Gmail Productivity Tip: Let BombBomb Remember and Remind
Whether you’re using Gmail.com or a Google Apps domain, you can install and use BombBomb’s Google Chrome extension.
This extension significantly powers up your Gmail inbox.
And now, in addition to non-open reminders, you can easily set opportunity reminders with it.
The non-open reminders are set at the time of send on the BombBomb Powerwheel. They let you know if an email or video email you sent from Gmail hasn’t been opened by a specific time you prescribe: one hour, one day, one week, or a custom time chosen off a calendar (today at 4pm, for example).

The opportunity reminders can be set on any email or email thread in your inbox. They remind you to follow up on that email or email exchange at a specific time you prescribe: one hour, one day, one week, or a custom time chosen from the calendar (Friday morning at 10am, for example).
Setting Your Reminder To Increase Gmail Productivity
When you’ve selected any email in your inbox, hover over the little BombBomb icon at top center and click “Set Follow-up Reminder.”
Then, choose when you want to be reminded. You have 3 default times and the opportunity to choose any day or time from a calendar by clicking “Custom.”
Opportunity Reminder: Quick Screen Takeover
When your reminder time arrives, you’ll get a quick screen takeover as a reminder. You can click on the subject line of the email to go straight to that email.
Opportunity Reminder: Gmail Tracking Feed
The reminder also appears in your tracking feed down the right side of the Gmail inbox. This panel can be opened and closed as desired. [Click here to learn more]
Soon, it will also feed into the mobile app tracking feed, too.
Increase your Gmail Productivity
Don’t try to commit your opportunities to memory. Don’t let them get buried under 3 days of emails because you were out of the office.
Just select an email and set a reminder.
Let BombBomb remember and remind you of the opportunity, then follow up as desired.
Two More Time-Saving Tips for Gmail
On average, we speak 4x faster than we type. And when we speak, we don’t have to worry ourselves with some of the spelling, grammar, and punctuation challenges that come with writing.
Stop writing the same emails over and over. Stop recording the same videos again and again. Select and save any text block or text and image block, then insert it again into more emails in the future.
