Email is a huge part of our professional lives. How do we get some control over it? What if you wanted to send an email later at a specified time? What if you wanted a follow up reminder? What if you wanted to be reminded if someone has not responded to your email? What if you wanted a gauge to know if an email is written in such a way that it is respondable?

It works with Gmail and G Suite (Google Apps, like our HUSD accounts) email.
- You can send an email at a specified time (I have used this feature for this email and for emails about PD information in the past).
- You can flag an email to deal with it later.
- You can flag an email to get a reminder if someone has not responded in a set amount of time.
- You can get a score to gauge if an email is written in such a way that it will generate a response. Boomerang takes into account email properties like subject length, word count, question count, and reading level to generate the score.
There is a free account. The free account lets you flag 10 emails a month. I use this tool some and have never come close to that limit, but power users might run into that limit often.
Was this useful? Was this a waste of time? Would you like more information? Would you like to never hear from me again? Don’t hesitate to give me feedback. I know your time is precious… and I hope to send out value-added content instead of dang-that-is-five-minutes-of-
