Best practices for Gmail on desktop and mobile

In September, 2016, I published “How I tamed Gmail at work” to share my own Gmail practices.

Since writing the original article, I’ve learned how to better handle the day to day switching between desktop browser and the mobile Gmail client. Today, I updated the article accordingly. If you followed my original suggestions, I suggest switching from using the orange star for the TODOs inbox to the yellow star to take advantage of the mobile version of Gmail since it only supports the yellow star.

I also published “Using Gmail like vi — keep your hands on the keyboard”, a guide for shortcut power users.
