Add important details you don’t want to include in emails

Context is king. No email you or anyone else writes, contains all details you need to take proper action. Notes enable you to store thoughts and ideas exactly where you need them so you always get the full picture.

Outsource your brain

Outsource your brain so you can focus on human relations

Paper gets lost and brains are limited. By storing important information where it’s relevant, you’ll free up mental space to focus on building human relations while making sure you won’t drop the ball.

Notes are like post-its for email only you can see

Notes work wonderfully well with other Right Inbox features like Reminders. You won’t just be reminded about conversations that require your attention, you’ll also know why you had to be reminded in the first place and have everything you need to act at your fingertips.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does the email notes feature do?

Not every email you send or receive has all the information you might need to remember further down the line. The Email Notes feature within Right Inbox allows you to add granular context to your email – private notes that you set to remind yourself of any specific actions you need to take, or relevant details that you thought were important when an email came in.

Can other people see my notes?

No – they are only accessible to you.

How do I use email notes?

  1. When you receive an email, click the little Notes Icon. You can find this in the top ribbon of the email and is to the right of the Reminder button.
  2. Add in whatever notes you need to give the email more context.
  3. You can also choose to add a Note Gmail Label automatically and also to see the note automatically when you open the email.
