Working in between two different time zones or maintaining a work mode on a vacation can be undeniably hectic. That’s why considering scheduling all important emails will enable you to not only catch up with the deadlines but also stay in touch with your work colleagues. With Gmail, you can compose your email and schedule it to send later at your convenient date and time. While you think you can schedule only a few emails, that’s wrong, you can have up to 100 scheduled emails.
How to Schedule an Email in Gmail
Step 1: Go to Gmail and sign in to your Gmail account.
Step 2: Tap on the Compose (pencil-like icon).
Step 3: Next, you will be prompted to enter the recipient’s email address, subject, and text.
Step 4: When using the mobile app, tap on the three dots in the right corner and select Schedule Send. If you are using the web version, tap on the drop-down menu next to the Send button and select Schedule Send.
Step 5: On the next pop-up menu, you will be presented with schedule options like tomorrow morning, this afternoon, and Monday morning. However, if those options do not suit your needs, you can go ahead and schedule a preferred date or time by selecting, Pick Date & Time then click on Schedule Send. That’s it.
