Boomerang will be added to chrome and will now be visible while you are working in Google Mail. Once Boomerang is added, you will be able to schedule specific times for messages to be sent, or event schedule recurring messages. On top of that, you can even Boomerang your message back to your inbox as a reminder! Let us show you how you can effectively use Boomerang.
Schedule Your Messages
While composing messages, you will now notice a 'send later' option at the top of the message you are working on. This button will allow you to schedule a specific time for the delivery of your message. So, if a colleagues birthday is on Firday, and it is currently Monday, you can write that Happy Birthday email and have it be delivered on the appropriate day!
Aside from the 'send later' option, you also have the ability to Boomerang messages back into your inbox. This way, you don't have to try and keep track of those messages you are waiting responses from. This option is located directly below the subject line in your email message.
