While viewing the Labs in the Gmail settings. I found one I had never noticed prior. This feature will help you get those messages cleared out of your inbox. I have found this feature saves at least one click per email replied to.

For me, this feature comes in handy because, the bulk of email transactions I do require me to reply to the sender with some type of information or link. Upon sending I would consistently forget to archive the email, thus leading to a cluttered inbox. I usually thought if only there was an easy way to archive those types of communication, it would aid in my clutter free inbox.

Send and Archive

There is good news, the team at Gmail Labs has such a feature. It is called ‘Send and Archive’. Once installed, I found myself using it quite frequently. No more do I need to send the email, then click archive after the fact. This feature installs a new send button, so you can click either ‘Send’ or ‘Send and Archive’. I love it!

To install this feature you must do the following:

  • Click on the gear icon in the Gmail inbox
  • Click Settings
  • Click the Labs Menu
  • Scroll down until you see the ‘Send and Archive’
  • Click Enable
  • Do you have any features you would like to see in Gmail? Leave a comment let me know.
