We released some awesome new features last night (6/21) to Boomerang for Gmail. You should see the changes the next time you load Gmail. If you do not see the changes, try restarting your browser. Here are some details:
Streamlined Boomerang and Send Later Menus
The “At a specific time” window is now integrated into the menu. We hope that this will make it easier for you to specify a custom time and reduce a couple mouse clicks for you.
Track responses from the Boomerang menu — not just while sending a message.
You can now track response to any message – in your inbox, sent mail, or anywhere else – and Boomerang it only if you don’t get a response. This was one of the most popular feature requests from Boomerang customers.
Did you know there’s a Boomerang menu at the top right of the Gmail screen?
It’s now a drop down menu, including ways for you to view and manage your scheduled messages, and tell your friends about Boomerang.
Schedule messages from the standalone Compose window.
This feature was requested often by Boomerang customers. So those of you who made the request, this is for you!
You can also now specify a custom date and time to track responses to a message you are sending. Before you were limited to choose one of the default time options, now you can choose any date, time to your heart content!
Improved support for multiple accounts sign-in.
My favorite feature of this update is that Boomerang no longer requires me to select which account I want to use every time I switch between my Gmail and Google Apps email addresses. It knows which account I am in and maps the right account.
Manage Boomerang page improvements
We added links to open up individual scheduled messages in new browser windows.
