Just love, love, love the new “Schedule Feature’ Gmail now offers! Why is scheduling emails a beautiful feature to have? It allows the user to compose and schedule an email for automated later delivery on a later date. Much easier than saving in drafts and manually sending the email on a specific date. I like writing messages ahead of time and going back to make edits. Scheduling emails make this a one step process. Imagine no need to stress over forgetting to send an email ever again!

Steps for Scheduling Gmail

  • Open Gmail
  • Click Compose
    • Add Contact
    • Type Subject
  • Type Email
  • Click Down Arrow on Right Side of Send Button
  • Select Schedule Send
  • Choose One of the Recommended Dates
    • or Select a Custom Date & Time
  • Select Schedule Send
  • Choose One of the Recommended Dates
    • or Select a Custom Date & Time

NOTE: Once a date and time is selected a message pop-ups for confirmation

If you want to edit or view the Scheduled Message click the schedule label. You will find a listing of schedule emails under the schedule label.

Yes! You Can Receive Notifications…

There I was reading through posts in a Google Classroom Community when my eye’s fell upon this question. “Can notifications be received when changes occur in my Google Drive?” The answer is yes! Google Drive notifications may be received when there are newly shared items, comments, suggestions, action items or request for access. The user has the choice to receive the notifications as a popup window or in an email. If you would like to setup notifications for Google Drive please follow these steps:

  1. Open Google Drive
  2. In the top right corner, click Settings Cogwheel
  3. Select Settings
  4. Click Notifications
  5. Check or uncheck boxes for the settings of choice
