New feature alert: Reminders updates and attachment previews

Great news. Nylas N1 now supports reminders for sent messages and attachment previews on macOS!

Set reminders for sent messages

Following up at the right time is the key to maintaining momentum in any conversation. That’s why N1’s automated reminders are so powerful.

Starting in the 0.4.204 release of N1, you can now create reminders on previously sent messages (in addition to new messages). These reminders will bring the thread back to the top of your inbox if you don’t receive a reply by the time you specify.

Preview attachments

Our latest release also includes an attachment handling upgrade for Mac users. On macOS, you can now preview attachments using the space key or the new quick look icon. Attachment items will now also display a thumbnail preview for the file when available.

And in case you missed it, we’ve launched some other new features recently too:

  • Undo send. Everyone hits “send” just a moment too soon once in a while. Now you can click Undo and the message will be saved to your Drafts folder instead. You can choose the time window for the Undo function in Preferences > General.
  • Thread sharing. With a click of the Share button, you can create a unique URL to share an email thread with teammates and partners. The link will let them see the conversation as it is updated in real time. Curious about what you can do with shared threads? Check out this article.
