Boomerang for Gmail
Boomerang allows you to schedule messages to be sent or returned at a later date. Write a message now, send it whenever, even if you’re not online. Track messages to make sure you hear back, and schedule reminders right inside Gmail. This tool is definitely a game-changer for me.
Please note: This is not my product but a resource I highly recommend!

This tool is definitely a game-changer for me. My favorite and most used features include:
- Getting an email and then setting it up to leave my inbox for the time-being and return at a designated time. This keeps my inbox clean and I can have them come back at a time that works well for me to deal with them in a group or based on priority.
- Scheduling emails to send at a later date and time. If I want to get a jump start on the week or work on something during off-business hours, which is sometimes needed if I have other appointments/meetings to attend to during my regular work hours, I can take care of emails and schedule them to go out at the start of the next business day – or anytime I want for that matter. I can send out emails regarding next month’s email now…only scheduling them out to show up for my clients on the right date – another great example.
- If I send an email out, I can set it up to remind me that I haven’t gotten a response by a specific date and time, allowing me to not worry about time-sensitive things I may be waiting for.
These are just a few of my favorite ways to use Boomerang. I don’t know how I managed to get along for so long without it. At just under $5 for the personal plan, it’s well worth the flexibility and peace of mind it provides (and there is a free version as well). Using the link in this email will get you a month trial free of charge!
