We all know that email is vital to our day-to-day business dealings. They are a seemingly endless string of communication we have to deal with. Some emails we look forward to receiving; others go directly to the spam folder. But like it or not, your email account is likely here to stay.
You can streamline your email communications with some very simple add-ons, to help get rid of some of your email headaches. A great resource for these is the Chrome Web Store, where you can find many Chrome plugins that can greatly enhance your productivity in Gmail. Let’s have a look at some of the most popular ones.
When you need to work with a PDF file, here is a very useful and versatile plugin that allows you to open and edit the PDF right from your Gmail. You can fill in fields, sign the doc, and save the new version for your reply or records. Doc Hub helps to streamline and simplify your workflow. You will find it indispensable if you work a lot with PDF files. Visit Doc Hub website.
2. Right Inbox for Gmail.
Here’s a handy little plugin that allows you to schedule your emails so they arrive exactly when you want them to. If the recipient is in a different time zone, for example, you can get your email to them exactly when they need it. You can also track your emails – as they say: “See who opens and clicks your emails in Gmail”. Keep in mind, the features are quite limited unless you subscribe.

8. Simplify Gmail
This plugin was made by an ex Google employee, with the end in mind of making Gmail more easy, capable and respectful.

It allows you to tuck away the features you never use, further cleaning up your Gmail, and hopefully, your productivity.
