- With ActiveInbox the labelling is very easy. You can customize it. Now I have 1.Action 2.Next 3.Soon 4.Later 5.Someday. You can also Label on projects, time, context and user. The labelling occurs organized on the left side. For instance all projects under P/(project) and T/(time it takes to do) and C/ on context for instance C/call and U/user (type in name). The only thing is that it now only works on Chrome. I have no Chrome on the mobile yet. But you can still use the labels by typing it in.Apr 3, 2012
- Ok I am behind now on all the specs. I need to add all these functionalities!! This is a post i need to label ;-) Thank you very helpfull!!Apr 3, 2012
- I think ActiveInbox looks great, very innovative. But for me, maybe it's more than is needed. And I want to keep Gmail as minimalist as possible.
There's also Right Inbox, which adds Send Later and Track (read receipt) to Gmail. http://www.rightinbox.com/
I added the 6 "When" labels from TSW to Gmail, and nested them under a label for Action. If I don't want to forward to Evernote, I can label, mark as unread and archive. So they're still visible in the left column, like in Evernote. Here's a screenshot: http://goo.gl/bXXRa
Getting the inbox empty is good for my mental health. :DApr 3, 2012
- Ok, I have it too now also. But now the Actions etc are on top of the page. I like it that I only have to click on it. When finished, I can archive it without the labels. But I reckon you are more experienced with all the features of Gmail. I am not.Apr 3, 2012
- You've got it. I label everything in Gmail that I don't delete outright, mostly using filters. So when I remove the Action label, it'll still have it's original label/s for the sender, project, etc.
My big problem with email is all the fun and interesting subscription mail I get and don't have time to read. All that gets auto-labeled and skips the Inbox, so I can read it later if I have time.
This has been a very useful thread, Ellen. Thanks for starting it. TSW is going to be helpful for my large projects, which have many component tasks. For one-off "to-dos," I think I I'll keep using www.rememberthemilk.com; at least, for now.Apr 3, 2012
