Inbox management can be a beast sometimes when you’re always doing for others and hardly take the time to stop and organize yourself! In this three-part series, I’m going to take you through setting up an automated inbox system to keep your emails tamed and your stress levels down!
Check out Part 1 of the series and what to expect in Part 3:
Part 1 – Using Labels & Filters
Part 2 – Setting Up Multiple Inboxes
Part 3 – Auto-Archive Email After a Certain Number of Days
Today, in Part 2 of the series, we take on multiple inboxes and setting them up for maximum organization.
Personally, I use the multiple inboxes system to keep my starred items in one place, along with “action needed” items and a reading list of emails I really do want to read at some point. See how I set it all up in the following video.
So far, we’ve added labels and auto-archived emails immediately, as well as sorting different emails into different inboxes. Next up, we discover how to auto-archive emails not immediately, but after 1, 2, 3, or 7 days…whatever we want! I look forward to showing you how it’s done in Part 3. See you there!
I love this video! But I’m having trouble because when I set it up identical to yours, I still can’t see the separate “boxes” like you do. Mine just gives me one long list (with collapsible sections). Do you have any other settings that might be impacting how it displays?
Thanks for reaching out. It sounds like you need to change one more setting: In your settings, where you set up your multiple inboxes, be sure to click “right side of the inbox” for positioning. That should help!
