Have you ever composed an email message and wished you could have it land in the recipient’s inbox at some specific future date and time?
That’s a feature that sure would come in handy at times, right?
For example, maybe you’d like to write someone a birthday greeting ahead of time to make sure you don’t forget it.
That’s all well and good, but what if you forget to log back into your email account and send the message when that person’s birthday actually arrives?
Well, thanks to a recent update to Gmail you can now schedule your emails to be delivered at any specific future date and time of your choosing!
This awesome new feature is extremely easy to use. Just follow the steps below:
1 – Log into your Gmail account.
2 – Compose the email exactly the way you want it, then click the little down arrow beside the Send button.
3 – Click Schedule send.
4 – At this point you can either select one of the suggested times or click Pick date & time.
If you selected one of the suggested times, you’re done. The new email is now sitting in your Gmail account’s “Scheduled” folder just waiting to be delivered at the specific date and time you selected.
If you selected “Pick date & time”, continue with step 5 below…
5 – Edit the displayed date and time to match the date and time you want the message to be delivered.
6 – Click Schedule send.
That’s all there is to it. Your scheduled email is now sitting in your Gmail account’s “Scheduled” folder just waiting to be delivered at the specific date and time you selected.
