Gmail hack: Organize your Gmail inbox with filters
Spending an hour organizing your filters now will save you a ton of time down the road. Filters automatically sort incoming mail into labeled folders which you can access in the left sidebar of your desktop setup. They can also organize emails by date, sender, certain words, and even automatically delete emails from a certain sender. To create them, go to Settings > Filters and Blocked Addresses > Create a new filter. From there, build out filters that make sense with your workflow. Perhaps you’d like all messages with the word “internship” in the subject line to go into a folder labeled “Summer Internship Applications.” Or maybe you’d like all messages from your human resources point person and timesheet manager to file into a folder labeled “Admin.” Up to you. To finish, click the Create filter button.
