​Gmail Best Practices

Gmail is an efficient communication tool not only for individuals but also for organisations. With the new advanced GSuite features by Google, you can now use your Gmail account to organize your work better and enhance productivity at work. These are some of the best practices you can observe when using this communication app:

Keep your conversation threads
Gmail organizes conversations in threads for easy tracking. You need to enable this feature so you can view all correspondence regarding a matter. This is a great time saver because you do not have to keep searching for old emails; if you get one message, you have found the entire conversation.

In order to keep the message thread, always reply on it. However, start a new conversation for new subject matters.

Assign label wisely
Gmail has already done the work of grouping your emails into various categories, from primary, social, promotions and updates. Make sure you turn on this feature before taking advantage of labels. You can label mail differently depending on the source or subject matter for easy retrieval, but do not exceed the set limit of 500 labels. Google can also detect important messages depending on previous labeling and give it a tag, making it more visible and hence easier to open important mails first. Labels also make it easy for you to conduct bulk actions such as deleting emails.

Observe limits when sending mail
Gmail has a daily limit for the number of recipients that can receive mail from one address every day. If you are sending mass messages, consider removing recipients who do not read their messages or engage with your brand. This will ensure that you have enough credits for the day.

Make your payments in time
When using Gsuite for your business, it is recommended that you pay for your emails early enough to avoid bounced emails. In addition, consider renewing your domain and hosting because your email account is attached to it.
