For many, email is unavoidable. From personal commnuications between friends and family, notifications from all web services like Facebook, Twiter, Evite and receipts from everything we buy online to work related ones about statuses of projects to delivering assets, we are constantly being notified in our inboxes. Gmail has risen to be the most popular email client yet, many use it without knowing its full potential.

Like many, I've been using Gmail for years in addition to G Suites for Business to run my production company 8:45a. 

Here's what I can do in my Gmail:

  • At a glance, see my top priority emails, the latest emails from my current clients while also seeing the inbox of another email I have for another business
  • Find receipts to every project I've been a part of easily
  • Pull up contracts signed by clients from all my years doing business

While my examples are related to my business, I can assure you that these tips will enable you to see Gmail to its full potential and help you establish your inbox as your Digital Filing Cabinet.
