Boomerang For Gmail Updates, Adds Notes, Reminders

Previously mentioned Gmail scheduling tool Boomerang updated this week and now includes the ability to add notes to your messages so you can remind yourself why you delayed them or set them to return on a specific date, as well as recurring messages that you compose once and will reappear regularly without having to send them again.

Also in the update is a new smart menu of settings that puts the message schedules you most often use at the top. If you’re most likely to set a message to return in a week, or delay sending a message for a few hours, you’ll see those options first instead of having to scroll to find the right time. The new reminders tool lets you add notes to your scheduled messages so you can remind yourself why you delayed it in the first place, or why you chose the schedule you chose. Finally, recurring messages lets you send a note once about a regular task or responsibility and get reminders each time you need to remember it.

Boomerang is still a freemium service, and the recurring messages are only available to Pro users ($US15/month.) The new notes feature is available to both Pro users and Personal accounts ($US4.99/month,) and the smart menu will be available to everyone, including free accounts. Do you use Boomerang to manage your Gmail account? Will this update make you hop back on-board if you left? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
