I don’t know if you know about this but one of the features that I like about Gmail is the integration of Google Tasks where I can ‘import’ (I’ll just use this term, for now) my emails as tasks and organize them into lists.
I only use this feature with emails that have accompanying tasks. For example, if I need to reply to the email with a document. If it’s an email that contains information dissemination and something that needs my direct reply, I just leave it in my inbox.
Another thing that I like about this feature is that I can also group emails into lists so I get to be reminded of the tasks that I needed to do and once I’m done, I can just simply remove the email from the list. So, if you’re curious as to how it works, I did a quick video tutorial on my youtube channel which you can view below.
