Google recently rolled out an important update for it’s mail service, GMail. With, the new feature you get to see a bifurcated Inbox instead of the old sluggish which had all types of mails categorized under one window. GMail’s new tabbed feature separates your mails according to the category they fall in.
Basically, there are five tabs in the new inbox, Primary, Social, Promotions, Updated and Forums. Under, the Primary section, all important and starred mails are listed (for eg, personal message, etc.). The Social category list all the mails which are sent from Social network such as, Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn.
The last section i.e., Promotion comprise of all promotional updates from websites with whom your email is subscribed too. In a way, this is a very good feature as it dislocates the unnecessary emails which nobody gives a damn. Even, if someone is interested he can just switch to the tab and check the concern mail. But, the catch here is that it has now became difficult for email marketers to attract online users for their services.
However, the tabbed interface in Gmail inbox is not available by default for all the users. Some may be still thinking of that why has Google been partial in rolling out the feature in my inbox. Gmail Tabbed interface needs to be enabled just with a little configuration which has been jotted down below.
How to enable Tabbed interface in GMail
Step 1) Sign-in your GMail account.
Step 2) Move to the Settings option in extreme right of the window.
Step 3) Select, Configure Inbox.
Step 4) A new window shall open from which you need to select the tabs that you want to enable.
Step 5) If you want to enable all the tabs check all the three, Primary, Social and Promotions. Also, check “Include Starred in Primary” as it will flash the mail marked as Important in Primary category.
Step 6) Save the changes and you’re done.
In case, you want to separate updates and forum messages, select the rest of the two option also. I usually don’t get too many updates and forum messages so I have just restricted the mailbox to three tabs. Isn’t it a fantastic way to use GMail ?? What’s your say on this ??
