Notes and shared notes inside Gmail
Add context to any email conversation by including private notes. Collaborate behind the scenes by sharing these notes with members of your team. Any information on a private note is visible only to you and the people you share the note with, but never to the original sender.
Private notes are useful for:
- Adding information (such as to-dos and findings) related to a particular email
- Helping you save time and stay on top of things by showing email context right in your inbox
- Sharing notes with others so everyone in your team has access to the same information for future reference
The private note functionality is activated by default under your Gmelius dashboard.
When you open an email, you will notice a widget on the right-hand side of your message, where you can add private notes:
To save a note, either click on the
Save note button or use the keyboard shortcut
Crtl + Enter
In your inbox view, you’ll notice that threads with notes attached are highlighted with a blue icon. You can preview the notes by hovering over the icon.
PRO TIP: Notes are searchable using the regular Gmail search function. Simply type a word belonging to the body of the note within the search box and click on the corresponding entry.
Notes can be shared with multiple recipients who also use Gmelius.
To share a note, type “@” followed by the name of the person you wish to share with. Confirm by selecting the name that autocompletes.
The shared note will be connected with the correct message and will instantly appear in the mailbox of the recipient.
By providing context for particular emails, private notes save you time. In addition, shared notes allow everyone in your team to log updates for future reference.Get Gmelius Now arrow_forward
