cases, pricing and insights into why customers are making the switch.

We hope this helps you understand why Drag is the best alternative to Google Groups.

Drag is more organized than Google Groups

Tired of receiving an email and having to struggle through a never-ending list with your team?

With Drag, you’ll be way more organized using a Kanban layout in email (we call them boards). You know how to use Gmail or Trello? No training needed then.

Drag is a Shared Inbox (Google Groups are not)

Google Groups are built to distribute emails to a Group. It’s a little chaotic and means that everyone in your team receives each email, no-one knows who’s dealing with it and the customer is left confused. Drag is a real Shared Inbox – emails and tasks are managed in one single, shared workspace, where everyone in your team know’s what’s going on and can get things done, faster.

Drag is collaborative for your team

Google Groups helps your team receive incoming emails from a single email address like info@. Drag is the best alternative to Google Groups because it does so much more. You can set up shared boards, send your own emails to boards and collaborate with your team on both emails and tasks. Think of us as your all-in-one inbox, where each team member can read, reply and manage to make sure each and every email is closed.

Drag is more scalable than Google Groups

When you’re starting out, Google Groups may be useful to distribute incoming emails to your team. But when you exceed 2 – 3 people, it can become a real nightmare. With Drag, you can invite an unlimited team to boards and ensure there is accountability in your team.

Manage your team’s workflow from your inbox.

No more navigating between tools or forwarding or cc’ing between internal teams. Drag adds to Gmail in seconds – you know how to use Gmail, so no training needed. Switch to the best alternative to Google Groups now.

Sort emails and tasks

Emails come and go, sometimes it’s hard to keep track. Keep your inbox organized by dragging emails to different columns on your board. It’s really as simple as that.

Colour Coding

Get a better overview of your boards by color-coding them based on time zones, urgency levels or anything that works best for you.

Shared inbox

Manage shared emails like sales@ from Gmail. Your team can use this shared Gmail account like it was their own – it can be used for anything from a simple Help Desk and CRM to a Marketing board.

Internal team chat

@mention your team to start a real-time chat with someone to solve a Help Desk ticket faster, or to close a deal with more value. You can chat, internally, on any shared emails or tasks.

Add tasks to Inbox

Not everything comes as an email, sometimes there’s a separate task. You can add tasks directly to your inbox.

Due dates

Is there a deadline – something you need to get done by a date? Keep things on track by adding a due date.

Checklists and notes

Most emails come with things to get done. Separate these out and add them as actionable tasks.

Calendar integration

Drag syncs. with your Google Calendar. Any email or task with a due date attached, will be automatically added to your Google Calendar so your team knows when stuff needs to be finished.

Email Assignment
