Updates to the email alert template also mean that you now get individual alert every time a piece of feedback comes in, as opposed to a single email string previously. If you are getting bombarded by too many emails and are a Gmail user, this short guide on setting email rules could help to keep your email lists tidier.
1. Go to your Gmail inbox and navigate to the ‘create new label’ button on the left-hand side of your screen (this is the list of folders under the red ‘compose’ button).
2. Click the ‘create new label’ and give the new folder a specific name - this is where all of your feedback alerts will be held. This little exercise aims to declutter your main inbox, however, don’t forget to keep checking your feedback alerts regularly.
3. Once the folder is set up, go to one of the feedback alert emails in your inbox. Open is and click on the drop down menu button on the far right, next to the reply button. Choose the option ‘Filter messages like this’
4. This is where you will set a rule for all feedback emails to be placed into your new folder. Default option will use the ‘from’ filed and the firstname.lastname@example.org email address. Leave this option as is and click the ‘Create filter with this search’ option in the bottom right of the pop-up window.
5. On the following screen, tick the options ‘Skip the inbox (Archive it)’ and ‘Apply the label:(choose your new folder here)’.
6. You are now set to go with a uncluttered inbox.
