The Gmail compose box, which was released late last year, now allows users to add labels and stars to messages.
“How many times have you been writing an email and had to reference something in another message? Saving a draft, opening the old email, and then reopening your draft wastes valuable minutes. The new compose pops up in a window, just like chats (only larger),” said product manager Phil Sharp on the Google Enterprise blog.
“This makes it easy to reference any other emails without ever having to close your draft. You can even do a search or keep an eye on new mail as it comes in. And because the compose window works the same way as chats, you can write multiple messages at once and minimize a message to finish it later.”
Gmail users can now add stars to important messages in the compose box and labels in order to categorise them, making sorting and finding sent emails easier and quicker.
The update was announced by the Gmail Google+ account, informing users that both new features can be found in the More Options menu of the compose box.
