A new way to stay on top of your unread tracked emails

How do you keep track of messages that still haven’t received any response? Maybe your cross-reference your inbox with your sent folder and try and match up responses with outgoing messages. Or maybe you’re a bit more organized and keep a spreadsheet or some sort of digital record of your flow of emails and replies.

Until now, Gmail hasn’t provided an easy or intuitive way of knowing which of your emails still haven’t received replies. That’s where one of our latest mini-features, Filter Unread Messages, comes in.

What’s ‘Filter Unread Messages’?

It’s a special filter that allows you to view, at a glance, all of the tracked messages you’ve sent in the past month that still haven’t been opened. The idea is to make it easier to figure out which conversations you might need to revisit or follow up with.

How to filter your unopened tracked messages​

  1. When you go to your ‘Sent’ folder, you’ll see both your untracked emails as well as the emails you’ve sent using Mailtrack.
  2. At the top of the list (next to the ‘Select All’ checkbox ), click on the double checkmark icon (✔✔). (You’ll now see just the emails you’ve sent using Mailtrack that are still unopened.)

To return to your complete list of sent emails, just click on the double checkmark icon again.

As always, we hope you find this feature useful. Do let us know your thoughts in the comments.
